All eight episodes of the much-loved BBC mini-series adapted from the best-selling book by James Fenimore Cooper. Set in upstate New York during Britain's so-called French and Indian War in 1757, the series follows the heroic adventures of Natty 'Hawkeye' Bumppo (Kenneth Ives) and his Indian companions Chingachgook (John Abineri) and Uncas (Richard Warwick), Chingachgook's son and the true last of the Mohican tribe.

Not that there aren't failings: the difference between the location filming in 16mm and the tape for the studio scenes is very noticeable, the French forces besieging Fort William Henry don't exactly fill the screen (there's a very sad shot of a single cannon in a field), the stuntwork often feels a bit polite and overly cautious and, unsurprisingly for the day, Mohicans and Hurons alike are played by white actors 'browned' up with coffee beans. Yet if you're willing to give it time and aren't expecting a lightning pace, it still works surprisingly well, and in Philip Madoc's vengeful Magua it offers one of 70s TV's best villains.
While Acorn's DVD includes all the original episodes in their 45-minute versions (the show was re-edited to 13 half-hour parts for the US), the original masters were destroyed by the BBC long ago, so the quality is acceptable but not as good as on many of the BBC's own remastered titles.
The story vaguely resembled the original book, but not so you would notice. No use of native american actors in the lead red indian roles - but lots of fake tan. This is nothing like the more recent screen adaptation of this classic novel. It does however, portray more truly the love interest of Uncas and Cora - rather than Hawkeye and Cora - as in the recent screen adaptation - which is refreshing. Don't expect lots of realistic fight scenes/locations (think it was filmed in Scotland), but then it was probably filmed on a very low budget, and probably aimed at a rather more innocent audience, not yet into the flashy/violent television of the current day.
Very much for those wanting to revisit fond memories of watching Sunday night television in their youth.

Nothing wrong with the product. It worked fine and turned up early. Had fond memories of watching this in my childhood but does seem pretty dated now. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Tim Shaw
