One of the finest productions ever on TV
29 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Of course you can tell that I like An Englishman's Castle. Although it was 30 years ago when I saw it for the first and last time, I remember clearly how the story evolved into a story not about 1940 nor even about 1978 in England but more it became a study of how people are ruled, and how they rebel, and how they live and how they love. Intertwined with all of this is a study of how censorship is really conducted in the modern world of media. Since it was aired on PBS (WNET) in New York it achieved an almost eerie obscurity which I've always felt had to do with how on-the-money were its views of censorship. Its obscurity is a testimony to the truth that was written into every aspect of this wonderful production.
