Powerful, historical mini-series
2 January 2003 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

I saw this series in 1979 when I was 23 and have been looking for it on video for the past 10 years. Have not seen it since and can find no other information on the series except for this website. The music was lovely and I remember the story line was moving. For the memory of a mini-series to last this long, it must have been good.
