Regional Variations (2)

Mr Speaker, Sir...

BBC One Scotland

with John Neville, Polly James, Anne Stallybrass

This Omnibus film, a fictionalised biography about the life of John Milton , shows the poet in 1665, as an old man, blind and out of favour because of his political past, leaving London with his family to escape the plague. In a small cottage at Chalfont St Giles with his 26-year-old third wife and three teenage daughters, the poet tries to find sufficient peace to work. But his second daughter, Mary, is as stubborn as he is and a clash between them is inevitable.
