TV Long Song, The (BBC-1 18 Dec 2018, Tamara Lawrence, Hayley Atwell) Published 5 months ago on December 7, 2018 Three part drama The Long Song is set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica and adapted from the award-winning novel by Andrea Levy, The Long Song follows the trials, tribulations and survival of a wily, strong-willed slave July (Tamara Lawrance) on a plantation owned by her odious mistress Caroline Mortimer (Hayley Atwell). July is born to a field slave Kitty (Sharon Duncan-Brewster) at the Amity sugar cane plantation, run by John Howarth (Leo Bill) and his younger sister Caroline. On a spoilt whim, Caroline decides she wants to train the adorable July as her personal maid. So, as a young girl, July is taken from her mother and forced to live in the great house. As July grows up and becomes a teenager, she learns how to ‘handle’ her mistress with her own small victories along the way. The Christmas riots and the abolition of slavery turn the world of Amity upside down and throw July’s destiny into question. But when order is restored and a new overseer Robert Goodwin (Jack Lowden) arrives at Amity, July and Caroline are both intrigued by his seemingly revolutionary plans to improve the plantation. Could his ideals change everything? production details UK | BBC One | 3×60 minutes | Broadcast 18-20 December 2018 at 9.00pm cast Tamara Lawrence as July Hayley Atwell as Caroline Mortimer Sharon Duncan-Brewster as Kitty Leo Bill as John Howarth Jack Lowden as Robert Goodwin Lenny Henry as Godfrey Doña Croll as Old July Ayesha Antoine as Molly Arinzé Kene as Thomas Ansu Kabia as James Richards Jordan Bolger as Nimrod Joy Richardson as Miss Rose Madeleine Mantock as Miss Clara BBCFeaturedHayley AtwellJack LowdenLenny HenryPeriod dramaSharon Duncan-BrewsterTamara Lawrence Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV24 hours ago This Is Personal: The Hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper (ITV 2000, Alun Armstrong, Richard Ridings) Period crime drama serial.
