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.
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
