Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders, The (ITV 1996, Alex Kingston, Daniel Craig)

Period drama serial telling the life and hard times of ambitious ‘hard-working’ (all be it on her back) lass Moll Flanders in the 17th Century. The publicity for the serial seemed obsessed with the fact that the production contained 17 sex scenes but the serial was well made and was actually pretty good.

Also in 1996 there was an American film version starring Robin Wright and there was also a BBC2 serial version in 1975 with Julia Foster in the title role, the serial also featured Ian Olgilvy and Kenneth Haigh.
