Description
This riveting 1977 adaptation of Charles Dickens'sHard Times (1854) was the novel's first complete dramatization on British television; it later aired on PBS. Set during the Industrial Revolution, the four episodes follow the journey of Louisa Gradgrind (Jacqueline Tong), a circus employee adopted by a stern businessman (Patrick Allen) from a bleak industrial village. Edward Fox appears as the seductive Captain James Harthouse, a Parliamentary candidate visiting Coketown.

"An amazingly steady, focused work that achieves a welcome drumbeat of gravity befitting the original source material. Director John Irvin, working from a judicious adaptation by Arthur Hopcraft, keeps the well-plotted story securely on its tracks.... It conveys, simply and powerfully, all the righteous anger and tender mercies of Dickens' feelings about industry, society, materialism and the right for humans to remain, at heart, optimistic."DVD Talk
