The Covington Cross TV show was a 60 minute drama series on ABC about a medieval village on the English countryside where the inhabitants somehow had political views more like people in the 21st century. The head man in the area was a Lord who didn't tax his underlings to death. He was sensitive to their concerns and needs. Women had rights that were equal to those of men and everyone was careful to say nothing that might be considered to be politically incorrect!

Covington Cross Trivia
There were six episodes of the Covington Cross TV show that were produced but was not broadcast. Their titles were: "Eviction", "The Trial", "The Plague", "Revenge", "Celebration", and "Brothers".
In keeping with its silly politically correct in medieval times storyline, the scripts often contained historically incorrect moments. In the very first episode, Sir Thomas Gray's son William left home to take part in the Crusades even though the Crusades had ended more than a century earlier!
Covington Cross didn't really have much competition in its 8:00PM time on Saturday evenings. CBS was airing "Frannie's Turn" and "Brooklyn Bridge". NBC was broadcasting "Here and Now" and "Out All Night". FOX probably drew most potential viewers from Covington Cross by offering an hour of "Cops" in that slot.
The Covington Cross TV show was filmed on location in England at Penshurst Place, Kent and at Allington Castle.
