"BLANCHE FURY" (1948) Review

I suspect that many mashabiki of costume dramas would be fascinated to know about the series of period dramas released kwa the British film industry during the post-World War II era. A good number of those films were released kwa a British film studio known as Gainsborough Pictures. But not all of them were released through this particular studio. Some were released through other studios au production companies . . . like the 1948 period drama, "BLANCHE FURY".

"THE MISSISSIPPI GAMBLER" (1953) Review

Tyrone Power's career took a strange turn during the post-World War II years.

RELEASE OF OLD BBC PRODUCTIONS

Since the release of the 1975 miniseries "NORTH AND SOUTH" in 2013, I have found myself wondering about other BBC productions from the 1960s and 1970s.

I recently discovered that the 1996 miniseries, "THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL" was the sekunde adaptation of Anne Brontë's novel. The first was a 1968 miniseries that starred Janet Munro, Bryan Marshall and Corin Redgrave. I also discovered that the 1999 miniseries, "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS", was not the first adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel. The BBC aired an earlier adaptation in 1971 that starred Zhivila Roche.

Does anyone know how to contact the BBC? I would like them to consider releasing these two productions in the near future.
