| Beatrix Potter - The Tale of - still looking after all these years
This 1982 film generated a lot of interest in Beatrix Potter, the person, for me. While I enjoyed the latest film with no cash spared and beautiful cinematography, it still didn't measure up to this version. Penelope Wilton was magnificent and it covered a wider area of her life on a limited budget. When I visited England some years ago, I made a point of going to her cousin's place in Long Melford, Suffolk, not mentioned in 'Miss Potter'. Also, that film neglected her naturalist work and her later life. I am glad to have found that I am not going crazy and that the film did exist. Of course I knew that but now know that the BBC has done nothing about it since. Like others, I am hoping that one day it will be released on DVD. Let us pray that the BBC has preserved it! I should add that I am not the only one in my family who would love to see it again. My daughter still quotes from it, such as - 'little books for little hands'.
