Set in the early 1840s, this is the original four part BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's classic novel. Cranford is set in the early 1840s in a fictional market town in northwest England. The story centers on the town's predominantly single and widowed middle-class female inhabitants, who are comfortable with their traditional way of life and adhere to a complex set of social rules. However, the impending arrival of the railway puts Cranford on the cusp of upsetting social changes and the genteel ladies of the town struggle to face an uncertain future with dignity and 19th century decorum.

Very funny, gentle satire. According to the cover and the information in the catalog, this is the "original 1972" version. The 2013 date refers to the date this version was released on DVD.

No star rating as I have not watched this 2013 version but note, it is NOT the 'original' Cranford! tHE 2008 VERSION IS!
THIS 2013 VERSION HAS NONE OF THE ORIGINAL CAST, DIFFERENT WRITER, PRODUCERS AND DIRECTOR. tHE 2008 WAS 5 STARS IN MY BOOK. SIMPLY BE AWARE THAT THIS VERSION IS LIKELY NOWHERE AS ACCOMPLISHED AS THE 2008 TRUE 'ORIGINAL'.
