In December 2018 a three-part television adaptation of the same name was broadcast on BBC One. The Long Song is written as a memoir by an elderly Jamaican woman living in early 19th-century Jamaica during the final years of slavery and the transition to freedom that took place thereafter

Set during the final days of slavery in 19th century Jamaica, the story follows 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.

Not because it is true, as it isn't. Nor because such stories have not been told before, which they have. But because to forget the evils depicted would be to diminish ourselves.

A powerful and moving drama, which shows both the horrors of slavery, with casual cruelty borne of disregard for the human-ness of people of a different colour, and more unusually the on going torment faced by those newly freed. Highly recommended.

At times frustrating. At times infuriating. At times scary. At all times, incredibly breathtaking. You'll never guess the ending. The story isn't so hard to conceive, but the characters, some a caricature of what they could be, at times, so deep that you are amazed at how much could come from just three episodes. I wanted so much more to know about the characters that were off-screen and perhaps that's the point. It's told first-person but other characters who were taken out of the story and had their own to tell could probably fill volumes. The ending left me wanting to know what happened next.

It's not a long investment to watch the three episodes in this series. You won't regret the time spent.

Many people see a show like this and immediately pick on small details about the times or actual history. Well this is fiction, most historical shows are because we don't what actually happened. If you want a story close to the truth watch the History Channel and as far as black and white goes watch something made in the 1950s.

This was a book adaption, which doesn't mean it needs to be exactly straight from the book. If it were longer it would have been better, to see what happened between her youth and when she was older, but I just didn't want this to end.

Anyone babbling on about this being politically correct needs to go read a book and get off the internet. This wasn't made to please you. It was made to show one of the horrible realities of slave women.

Its ok. Zip fasteners on the dresses though! A 20th century invention. Always a crass mistake.

I was sorely disappointed, but what did I suspect from the BBC? Another fairy tale story of an enslaved Black woman, shown unrealistically.

If the history of enslavement is going to be shown, show the reality, but I guess this would mar the.notion of the 'white saviour'. In "The Long Story", this trope was seen in the guise of Mr Goodwin and the freely enslaved woman. It gave the expression that she was "free" to enjoy a relationship with her Master, and he was also painted in a very sympathetic light. I cringed while watching this drama unfold, as the nuances of slavery and the agencies of Black women's bodies and how they were exploited was not even touched upon. Because of this, I abandoned watching the drama.

I was looking forward to this as the evils of the Slave trade should never be forgotten, plus this was a drama set in Jamaica for a change. (although they filmed in the Dominican Republic for some odd reason) Yet everything about this was wrong. The characters were like caricatures and it was acted like a badly produced child's school play. The accents were so wrong it was embarrassing. Lenny Henry who lost a lot of weight for this drama but was then in it for a few minutes, (although there were plenty of plump actors playing slaves), but his accent? I was expecting him at any moment to say 'Miss Johnson' (as he did when playing one of his comedy characters). The actress playing Miss July was much too dark, as a mixed race person she could have been dark brown maybe, but not as dark as she was. It detracted from her role and it seemed the casting director had no idea what they were doing. 'Just pick any black actress and it won't matter, no one will notice', seems to have been the attitude. Anyone who knows about slave history knows that only light skinned slaves became house servants. Also the actress playing the older Miss July was a different colour again. The story itself was nonsense and this is a shame because the actual history of the slave revolt in Jamaica is an incredible story that could have been told.

I know how I should like July but somehow I just could not get right behind her. Plus all the acting was so over the top I thought they would burst out laughing any minute I don't think I will watch past the first episode. Waste of time and I was looking forward to Lenny Henry !

I don't think this deserves the bad reviews that it's gotten. It's a dramatisation of a historical events, so I think it should just be taken with a pinch of salt. But, it's still relatable (especially to a Jamaican person). This appeals to popular culture, the first episode ends pretty well, the second episode is pretty fluffy but it sets up the third episode that rounds the series off pretty well. Slavery was a thing and I think people need to be reminded of that, especially when you have people like Kanye spouting that "slavery was a choice" in the media.

Not sure why I was expecting anything new or unique about this story.. its the same old rehashed PC mixed truths and fairy tales. And I'm stuck wondering if they'll ever touch on the true story behind this... you know, like the actual African tribal side of human trafficking and selling humans into slavery, like since the beginning of mankind? If you aren't going to tell the whole truth or at the very least, something constructive and new or rarely touched on.. you're just promulgating racism.

If they would have shot this in black and white, for authenticity purposes and all, it would have been more correct than this tired drivel. NEXT.

This is such a gross piece of fiction! There are zippers on dresses (not invented yet) and the blackness of the main character changes with each generational switch... I feel that this show is an insult to the terrible history that they are trying to depict. Also I know that only "lighter coloured" Peoples were used in the houses of the oppressors as domestic slaves.

Adapted from a fictional novel about the before, during and after the abolition of slavery.

This lengthy saga was very successfully realised in this BBC drama. You sensed the author had conglomerated several lives to raise situations and issues that would sustain a long novel.

This sense of expanse played well and there was fine acting throughout. This was great Sunday night viewing and with the entertainment we learnt a great deal about some difficult truths about sugar production.
