"NORTH AND SOUTH" (2004) Review

If someone had told me years hace that I would find myself watching the 2004 BBC televisión adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s 1855 novel, let alone purchase a DVD copy of the miniseries, I would have dismissed that person’s notion as inconceivable.

The song "Pick-Up"" was the centrepiece of a cabaret mostrar called KinoTata, put on por Martin Duncan, Protheroe's lyrical collaborator.
