Watch Cider with Rosie - Alternative Versions.
A truly magical production, enjoyed all the more for not being
encumbered with an all-star cast (although Samantha Morton was rather
wonderful as the author's mother, Annie, and Timothy Spall rolled his
'r's in an authentic Gloucestershire accent, narrating with excerpts
taken directly from the book as the author himself).
The film was dotted with cameos, perhaps most notably Annette Crosbie
as Granny Trill, and there are lots of recognizable faces, but the
whole cast performed their tasks in an understated and businesslike
fashion-a large cast, as the film dips in and out of different periods
of the author's early life in a seemingly random fashion, reminiscent
of the book upon which it was based.
Quite how the production team managed to return Slad (the actual
village where Lee grew up) to its pre-war look, I have no idea, but it
worked beautifully, and the English countryside never looked more
alluring. When Lee published Cider With Rosie in 1959, he acknowledged
that this world had already passed us by forever, so to re-create it
for a Sunday night TV drama was no mean feat...
The costumes were right, the language was right-even the slang, and

Cider With Rosie used to be part of every English schoolboy's literary
canon, but has recently fallen out of favour. I hope there were enough
English Literature teachers watching who remember how good & enjoyable
a work this is, and will start setting it again as a required text. I
know this was part of a short season of BBC modern literary
dramatizations, but I hope that in this case, the BBC might consider
commissioning an adaptation of the sequel, 'As I Stepped Out One
Midsummer's Morning', which has been woefully neglected over the
All in all, a marvellous production, not to be missed-it has, in one
stroke, re-established my faith in BBC drama... For those of you yet to
see it-I'm jealous!..
