A wonderful story
20 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just a bit more trivia about this wonderful story.

It was shown just before Xmas one year and then was replayed the next Xmas, and the TV series followed a few months later.

The great Melvyn Douglas had a role in the back-story. He plays the present-day Clement Sturgess, the character who is a small boy during the days of the Boer War and is enamored of his gregarious Uncle Edgar, played by Gordon Pinsent. Uncle Edgar helps young Clement learn how to appreciate his emotionally-distant father.

I believe that Gordon Pinsent also wrote and sang the theme song.

I would love to find this on DVD.
