Superlative series on the life of George Sand

Rosemary Harris is nothing short of brilliant in this mini-series on the life of George Sand. George Chakiris plays Chopin and Jeremy Irons appears as Alfred de Musset. Although there are only seven episodes, it is superbly done. It should have been on video years ago but the problem may be that it may have been filmed in black and white (stills never appear in color, even in books totally devoted to color photography) and it may be felt that there is no market, but THERE IS. I encourage the BBC to make this available to us.
