This has just become available on DVD for a very modest price in the UK andI would highly recommend it to all those who love "Family Sagas". There is asequel "Hold the Dream" but it is useless to watch this if you haven't firstwatched "A Woman of Substance". The whole show, almost ten hours viewing ...
"Woman of Substance" began as a hugely successful novel by BarbaraTaylor Bradford and"successful" does not simply refer to itspopularity. Bradford writes knowingly and convincingly about England'smost difficult historical period: the 20th Century. Beginning in thethen present of 1974,Bradford tells ...
The story follows the life of Emma Harte and her rise from a servant girltothe owner of a large empire of her own creation. The movie begins in the1980's, but the bulk is Emma's recollection of her life from the age of 14on (1900's-1940's.) Jenny Seagrove does a magnificent job portrayingyoungEmma...
As "chick" movies go, this is tops. The performances are very touching,giving life to many of the characters. Jenny Seagrove absolutely shines asEmma; with all the foolish mistakes she makes, you still root for her. PeterChelsom gives a completely heartbreaking performance as the sheltered andconfus...

Anyone who has readthe book will only be more enchanted after they see the film. First,Jenny Seagrove has be on...
Engrossing saga of a determined woman's climb to the pinnacle ofsuccess. Usually having two actresses share a lead minimizes the impactof that role but the excellent match up of Jenny Seagrove and the greatDeborah Kerr avoids that here since they share more than a passingresemblance. Both give stron...
I regard this series as one of the best drama and romantic English tv-seriesever to be done.It contains drama, fighting spirit, sadness, happiness andmisfortune.So if you haven't seen this series, DO IT NOW. it's worthit....

I am a huge movie buff, and Women of Substance is my all time favorite.I taped it originally as a mini series- have both the VHS and DVDversions. I watch it in its entirety at least twice a year (justwatched a few weeks ago). Jenny Seagrove and Liam N's acting are great.I especially like Jenny's cha...
I enjoyed this series from beginning to end. Jenny Seagrove wasfantasticas the young Emma Harte. Deborah Kerr was magnificent as the older EmmaHarte. It was wonderful seeing her again. Liam Neeson was great asBlackie.This is the story of the fictional Emma Harte, a Yorkshire girl whoworksher way...

Having first seen this mini series when it originally aired I purchased myown copy and watch it over and over.

Whenever my sister and I get in the mood for a mini-series marathon, we rent"The Thorn Birds", but only if our all-time fave is checked out. I refer, ofcourse, to BTB's "A Woman of Substance". This mini-series boasts a stellarcast- Deborah Kerr, Liam Neeson, Jenny Seagrove, Barry Bostwick, and a you...
Spoilers herein.Most people don't need much to justify their time in front of a screen. Forthem, this has two elements as an excuse: pretty good and convincing sets (except the war)and the remarkable face of Jenny Seagrove. Jenny isn't quite up to making her rolebelievable in the large: what with se...
A very good and entertaining story. Great performances by Jenny Seagroveand Deborah Kerr.I must, however, remain skeptical of how such things could take place inconservative Victorian Britain. After all, in more liberal U.S. thewomen'slib movement didn't come until the 1960s and 1970s...
I've just watched this unmitigated load of rubbish. It was simplypainful!It saddens me to see good actors will seemingly do "anything"for money. I'm a miniseries junkie, a period drama addict and a softtouch for sagas-but this effort made me sigh with relief as the finalcredits rolled. The story is ...
