Ive not actually watched this series but noticed Catherine Cookson's name appears in quite a few torrents and came across this DVD set in my local library. Took a chance that someone out there might want the show, I took it out and converted it. Hope it meets with your approval. Regarding the numbering of the episodes, I have taken the information from IMDB and divided the episodes into two seasons. The DVD box only listed episode numbers so that is how the original files are numbered.
Catherine Cookson, one of the world's best-loved and most prolific authors, created this passionate saga about an ambitious, scandal-ridden dynasty in nineteenth-century England.
Nothing good ever came of a Mallen. It is said that they're cursed and seldom reach old age or die in bed...and flamboyant, ruthless Thomas Mallen, current squire of High Banks Hall, is living up to that reputation. Brutal and ambitious, he is feared in the wild Northumberland country where he resides--along with the illegitame children he has fathered, each of whom possess a distinctive flash of white hair known as the Mallen Streak.
The squire's taste for women, hunting and high living ultimately drives him and his family into financial ruin. Forced to live in a tiny cottage under severely reduced circumstances, he sinks into a violen, alcoholic haze and in one night, dooms his family forever.
The rest of the Mallen clan each plots to reclaim their former positions of wealth and power, resulting in murder, rape, deceit, suicide, forbidden love and madness.
The Mallens play a savage game of scandal, blind passion and betrayal that will touch three generations--an will only end in one final epic tragedy. (from the DVD box)
Starring: John Hallam, Julia Chambers, Pippa Guard, Caroline Blakiston, John Duttine, Ian Saynor among others.
PLEASE NOTE- I will be uploading the whole series (13 episodes) one at a time due to restrictive bandwidth and will only post when there are other full seeders out there so please continue to seed once you're done, and my thanks for doing so. Hopefully I'll be able to upload a new episode daily so you shouldn't have to wait to long for the whole series.
This is the first episode of the second series, even though the DVD set didn't break them up that way.
