Love In A Cold Climate (ITV 1980, Judi Dench, Michael Williams)

Period drama serial Love In A Cold Climate was based on the lives of the Mitford girls during the 1920’s and 1930’s including their unwise friendship with Adolf Hitler during his early years in power.

As befitting the high profile nature of the series it was given a TV Times cover and two major features. One was written by one of the Mitford sisters, Diana (who had gained even more infamy for herself by marrying British fascist Oswald Mosley in 1936). Mosley himself, living in exile in France, died on 3 December 1980 whilst the series was on air. The other focused on the cars, mostly 1920’s Daimler’s, used on the production.

Writer Simon Raven had previously adapted the super popular Edward and Mrs Simpson for ITV in 1977. The BBC mounted an equally high profile version in 2001.
