Three adaptations of Elizabeth Gaskell's best loved novels!


This witty and poignant story, starring the Oscar-winning Judi Dench, follows the small absurdities and major tragedies in the lives of the people of Cranford. Three Gaskell novels (Cranford, My Lady Ludlow, Mr. Harrison's Confessions) have been woven together to create this uniquely rich and comic drama about ordinary human lives during one extraordinary year.

North & South

Elizabeth Gaskell's feisty and passionate love story set in the changing world of Victorian industrial society. Margaret Hale is one of literature's most original heroines: a well-bred southerner from a country vicarage newly settled in the industrial northern town of Milton. In the shock of her move, she misjudges charismatic cotton mill-owner John Thornton, whose strength of purpose and passion are a match for her own pride and willfulness.

Wives And Daughters

An inspired adaptation by Andrew Davies of Mrs. Gaskell's final novel, widely lauded as her masterpiece. Focusing on the fortunes of three families - the Gibsons, the Hamleys and the Cumnors - in the English village of Hollingford, Wives and Daughters is at once a poignant coming of age story, a lively romance and, not least, a witty comedy of manners.
