9/10. In the cold waters of the Solent a brand-new racing yacht is sinking - putting 14 sailors in peril. Director Sarah Welch ; Series producer Annie Heather 46
Behind one of Britain's greatest heroines lies an unexpected story. Laura Fraser, Michael Pennington and Roy Hudd star in this drama based largely on Florence Nightingale's own words. She became famous for her work among the wounded soldiers of the Crimea - yet just who was this Lady with the Lamp and what was it that drove her on?
(Simulcast in HD on the BBC HD channel)
Ode to a Nightingale: page 12
Drama: Florence Nightingale 7.00pm BBC1
Laura Fraser rises above a lumpen script as spirited young Florence, a tough cookie who returns from the Crimean War furious at the ineptitude of Britain's military bosses.
Having seen men die in so-called hospitals foul with disease, she demands to be made head of a Royal Commission looking into the conduct of the war. Sadly, it backfires, leaving her sick, defeated and suffering from a crisis of faith (and much is made of Florence's guiding belief in God).
But this isn't a revisionist hatchet job. It's a solidly instructive drama that reminded me of something BBC Schools might have shown in the 1970s, full of clunky dialogue ("You played the piano... something new by Mr Chopin") and men with stuck-on mutton whiskers. But, though it has an early-evening slot, there are gruesome bits that might upset tinies. (Alison Graham)
