RELEASE OF OLD BBC PRODUCTIONS
Since the release of the 1975 miniseries "NORTH AND SOUTH" in 2013, I have found myself wondering about other BBC productions from the 1960s and 1970s.
I recently discovered that the 1996 miniseries, "THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL" was the saat adaptation of Anne Brontë's novel. The first was a 1968 miniseries that starred Janet Munro, Bryan Marshall and Corin Redgrave. I also discovered that the 1999 miniseries, "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS", was not the first adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel. The BBC aired an earlier adaptation in 1971 that starred Zhivila Roche.
Does anyone know how to contact the BBC? I would like them to consider releasing these two productions in the near future.
