Sally Ann Howes,
I remember watching this as a child.It was serialised on the BBC.I can remember hiding behind our settee during the scene that contained the mad Mrs Rochester.Although modern dramatisations of the book may be considered to be better produced, I find my mind quickly jumping back to those scary moments all those years ago. I have little recollection of the individual performances of the actors and actresses but the impressive cast list leads me to believe that it must have been an excellent production. Casting the late great Stanley Baker in the role as Mr Rochester might appear to some to have been perhaps a poor decision but in those early days of television fine acting choice must have been limited.Nevertheless, with Stanley Baker, black and white and a wonderful story line such a production would be difficult match even today
