Beginning This Friday, Nov. 14: #NS10 – Series Fans Will Celebrate The 10th Anniversary of North & South’s Premiere!
CELEBRATE THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF NORTH & SOUTH WITH ALL THE FANS OF THE SERIES!
The weekend of Nov. 14 marks the 10th anniversary of the BBC series North & South, and we are planning a fan-based, online GLOBAL celebration.
The celebration is designed to include fans of the entire cast: Richard Armitage, Daniela Denby-Ashe, Brendan Coyle, Tim Pigott-Smith, Sinéad Cusack, Lesley Manville, Anna Maxwell Martin, Jo Joyner, Pauline Quirke, Brian Protheroe, Rupert Evans, John Light, William Houston, and all others involved (even that slimy eel Slickson)!
We’re keeping it flexible and simple:
- Beginning the weekend of Friday, November 14 through Sunday, November 16, watch N&S. (Because the series originally ran through December 5, we’ll continue the celebration through the weekend of Dec. 5, 2014.)
- While you watch, take a selfie. (And shy people: if you, like me, aren’t comfortable with a selfie that includes your face, you can still celebrate with us. My selfie, for example, will probably going to be of my legs stretched out on the coffee table in front of the TV!). Have fun, be creative… but keep it clean!
- Post your photo on Twitter, your Facebook page, Tumblr, on the NS10 Facebook site (link below)… everywhere using the #NS10 (withnospaces) hashtag*!
- Important note: When you post your selfie with the #NS10 hashtag, include your location to demonstrate the global appeal of North & South, and the actor(s) you follow to demonstrate the series’ lasting impact.
*The #NS10 hashtag will help us compile all of these into one place, either on the special N&S FB page (link below) or on a blog.
- Watch N&S between Nov. 14 and Dec. 7.
- Take a selfie.
- Post your selfie with the #NS10 hashtag EVERYWHERE you use social media!
- On your post, include where you live and which characters/actors you like.
And that’s it!
So get ready to make a good, strong pot of stew; sit back; and enjoy the series that has entranced so many for 10 years with Margaret and Mr. Thornton, Higgins and Bessy, Fanny and Hannah, Mr and Mrs. Hale and Dixon… the entire marvelous cast!
