A Woman of Substance
Based on the phenomenally successful novel, the sweeping saga of Emma Harte's dazzling climb from impoverished shop girl to head of a vast empire is a celebration of one woman's indomitable spirit.

Deborah Kerr and Jenny Seagrove shared the title role of the indominable Emma Harte, and superstar Liam Neeson created the role of Blackie O'Neill. The miniseries earned two Emmy Nominations: one for its star Deborah Kerr and one for the series.
