Thank you. I hope I've not stolen tree_and_leaf's thunder! :)

Thunder-theft wasn't intended - surely there is enough thunder to go round...

I'm currently watching part one of the BBC's 1975 adaptation of North and South, and Patrick Stewart has just arrived on the scene as John Thornton, anxious to start reading the Iliad with Margaret Hale's father, before moving onto Plato's Republic, and leaving Margaret flustered as she's just been arguing a couple of scenes before that northern manufacturers like Thornton couldn't be interested in the classics - and perhaps there are other reasons as well.

No, you certainly didn't, but perhaps me announcing my birthday along with wishing her a lovely one on my own journal did. Oh dear.

I am so jealous of your Patrick Stewart watching. I really need to rent more of his BBC roles when I next go to the video store. Patrick Stewart's John Thornton would leave me all hot and bothered and flustered for sure!!!! I envy Margaret Hale!

The way the scene is played, Margaret is more bothered about her father scattering the pearls of his classical learning before the swinish textile manufacturer - but I don't think that it would be played that way now.
