My sisters and I love this mini-series and can't find the episodes anywhere!
We introduced them to friends when they were aired on A&E. They are well crafted and faithful to the short stories. I have read that the BBC "lost" them. How the BBC could have lost or destroyed them, I'll never understand.
These should be available as a box set! Shame on the BBC for their negligence. Things that were in the dramatization that you don't get in Kipling's text were wonderfully depicted here-- the costuming, the art direction, set dressing, proper British pronunciation for us poor Americans.
Plus the singing. Yes, there are songs in the text but, my sisters and I can sing "Arrah, Patsy!" thanks only to the show. If anyone has information on obtaining them, please let me know.
