Description
The 26 episodes of this sprawling Emmy Award–winning BBC saga from 1974 (based on Anthony Trollope’s "political" novels) follow an aristocratic family through three generations of power, wealth, intrigue, scandal, and high society in Victorian England. Emmy winner Susan Hampshire (The Forsyte Saga) stars as the captivating Lady Glencora, whose arranged marriage to rising politician Plantagenet Palliser (Philip Latham, "marvelous from beginning to end"—NY Times) endures public and private crises as the family ascends the social ladder ("Lady Glencora, gentlemen, has the gift of laughter, which has always been hated by the poor in spirit and loved by the gods.") Anthony Andrews, of Brideshead Revisited fame, plays their son, Lord Silverbridge, while Roland Culver portrays another favorite character, the Duke of Omnium and Gatherum. Other notables, in the cast are Jeremy Irons (Andrews's Brideshead co-star), Derek Jacobi, and Penelope Keith. Bonuses include an interview with Susan Hampshire, a viewer's guide, and background on Trollope.
