Fancy Remembering That [Jan. 12th, 2017|09:55 am]
Tony Grist
I dreamed I was in a class that was learning about the Duke of Marlborough. The lecturer ran out of things to say and the silence was embarrassing us all so I piped up and said, "40 years ago the BBC aired a drama series abut the Duke starring John Neville and Susan Hampshire." The odd thing is I was quite right.

In my experience it's unusual to be able to access one's memory banks in a dream and come up with that sort of accurate information- complete with names and approximate dates.

The series was called The First Churchills. It aired in 1969 and was the first programme to feature on Masterpiece Theatre- PBS' long-running showcase for British costume drama.

I watched the First Churchills - I remember it quite well. Actually, i watched it on HBO, and I watched it because I'd seen Susan Hampshire in the never ending Forstye Saga. Which *they* remade and I didn't care for the remake at all.

I loved the original Forsyte Saga. It was ground-breaking. There'd never been anything like it before.

I didn't bother with the remake.

My chief memory of The First Churchill's is Margaret Tyzack's immensely sympathetic turn as Queen Anne.

I loved the original Forsyte Saga too - in fact, I read the books, or most of them, after the series ended. I watched the remake toward the beginning because i wanted to see Ioan Gruffudd as Bosinney. He is quite easy on the eye, but the remake was..well, not great.

Margaret Tyzack was fabulous! I loved that series. I might have even learned some real history from it. Maybe.
