I wasn’t the biggest of of fans of last weeks episode To Have and To Hold but I was really looking forward to this weeks episode staring Zoe Wanamaker, Noel Clarke and Kenneth Cranham.
A film based on the struggles of the female Ford workers in 1968 where they went on strike for equal pay and through their struggles the 1970 Equal Pay Act came about.
Starring SallyHawkins, Miranda Richardson, Andrea Riseborough as well as Bob Hoskins, Rupert Graves and Kenneth Cranham the film showed not only the strength of the women involved to fight for what is right but also the struggles that inevitably all strikes will bring about as well as how different the women were treated in their strike action then men would have been.
Another BBC adaptation of a classic to feast our eyes on already in 2016. A all star cast leads one beautiful show.
I have never read “War and Peace” and have no real idea whether I’ll like it or not but the trailers caught my attention so here I am.
