I absolutely loved the 2004 TV miniseries of North and South - so I ordered this version to compare the differences. This release is definitely not like the 2004 version but is just as good. Having listened to this book on DVD this version follows the book more than the 2004 version -the acting is very good and the story line - but the directing in this version can be a little desired - the 2004 version in the way it is presented is better

I bought North & South because I wanted to see Patrick Stewart in the lead roll. I have the newer version with Richard Armitage and wanted to compare them. I like them both, both bringing the same fire to the character. They are both favorite actors of mine so I would watch any film they are in.
