This is a big, £16million TV mini-series. Has anyone seen it?

 

I know what I think of it, I'd be interested to see what everyone else thinks...

Are you sure about that number?

Seems high for a first commision from Channel 4.

I guess they are hoping for a Downton Abbey type hit.

 

Heres some video's about it:

Does it air here in the U.S.?  BBC-America, possibly?  Haven't heard of it...

I'm fairly sure it was an international coproduction.

 

There are trailers on youtube; let's see if this one works:

Definitely haven't seen that advertised and I watch BBC-A a lot.  Looks interesting, though.

It's not a BBC thing and I think it's a co-production with PBS via something called Masterpiece Theatre.

And yet, the program itself is not listed anywhere on the website.  Strange.  I guess maybe it will show up here sometime later in the year.

Yes Phil I did try to watch most of this super boring programme it was like a throw back to a 1970's BBC type drama ?. It did look like lots of money has been spent on it but why I have no idea and there are another 9 episodes still to come .None of which I will watch .

I looked at all those blown out skies and thought: that'll be Red.

 

And it was.

Blown out skies aside, I thought the trailer looked sort of okay for a digital production, about from the nasty digital looking skin tones at 0:28 and briefly at 0:25. Not changing my life but okay.

 

The night time stuff looked best.
