The DVD for "Jake's Progress" has been cut by the BBFC. One of the episodes shows a child wrapping a cord around their neck. The BBFC demanded 7 seconds of cuts to the scene but the distributor chose to make additional cuts making a total of 35 seconds to achieve a '15' certificate. The DVD version is packaged as eight episodes of 52 minutes, rather than six episodes which were longer and of unequal length, as in the original TV transmission. See more »
This is one of the best mini-series I have ever seen. Dark, funny, sexy, disturbing... you name it, it is here. The actors were superb! Especially Barclay Wright, who plays Jake... Haley Joel Osment(The Sixth Sense) is good, but... Barclay Wright is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated young actors ever. The plot twists and suspense in this mini-series were almost more than I could stand, having to wait each week for the next episode. And although I was sorry to see the series end, what an ending! So shocking and yet so PERFECT! If you see this series in your TV listings, program the VCR! It is definitely worth it.
