Hatfields & McCoys TV miniseries

Western, drama, action… Hatfields & McCoys (TV miniseries) has been a big success in America. Read Yareah magazine review.


Hatfields & McCoys tells the rivalry, hatred and revenge of two American families.

Story just starts in the moment that American Civil War is finishing and keeps on telling the lives of two good brothers in arms during the war: ‘Devil Anse’ Hatfield and ‘Randall’ McCoy and their extensive families.

They are neighbors in civil life, farm owners, and respected patriarchs. Devil Anse is richer than Randall. Randall much more religious. When competition for land and businesses start, the violence will be their maxim, each with a different style, always fatal.

Although the story is set in the Appalachians in West Virginia and Kentucky, the miniseries was actually shot in Transylvania, Romania, just outside of Brașov with the Carpathians standing in for the Appalachians. Doesn’t matter, the setting and photography are excellent.

In fact, the plot is based on a real happening, although it could be a Shakespearean’s play, with impossible love stories and betrayals. However and fortunately, their descendants live today in peace.

Casting is fantastic, specially Kevin Costner (Devil Anse) and Tom Berenger (the psychotic uncle of Devil Anse, Jim Vance).

Precisely, it was Tom Berenger who was in Madrid last week to present the minisiries. ‘Without conflict, nothing happens,’ he said.

Hatfields & McCoys is a three-part 2012 television miniseries produced by History channel which has become a modern symbol of the perils of family honor, justice and vengeance.. Each episode aired for two hours.

The Hatfield–McCoy feud (1863–1891) involved two families of the West Virginia and Kentucky area along the Tug Fork, off the Big Sandy River. The Hatfields of West Virginia were under William Anderson “Devil Anse” Hatfield and the McCoys of Kentucky were under the leadership of Randolph “Ole Ran’l” McCoy. People involved in the feud were descended from Ephraim Hatfield (born c. 1765) and William McCoy (born c. 1750). The feud has entered the American folklore lexicon as a metaphor for any tragic feuding rival parties. More than a century later, the story of the feud keepson in the traditions of the area and tourists visit the relics.

If you like strong stories based on real happening, don’t miss this TV miniseries. One of the best I saw in last times.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time.
