  1. Thank you for listing all these wonderful films.
    I appreciate all the effort put into such a list.
    Now to make popcorn and watch a few...cheers~

  2. You're welcome! Hope you enjoy whichever ones you decide to watch!

  3. Great job! off to the library website to start requesting...

  4. Loooove The Way We Live Now, Wives and Daughters and The Importance of Being Earnest.

    Really want to see The Governess, The Moonstone, The Ruby and the Smoke, The Secret Life of Mrs. Beeton, and Under the Greenwood Tree. Have you seen any of these Cheryl? Are they good?

  5. @tyme_4_tAh, I have such fond memories of discovering such great dramas at the library when Blockbuster failed me! Good luck at tracking them down!

  6. @Jenny AllworthyJenny, surprised you haven't seen Greenwood Tree already? It's a sweet one and my favourite Hardy adaptation since it stands out as the only one that isn't depressing! I've not seen the others but I glanced at Moonstone and Ruby and the Smoke when they were on TVO but they didn't hold my interest at the time even though I liked the actors in them. I'm most curious about Mrs. Beeton I think. JJ Feild is in that as well as Ruby and Smoke!
    I think back to a few years ago when I was seeking new dramas to watch and now I don't have the time to enjoy the many that are out there and on public tv!

  7. "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS" is set during the pre-Victorian era.
