Drama Channel Heads Up

Coming up next week on the Drama channel (in the UK) are episodes from two BBC series that may be of interest.  Drama is on Freeview (Channel 20).

Neither of these series normally had any nudity and so were quite a surprise at the time.

And one further thing on the Drama channel - tonight (Friday) at 10:00pm there is another showing of Jilly Cooper's Riders from 1993.  This was shown on the channel in January and was the short single-part half-length version rather than the original two-part version.  It still contained a lot of the nudity, but some scenes were missing.  Chances are this is the short version again.  It wasn't done to cut out the nudity because what was used was used in full.  The only major scene it missed was the one featuring Serena Gordon.  In fact Serena Gordon's involvement was excised completely removing the entire plotline in which she featured.  It would seem that the series was made at the time in two versions with the abridged version having re-done end credits which removed all the actors who were no longer featured.
