Mostly adaptations of novels and plays.
1. Death of a Salesman (1985) - Magnificent performance by Dustin Hoffman in this Arthur Miller play. 2. Miss Marple: The Murder at the Vicarage (1986) - Joan Hickson remains the best Miss Marple. They did the twelve novels. 3. The Tragedy of Richard III (1983) - The BBC versions of Shakespeare's plays remain close to the original. 4. The First Time (1982) - Drama about a girl on the run, with a young Jennifer Jason Leigh. 5. The Hound of the Baskervilles (1983) - Adaptation of the classic detective novel with Ian Richardson as Sherlock Holmes. 6. Uncle Tom's Cabin (1987) - Adaptation of Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel about slavery. 7. Goeie Buren (1987) - Dutch farce with Piet Bambergen, translation of Ray Cooney's Run for Your Wife.

And one of my favorites is The Rape of Richard Beck starring Richard Crenna. The title may put people off of it, but it's really amazing how well they were able to drive home the message of a cop of all people being the victim of a violent rape and he sees first hand what the victims he hasn't been too sympathetic towards go through, and how well they were able to do that without showing anything. I think it does a better job than most attempts done in TV today, and it's really a movie that everybody needs to see.
