North and South

Politics meets passion in Elizabeth Gaskell's tale of love across the social divide.

Elizabeth Gaskell's tale of love across the social divide is brought to life in Sandy Welch's four-part adaptation. When Margaret Hale exchanges her rural life for a northern mill town, she witnesses first hand the poverty of the working classes. She also meets mill-owner John Thornton, who she initially despises, while he finds her wilful and proud.
