One of the best shows ever aired by A&E...

This was one of the best shows A&E imported from across the water back in the 80's (along with the BBC version of Last of the Mohicans, Brat Farrar, and Day of the Triffids). Aired in '87, and although it ran to only eight episodes, it got great reviews from TV critics. Sadly A&E only ran it once in prime time, then stuck it in the early Sunday morning slot a few years later. Since it was a short BBC series, and not an adaptation, it's unlikely to be released as has been the case with Roy Clarks other, more popular works. Hell, they're still struggling to release most of Last of the Summer Wine (which started in '73)......
