Granada’s acclaimed ten-part adaptation of Stan Barstow’s classic novel is a landmark in television drama. Following the emotional development of its protagonist over a period of 15 years, A Kind of Loving features powerful performances from Clive Wood as Vic, Joanne Whalley - in her first major television role - as Ingrid, and Susan Penhaligon as Donna. This faithful and sensitive adaptation was originally screened in 1982 and was only kept from the number one ITV programme spot by Coronation Street, pulling in 15 million viewers on average. Much sought-after since its first transmission, it is available here for the first time in any format.

December 1957: miner’s son Vic Brown meets Ingrid Rothwell, an attractive young typist in the engineering firm where he works as a draftsman, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Vic is infatuated; they begin an intense relationship, and when Ingrid discovers that she is pregnant, the couple marry in haste and move in with Ingrid’s mother. But Vic finds that physical desire rapidly fades and the banality of marital life frustrates him as his sense of claustrophobia grows.
