Love For Lydia Coming to Talking Pictures TV

Talking Pictures TV has announced that the archive TV channel will show the 1970s LWT drama serial Love for Lydia.

Based on the 1952 novel by H.E Bates, the 13-part television adaptation was written by Julian Bond. It was produced by London Weekend Television and broadcast in 1977. It featured a cast including Mel Martin, Christopher Blake, Peter Davison, Jeremy Irons and Sherrie Hewson.

“In his teen years, Edward Richardson meets the soon-to-be wealthy Lydia Aspen. She has been brought to live with her aunts and uncle in Evensford after the death of her father. The two begin a romance that swings between love and disillusion, chiefly brought on by their immaturity. The story spans the pre-depression era and after with both tragedy and self-realisation.” Synopsis from Talking Pictures TV
