Synopsis:
Originally shown on BBC1 in 1974 and rarely seen since, "Penda's Fen" has become the stuff of legend, its name invoking the spirit of a time when television had the power to provoke and astound. Exploring themes of personal and national identity, language, history and industrial progress, this unclassifiable drama boldly weaves its exquisite, fantastical imagery with the rousing music of Elgar to tell a tale of ancient legends and sexual awakening which stands as one of British television's greatest ever achievements.
