A greeting between them. She steps out and looks after him.

The ice melting -

8B EXT. GABRIEL’S CARAVAN, NORCOMBE HILL - DAY 8B

GABRIEL has two dogs, YOUNG GEORGE who barks and nips at the

flock, and OLD GEORGE who sits contentedly by BATHSHEBA.

A new development. BATHSHEBA watches GABRIEL go about his

work with some admiration. GABRIEL, for his part, is showing

off a little.

GABRIEL:

Come by, George. Come!

(Returning to BATHSHEBA)

He’s keen enough, Young George, but

he doesn’t know when to stop.

(petting OLD GEORGE)

GABRIEL (CONT'D)

Not like this one. Been with me a

long time, haven’t you?

BATHSHEBA:

And what’s that one called?

GABRIEL:

This is Old George.

BATHSHEBA:

(she laughs)

Of course. Old George.

And GABRIEL walks away towards his caravan.

GABRIEL:

Find me amusing, do you?

9 EXT. NORCOMBE HILL - NIGHT 9

BATHSHEBA is out riding once more. She stops. It’s a

beautiful night, the stars framing her, steam rising from the

horse. From somewhere in the distance, the sound of dogs

barking.

Some distance away stands GABRIEL’s hut, the small building

on wheels that he uses for shelter when watching the flock at

night. Smoke rises from the chimney.

But something is amiss.

We follow her towards the caravan. She knocks on the door -

no answer. She goes in and finds -

10 INT. GABRIEL’S CARAVAN, NORCOMBE HILL - NIGHT 10

GABRIEL lies unconscious in the smoky interior. BATHSHEBA

takes in the scene then leaps into action. With all her

strength, she drags him upright, slaps his face.

BATHSHEBA:

Mr Oak! Mr Oak, wake up! Gabriel

Oak!

Nothing. Now she tries to haul him to her feet. But he falls,

a dead-weight, across her lap. This is all new to BATHSHEBA.

A man in her lap. She takes it in. To her side, a jug of

milk. She takes it, throws it into his face.
