  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Forsyte Saga by Spursfan on 6 March 2010 11:04am
One of the presents I asked Santa for (and got) was the boxed set of the original (in b & w!!) Forsyte Saga - starring Eric Porter and Nyree Dawn Porter (no relation if I remember correctly). It was first shown in the late 196o's and I can remember refusing dates because it was on!!

It has taken me until yesterday to watch it (as I'm always on the computer!!) but I watched the first episode yesterday. It was great!

Don't know how many episodes there are but there are about 8 DVDs I think, and if they are the same as the first one there are 4 episodes on each, thus making 32 episodes.

Anyone else remember this series (not the remake they made a few years ago)?

I remember it Spursfan! It was shown on RTE in the later afternoon. My mom never missed it. In fact the local library has it on video. Another all time fav of mine, because he was only gorgeous, Poldark. I bought the DVDs a year ago. Watched the whole series. Enjoy the Forsyte Saga!!!

One of my friends was a script girl for a day on that show! She was taking an advanced degree and spent a semester in the UK and Europe learning about broadcasting over there.
I miss black and white shows. Don't know why.
