| An episodic view of Lady Churchill.
Upon watching the first few scenes of the young Jennie, I could see that it had the usual flair and production of most BBC biopics. This was a first rate production of Lady Randolph Churchill. Lee Remick glows in the role, if being a bit too old for the role, she plays the young Jennie quite well. Ronald Pickup is just slightly older than his character Lord Randolph at first. But it made up to look far older than he should at the end. It skips over a lot of history, and moves quite rapidly, jumping 15 years from one scene to the other toward the end of Randolph's life. Seemingly, as played by Remick, Jennie was self-important and had few maternal feelings. As shown, she had a sense of duty, that speaks for her greatly. Rachel Kempson adds fine support as Duchess of Marlborough. The drama speeds up and gets infinitely more interesting after episode 4. This is a finely produced drama and holds up to the present day.
