First Look: BBC One’s Andrea Levy Adaptation ‘The Long Song’

BBC One has released a first look image from their upcoming three-part Andrea Levy adaptation The Long Song. It is set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica and tells the story of the strong-willed, young slave July on a plantation owned by her odious mistress Caroline Mortimer. When a charming new arrival to the island, Robert Goodwin, becomes the new overseer, July and Caroline are both intrigued by his seemingly revolutionary determination to improve the plantation for the slaves and mistress alike.
