Excellent miniseries
4 June 2006 | by suebee402See all my reviews

I saw this miniseries on my local PBS station back in 1985. I thought it was excellent. To my knowledge, it has never been shown again. I accidentally taped over it, much to my dismay. I have searched and searched for a copy with no luck. After all these years I still have not forgotten it. It was suspenseful, intriguing, and kept me on the edge of my seat from one week to the next throughout the five or six episodes. The acting was great. I think it would still be a miniseries that would be appreciated now, twenty plus years later. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions about obtaining a copy of this series, please post a message. Thanks.
