Sharpe Cut

SHARPE CUT: The Inside Story of the Creation of a Major Television Series by Linda Blandford

The Sharpe television series is a high point of British television drama. Led by the charismatic Sean Bean playing the redoubtable hero Richard Sharpe, the films brilliantly echo and enhance the remarkable strengths of the bestselling novels by Bernard Cornwell. Fourteen films have already aired and now two new films are being released. The series has achieved 14 million viewing figures, with additional and ongoing sales in video and DVD.

'Sharpe Cut' is a unique book. It is the book of the creation of a television drama from start to finish; the first of its kind.Collapse )
