I found a DVD version?
21 October 2019 | by szarychSee all my reviews

I know many people are looking for a copy of this miniseries. I saw this when it originally aired in 1987! It's a beautiful love story. I found a link to a DVD of the series. I can't vouch for the quality or the seller, as I have never used them. Oldies dot com has it offered it for sale.
