The Dwelling Place is the 1994 made-for-TV adaptation of the best-selling Catherine Cookson novel. In 19th century England, teenager Cissie Brodie (Tracy Whitwell) is left on her own after she loses her parents and the family home. She finds a place to stay in a cave in order to take care of her younger brothers and sisters. She falls in love with the equally poor carpenter Matthew Turnbull (Ray Stevenson), who is burdened with caring for his aging parents. Cissie is raped by aristocrat Clive Fischel (Edward Rowie-Hicks) and ends up having a child that she must fight to keep against the child's biological grandfather, Lord Fischel (James Fox).The Glass Virgin is a 1995 UK television miniseries directed by Sarah Hellings, adapted from the best-selling novel by Catherine Cookson. In 19th century England, wealthy young Annabella Lagrange lives a comfortable and secluded life on her family's country estate, where her parents (Nigel Havers and Christine Kavanagh) own a glass works. As a child (played by Samantha Glenn), she develops a special friendship with the charming stable boy Manuel Mendoza (Brendan Coyle). When she turns 18 (played by Emily Mortimer), she marries her cousin Stephen (Anthony Walters) and sees what the world is really like.The Man Who Cried was one of many miniseries adaptations of the works of Catherine Cookson which aired on British television in the 1990s. Set during the Depression years, the series starred Ciaran Hinds as unhappily married Abel Mason. Attempting to escape his insufferable wife Lena (Angela Walsh), Abel flees to Yorkshire, where he enters into an illegal matrimonial union with a wealthy widow. The web of deceit becomes even more tangled when Abel falls in love with his new "wife's" sister Florrie (Kate Buffrey). Produced by Tyne Tees Television, the three-part, three-hour The Man Who Cried was originally telecast in 1996.
