Reviews

Andrea Newman's controversial series explores the tangled sexual and emotional relationships of a middle-class family as it is torn apart by a father's obsessive love for his own daughter. Peter Manson and his wife, Cassie, appear to enjoy the perfect marriage. But their manipulative daughter Prue's marriage to her American boyfriend, Gavin by whom she becomes pregnant proves the catalyst to the family's dramatic disintegration, as Gavin intrudes further and Peter can no longer contain his jealous feelings for Prue. Cassie, in search of emotional fulfi lment, throws herself into a series of passionate affairs and one of her lovers is Gavin... Bouquet of Barbed Wire is a powerful study in the fragility of family unity and the destructive consequences of forbidden desire. Featuring spellbinding performances from Frank Finlay, Sheila Allen and Susan Penhaligon, this series was hugely popular with both the viewing public and critics. Even without the attention of the tabloid press an inevitable consequence of its many risqué scenes and its unflinching portrayal of a father's incestuous desires Bouquet of Barbed Wire was one of the most celebrated, and controversial, British television dramas ever made.

Just as good as I remembered it from it's original showing on TV. And so much better than the recently updated version. The characters are subtlely portrayed and it holds your attention throughout. I am so glad that I went back to this version.

I thought that I might be disappointed after all these years but I wasn't. It was as fresh as the first showing. The acting is superb. I must say that Pru comes across as a very spoiled and manipulative daughter - much more than I remember, but it was so good to enjoy the series again. I have watched it twice already!

I thought this was just top notch and watched it right through twice - a scene a night over a few weeks. It really brought home the differences between the 1970s and the present day too. The music between the scenes is both haunting and hypnotic! I can honestly say I enjoyed watching it more now than I did in the 70s (I was a much younger person then of course!). Would recommend to anyone who enjoyed it in the 70s - acting may seem 'wooden' to some compared to today's dramas, but definitely not to me.

Superb rating.
Cannot find a simple thing wrong, such a practical Father/Daughter relationship gone awry, geogaphy completely right, suitable for all people who like drama ex TV.

This is a very entertaining DVD, which is well acted and faithful to Newman's original novel, unlike the recent re-make. I would recommend it for anyone who wishes to see the original.

My recollections of this in my teens were brought back to life on DVD - Andrea new mans paperbacks sat with Margaret Drabble on my teen bookshelf and a share of the world remains the first adult book at age 14 dealing with the affairs of the heart as I thought if them at that time.. FF was a handsome guy in his youth so press play and enjoy.

Something prompted me to research availability of this TV series on DVD. I had seen the series on TV when first shown and wanted to see it again.
