Winifred Holtby's South Riding is one of my favourite novels. It had totally passed me by that there was a TV serialisation (Yorkshire Television, adapted by Stan Barstow) of it in 1974. I don't blame myself for missing it at the time as I was only two but how have I failed to notice such a thing existed and that South Riding is available on DVD?
Have any of you seen it? Does it do the book justice? Is it terribly dated? Do I take the plunge a buy a copy or will I be terribly disappointed? Decisions, decisions.
