Cold comfort farm has been filmed for TV (at
least)twice, the first time was back in the '60s or
early '70s or so, I saw that before I read the book -
it was that film (IIRC longer than the more recent
version) that prompted me to read the book - which to
my mind - was even better. I seem to recall that
Freddie Jones was Urk (?).
