Product Description

Albert Finney stars as the eponymous loveable rogue in these nostalgic tales set in the rural heart of England at the turn of the last century. Adapting H.E. Bates' semi-autobiographical short stories, My Uncle Silas charts the coming of age of a young boy, Edward, as he spends two long, hot summers with his great uncle in the village of Souldrop. While Silas instructs his nephew in the ways of country life he finds plenty of time away from the beady eye of housekeeper Mrs Betts to indulge in his two great loves, women and home-made wine - the combination of which constantly lands him in hot water.

Co-starring Sue Johnston, this set comprises both series and features guest appearances from Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Linda Bellingham, Annabelle Apsion and, in his last television role, Bryan Pringle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 25 Nov 2012
By Pete
Just watching this (first three episodes) and they're great. Albert Finney is just perfectly cast as Silas and the whole show exudes a pastoral warmth that just takes you somewhere really nice, but also a somewhere that makes you think too (stories with heart and stories with brains). I bought my edition from the US but it's great to see it's out in the UK at last. It deserves to be much more widely known.
