News & Interviews for The Long Song: Series 1
A beautiful, moving, horrifying adaptation of her unsimple tale, that honours the source and its subject.
Tamara Lawrance combines fiery spirit and heart-wrenching pathos in the role of July, with Sharon Duncan-Brewster a magnificently indomitable Kitty.
This was a gripping, unflinching and unapologetic redress of the vague popular notion that Britain's eventual role in ending slavery should count for more than the untold misery caused by our enthusiastic participation beforehand.
The Long Song upholds that such moral outrage is not only possible, but imperative. Apologies are in order.
It's worth tuning in for Lawrance alone and the episode teaser promised that the arrival of a new plantation overseer might offer a little more light and shade in the story-telling. The subject deserves it.
Within it, though, are some riveting tangles: all the dispossessions, acquirements and, latterly, invigorating exchanges of postcolonial drama.
BBC1's new drama The Long Song is so finely-tuned and carefully-balanced that it'll break your heart - and make you laugh at the same time.
As stripped back there is actually a pretty great drama here just trying to get out.
