Why was it cancelled?
30 December 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I saw the trailer for this programme I immediately told my wife. I knew it was going to be tremendous. And so it proved.

Strong characters brilliantly portrayed. It did have echoes of To Kill a Mockingbird with its story line of unreasoning prejudice coupled with courage, integrity and honour.

It was slow: its script and acting to be savoured like good wine or whisky. It was easy to become involved with the main characters as they found themselves facing deeply challenging issues of racial prejudice and ignorance. American TV at its very best. We missed the final part due to some confused scheduling by Channel 4.

It is impossible to obtain on DVD and does not seem likely of a repeat showing in the UK.

I never did find out why it was cancelled: unpopular, too sensitive a subject?
