"Hereward the Wake" 16-episode BBC drama series (1965)

Author: cocidius-36424 from New Zealand
16 June 2015

I clearly remember this series and it was almost compulsory viewing in our house. Such programs tended to have a high interest value and impact on boys of our age at that time. Looking for evidence of the series I couldn't understand why there was no trace of it on YouTube until I found the following note on Wikipedia: "The BBC (1965).....16-episode TV series ........Hereward the Wake, based on Kingsley's novel. Hereward was portrayed by actor Alfred Lynch. NOT ONE EPISODE of this BBC series has survived, according to the archive records." Very sad indeed as the series could now almost be considered a historical record in its right.

Memories of Well Loved Series

Author: sheilannscott from United Kingdom
13 February 2005

This Show left such an impression that even today (2005) whole scenes still come back to me. The Death of Hereward's faithful House Carl The Seduction of Hereward by the use Scorcery Albert Lynch's Face and the sweep of history portrayed within what was a relatively low budget production. This was typical of the BBC Classic Series of the time. The Script and Plot Lines combining to give the viewer a real taste of the Period the drama was set in

Althrough I remember even after all this Time one anomaly

when a Girl says to Hereward " Do you Fancy me"

If a copy of this still exists I urge you to see it

It is well worth it despite it's age
