(for an audio teaser, click this link for a reading of a short excerpt from the novel, North and South.)http://www.richardarmitagenet.com/files/sounds/north-and-south-extract.mp3
(Hooked yet?!!) 😀
IF…you adore old-fashioned love stories, try watching Richard Armitage and Daniela Denby-Ashe bring John Thornton and Margaret Hale to life!
IF…you’re bored with the offerings of summer television programming, turn the dial to the adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel, North and South, never seen on US television before…well, we don’t think it’s been broadcast here.
IF…you’re partial to the excellence of BBC productions such as Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and perhaps Persuasion…or maybe Sense and Sensibility, think about viewing another wonderful BBC mini-series!
IF….18 years ago you fell in love with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and Jennifer Ehle as Lizzie, you “may” 😉 be equally enthralled with Thornton and Hale?!
IF…you know little about 19th century Northern England politics, social problems and/or culture, by all means join the crowd tonight on channel 259!
IF…you fear getting caught up in a wonderful tale of romance, cultural upheaval and Victorian society…stay away from the TV, for I promise, you’ll love this mini-series.
And…finally, IF you crave beautiful soundtracks, perfect costuming, outstanding acting, perfect visuals and exquisite writing…come on…pop some popcorn, make some tea, get comfy and see just exactly why this mini-series crashed the internet BBC boards in 2004 throughout England!!
7:00-11:00 TONIGHT on the Inspiration channel 259!! Finally, the USA gets to see this delightful, inspiring, magnificent movie! And yes, I’m running out of adjectives…
PS If you loved Brendan Coyle as Bates in Downton Abbey, you’ll be happy to know that he plays a main character in North and South!
*AND….IF…you watch the mini-series tonight and/or comment here on North and South, I’ll put your name in a drawing for a DVD set of North and South, the winner of which will be announced next week. (You’ll have to get your own back up copy. And back up for the back up. Yes, I do…)
