A fondly remembered studio-based drama, and an example of the sort of superb production that was regularly transmitted by BBC Television. 

When actress Georgia Brown complained to the BBC about the lack of meaningful roles for women in television drama their response was to tell her to go and find a series she would like to be in. Along with script editor Midge Mackenzie she discussed the possibility of doing a drama series based on the true story of the women's suffragette movement at the turn of the century. Reflecting the determination that would be illustrated by the women in the drama series, Brown then cornered high-profile producer Verity Lambert at an awards ceremony and together the trio of Brown, Mackenzie and Lambert were given the green light by BBC bosses and 'Shoulder to Shoulder,' the first realistic and non-condescending drama series to portray the movement aimed at winning the right to vote for women in Britain, was born. 

However, according to Brown, even some 60 years after the suffragette's were successful, there were still prejudices to overcome. Ideally, Brown and Mackenzie would have preferred the series to be written by women. But when they failed to secure anyone suitable, it was male writers they had to turn to. Each script was totally scrutinised and out went many popular held misconceptions, innuendos and untruths that Brown referred to as 'the male point of view'. 

What was left was a powerful drama that depicted the intolerance and hardship that the women had to endure to make themselves heard above a prejudiced society. Harrowing scenes of brutality by the powers that be were starkly portrayed -such as Lady Constance Lytton being held down by prison warders as she is force fed by doctors shoving a tube down her throat to pump food into her. Women being beaten by the police, arrested en masse and publicly ridiculed led their originally peaceful protestations to take on new tactics as they took to smashing windows, defacing a nude Venus in the National Gallery and -in the case of Emily Wilding Davison, making the ultimate sacrifice by flinging herself in front of the King's horse at Epsom racetrack and dying from her injuries. 

But the series also managed to cut a fine balance by also showing the private lives and the petty prejudices of the women involved, whilst acknowledging the brilliant speeches made and the unfailing courage that these women had. As Midge Mackenzie told 'TV Week,' "They were very gutsy ladies who were treated with enormous brutality and who have been blatantly ignored by historians. I find it hard to understand why I wasn't taught about this at school. The issues of the vote united women in a way that no issue had ever done before and is likely to again." 

The key players in the true-life (and televisual) drama are Emmeline Pankhurst, who forms the Women's Social and Political Union, the driving power behind the women's movement. Portrayed by Sian Phillips she is shown as a sensitive, caring, charismatic woman who was also responsible for an increasing militancy in the campaign, prompted by an occasion in 1905 when her daughter Christabel (Patricia Quinn), was ejected from a Liberal meeting in Manchester and then arrested and imprisoned for assaulting the police because she had dared ask the meeting about votes for women. Christabel, a trained lawyer eventually had to help the fight from exile in Paris. 
Sylvia Pankhurst (Angela Down), the middle daughter, who doesn't feel as though working women should have any part in their movement. She organises the women of London's East End as a way of leading them out of poverty. Annie Kenney (Georgia Brown), a mill worker who joins the cause and eventually becomes a dynamic speaker for the movement. 

'Shoulder to Shoulder' was shown on BBCTV in 1974, and also had an impressive supporting male cast including Michael Gough as Emmeline's husband, Dr Richard Pankhurst, Fulton MacKay as Keir Hardie, Robert Hardy as Asquith and an early role for Bob Hoskins as Jack Dunn. 

Sadly neglected by most television historians, books and websites, 'Shoulder to Shoulder' was a stirring piece of British televisual drama that portrayed one of the most important movements in the history of civil rights, and is therefore more than deserving of its place in Television Heaven.

In this TV adaptation of the Harold Pinter classic, a seedy poet (Gielgud) shows up at the home of a rich writer (Richardson) and they start reminiscing about the "past." 

A seedy ostensible poet, Spooner, visits the home of his wealthy and successful counterpart, Hirst. Their conversation suggests that they have come there after meeting in a pub.

Lucky Jim DVD - Stephen Tompkinson

In stock
can be shipped within 3 days

£9.99
Price includes VAT, plus delivery


A rollicking adaptation of Kingsley Amis's first novel, Lucky Jim stars Stephen Tompkinson as Jim Dixon, a luckless lecturer at a provincial British university, trying to make a splash with his pompous boss, Professor Neddy Welch. Jim is also trying to make it with the woman of his dreams, Christine Callaghan, while simultaneously being pursued by the woman of his nightmares, fellow lecturer Margaret Peel. 

One (of many) complications is that Christine is the girlfriend of Professor Welch's egotistical artist son, Bertrand. Another is that Margaret keeps attempting suicide to get Jim's attention. But despite his misadventures, Jim keeps his eyes on the prize: a leg up on the ladder to a professorship in medieval history. 

Published in 1954, Lucky Jim had something never before seen in fiction: a working-class hero, well educated but unabashedly middlebrow. Amis's innovation came as a breath of fresh air to a literary scene subdued by philosophical protagonists and alienated artists. This satiric and farcical story leads merrily through scenes of virtuoso comic catastrophe.

The Ginger Tree - Part One

Mary MacKenzie embarks on a dangerous journey to Manchuria in 1903 for her wedding to Richard Collingworth in Russian-occupied Mukden. When the Russo-Japanese war breaks out Richard finds himself under siege in Port Arthur. Her marriage and subsequent life, isolated from her family and trapped in a war zone, provokes bitter disappointment and disillusion. While Richard is kept busy, her friendship with the Japanese military attache Count Kentaro Kurihama rapidly develops into a passionate affair. 

The Ginger Tree - Part Two

Disowned and heavily pregnant, Mary arrives at her new home provided by her lover Count Kentaro Kurihama. There she is befriended by Baroness Aiko Onnodera and Alicia Basset-Hill, but is shocked to discover that Kentaro is already married and her official status is that of a concubine. After a difficult confinement Mary learns she can have no more children. 

The Ginger Tree - Part Three

On his father's instructions, Mary's son has been abducted. Determined to find work, Mary embarks on a new career in a Tokyo store, updating the shop's range of Western ladies' fashions. She is taken aback when a new customer calls to arrange a new wardrobe for her husband's posting to England - the Countess Kurihama. Meanwhile, still grieving for the loss of her child, Mary determines to confront Kentaro to keep alive a chance of finding her son. 

The Ginger Tree - Part Four

It is now 1935, and, although resigned to never finding her son, Mary has remained in Japan and become a wealthy and successful businesswoman. Despite the worsening political situation in Asia she refuses to leave because of her continuing involvement with Kentaro, who finds himself more isolated as the war party grows in power in Japan and survives an assassination attempt. Mary finds herself treated with mounting hostility and her position as a foreigner growing increasingly difficult.

A fondly remembered studio-based drama, and an example of the sort of superb production that was regularly transmitted by BBC Television. 

An Englishman's Castle is a BBC television serial first broadcast in 1978, written by Philip Mackie. The story was set in an alternate history 1970s, in which Nazi Germany won World War II and occupies England. Peter Ingram (Kenneth More) is a writer for a soap opera (also called An Englishman's Castle), which is set in London during The Blitz and subsequent Nazi occupation. 

He is oblivious to Nazi rule, which is hidden behind a facade of seemingly normal English daily life. As is mentioned in historical references, the occupation was followed by several years of guerrilla warfare, which culminated in an amnesty that enabled the resisters to resume normal daily life in return for accepting the reality of German occupation - which they generally did, feeling that further resistance was futile.
