| Sunday evening fayre from the 1970s
This was the era of good family viewing where historic costume dramas could be full of action but light on controversy. Set in 1846,it is agreeable to look at, with good costumes, interiors and attractive South Coast historic exteriors. Although it has spills it is short on thrills. And conspicuously lacks Poldarks great casting of feisty Angharad Rees and Robin Ellis. The late great Jack Wilde has a rather peripheral role rather than being featured. Also the outline of the story - Britains involvement in the American Civil War - doesn't deliver anything like the interest it promises.

It remains however what it always was: agreeable family Sunday early evening entertainment from a time when Bergerac was adult viewing. A 6.5 out of 10
