Storyline

The orphan child Heathcliff is taken in by the Earnshaw family. Close to his step-sister Catherine, an obsessive passion forms between the two, but when old Earnshaw dies, Catherine's cruel brother Hindley is the new master and forces Heathcliff into servitude. One of the refined neighbors Edgar Linton calls on Catherine and, attracted by his manners and influence, she agrees to marry him. Heathcliff runs away and returns a wealthy man years later. His re-appearance disrupts the tranquil marriage between Catherine and Edgar, and from there, the story spirals into one of vengeance and tragedy, nearly poisoning the next generation with its after-effects.

Positive memories and request for video/DVD release
20 October 2004 | by lalage sandersSee all my reviews

I remember this as a wonderfully rugged version of the story, very earthy and passionate. It captured the wildness of the moors and the Yorkshire weather in a way that the Olivier version never managed.

McShane was born to play Heathcliff and I am sure set many other teenage hearts pounding as well as mine. Cathy was alternately lyrically beautiful and utterly terrifying.

This hallmark BBC production has a second claim to fame. The terrifying spectre of Cathy at the window inspired Kate Bush to write that song.

I wish someone would bring it out on video. It may not be as good as I recall it, and indeed often older TV productions seem stilted by today's standards- but nonetheless, I am certain it would be worth a second look.
