I saw this film when it first appeared on BBC TV years ago. I loved it then and still think it's better than the film remake.
I'm a new man so I needed plenty of hankies. I defy anyone not to be moved by this great production.

The film is superb, the acting is excellent. Joss AAckland and Claire Bloom give the perfect portrayal of the intellectuals involved finding love most unexpectedly but with a tragic outcome. It is beautifully shot, using the Oxford city centre and surrounding countryside.

A man and a woman - their love and pain, life and death, faith and despair. This BBC original drama easily remains the best version of this agonising tale about the spiritual crisis of C. S. Lewis when his wife died from cancer. The love, grief, pain and sorrow so shattering to Lewis that his basic Christian beliefs, magnificently communicated in his many books, were called into serious doubt. But he picked up the pieces and moved out of the depressing "shadowlands," realising that "real life has not even begun yet." The BBC's best ever drama, it won over a dozen prestigious awards including the International Emmy for Best Drama and two British Academy Awards.
"Kaleidoscope" magazine described it thus at the time: "It explores the deepest spiritual values. It is about love and death in a very real way... I found it completely compelling... so different, about the kind of things television drama doesn't usually dramatise. It's immensely harrowing ...but in the end it's immensely uplifting."
