Not a lavish, expensive production like BBC's Pride and Prejudice, but nonetheless still worth watching, partly due to the quality of the acting. Fans of Hardy will appreciate the authenticity. At times a little drawn out, but there are many more excellent moments, especially the dramatic 'Skimmity Ride' scene. All the actors are excellent, but of particular note is Alan Bates, who IS the ill - fated hero, Michael Henchard.
