Available on Prime Video, BritBox, ITVX
BBC's latest period drama, `The Long Song', is an adaptation of Andrea Levy's novel of the same name, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2010. The miniseries is a three-part show set on a slave plantation in Jamaica in the 19th century. The star-studded cast includes Tamara Lawrance, who plays the main protagonist July. July is a headstrong slave, and the maid to cruel mistress Caroline Mortimer, portrayed by Hayley Atwell. The tale is set during the final days of slavery, a period of social turbulence, and promises to be captivating as it provides a voice to people who were all too often rubbed out of history.
