| The YouTube Version needs a new digital transfer
Beryl Markham was one of the most interesting women of the early 20th century, and deserves a better memorialisation than she has received so far. This Stephanie Powers mini-series was an effort made in the 1980s which is limited by the poor resolution by today's standards in the YouTube version. It was originally shot on 35 mm film, so should receive an HD transfer if it hasn't had one already somewhere. Ideally, her story would be a great subject for an updated treatment, as she was a remarkable woman - way ahead of her time.
