I wrote this প্রবন্ধ about one of the major characters in the "NORTH AND SOUTH" Trilogy, written দ্বারা John Jakes and adapted for টেলিভিশন দ্বারা David Wolper:
"REMEMBERING VIRGILIA HAZARD"
My সাম্প্রতিক viewing of my "NORTH AND SOUTH Trilogy" DVD set, led me to the "Special Feaures" section that featured a behind-the-scene look at the টেলিভিশন miniseries trilogy.
