I could not find THE DUCHESS OF DUKE STREET on any of your lists, etc. OMG - one of the BEST series EVER! If you like period dramas you would love this, too.
Here is a synopsis from Netflix:
This acclaimed BBC miniseries traces the triumphant, 20-year ascent of ambitious 19th-century scullery maid Louisa Leyton (Gemma Jones), who rises through the ranks to eventually rub elbows with the rich and powerful. After persevering through a turbulent marriage and financial hardship, Louisa becomes mistress of the successful Bentinck Hotel in London, an establishment that caters to only the most discerning of Edwardian society.
The tudors is NOT a BBC production....neither are a few others!! :) but i love them all.
Little Dorrit is the BEST BBC period drama series i'v ever seen, it's just AMAZING
Lark Rise to Candleford is the best TV series so far. The music is so catchy & delightful. The acting is SUPERB. Not boring & dragged out like Cranford. You can see the entire 3 seasons & all the episodes & parts on youtube WITHOUT THE SUBTITLES.
America/Canada would be wise to make more period films/TV series such as the above & less of the tiresome blood & guts violence.
North and South is the best so far.The actors and the details on the set is superb.
we need more good period movies and if you are going to bother of making them then please make them good !!
pride and predjudice is virtually word for word from the book.I read it then watched it then read it again...masterpiece...that's why it has the acclaim.watched many since (bbc dramas that is)infact almost all and Emma is the closest second if you haven't yet I envy the treat you have to come.Jonny Lee Miller at first an unlikely Knightly is perfect for the part...get ready to fall in love people.
lark rise is wonderful but just wait till you yanks get emma around the 10th english drama at its very best you cant match that nowhere nohow
I like a lot periodical drama. I'm trying to translate the Wuthering Heights 2009 to portuguese. I woulk like to know if someone could rip the close caption in english. It would be very good for us. Tkx
I've seen quite a lot but not all. I read the books first then see the film to see what has been lost in translation. the only ones I will see prior to reading the book are the ones done by Andrew Davies as I know he will stay very true to the book and very little is lost in translation.
I love period dramas! I haven't seen all of these, but I hope to see most of them!
Some of these versions I have not seen, though I have seen other adaptations of the books. I was happy to see some of my favorites on the list. And there are others that I'm looking forward to see once I can get a hold of a copy. I read your posting about the results--you liked Berkeley Square? My roommate and I certainly enjoyed as we watched. Until the very end. And we just couldn't believe that a movie THAT long could end like that! But I'm glad to know we aren't the only two who have ever seen it! :-)
Missed the last episode of Wives and daughters wish they wouold show it again!!!!
I only checked the exact films I have seen, although I have seen other versions of some of these films (For example, Anne of Green Gables starring Canadian Megan Follows). I did not check if I hadn't seen these exact versions. The George Elliott films come in a bundle of five DVDs. My son bought them for me for Mother's Day - a lovely gift.
I didn't realise there were Period Dramas I haven't seen. Can't wait for the return of The Tudors - 21st August!
I have seen 30 of these BBC produced films. What can I say I love period dramas! If it was not for Netflix and Masterpiece Theatre we would miss out on some wonderful film productions.
Seen 19 and would love to see all of them. My fave is P&P (with Colin Firth) and Little Dorrit. So divine.
I'm surprised by how many on this list I have seen!! I should have taken note of the one's I have not and look for those at my library!
At the moment my favorites are the 1995 P&P and North and South, with 1995 Persuasion and Little Dorrit close seconds...
Interesting poll, thanks for sharing!
Persuasion 2007 is an ITV production, not BBC.
I have seen the majority of them, have a huge collection of BBC work. My favourites are Pride and Prejudice (1995 Colin Firth, Jennifer Ehle), and North and South.
I'd love to see them all! In good time....My current favorite is North and South
Who do I complain to that "Lark Rise to Candleford" needs to be shown on PBS in the US? I loved the book, and know some episodes are on YouTube, but I want to see it all in one piece on PBS. It's got nothing but raves from the UK.
