Pallisers, The: 40th Anniversary Edition
This sprawling BBC saga follows an aristocratic family through three generations of power, wealth, intrigue, and scandal in Victorian England. Based on Anthony Trollope's "political" novels and adapted by British author Simon Raven (Alms for Oblivion), this classic PBS series has captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
Emmy winner Susan Hampshire (The Forsyte Saga) stars as the beautiful and witty Lady Glencora, whose arranged marriage to rising politician Plantagenet Palliser (Philip Latham, "marvelous from beginning to end" The New York Times) endures public and private crises as the family ascends the social ladder. The outstanding cast also features Jeremy Irons (The Borgias), Derek Jacobi (I, Claudius), Anthony Andrews (Brideshead Revisited), Peter Vaughan (The Remains of the Day), and Penelope Keith (To the Manor Born).
