I heartily concur. I remember the 1982 production well and wish it were available to show to my grand children and to recommend to the many people who love Potter's little books and charming characters. "The Tale of Beatrix Potter" is a welcome addition to the books about her life. After seeing the 2006 film which I did enjoy, I was reminded of the 1982 TV film, and I called a friend who has a long-standing habit of recording everything on PBS, but he had missed the BBC Tale of B. P. I was so disappointed. This current film in theaters is well-done and I recommend it, but the 1982 film spent a bit of time on the tragedy of Potter's scientific papers and drawings being rejected because they were done by a WOMAN. I wonder why that was skipped over in the Zelweiger film. Please, whoever is in charge, please release a DVD. JM
