BBC: The Drama Collection

Includes:

A Room With A View (1985)

Nominated for eight Academy Awards® (1986), including Best Picture, and winner of three, Adapted Screenplay, Costume Design and Art Direction, A Room With A View is the film that cemented the reputation of Merchant and Ivory as masters of the period film. A brilliant adaptation of E.M. Forester's novel. Starring Judi Dench, Helena Bonham Carter, Maggie Smith and Daniel Day Lewis.

The Lost Prince (2003)

Winner of the 2005 Emmy Award® for Outstanding Mini-Series, The Lost Prince tells the heartrending story of Prince John, the youngest child of George V and Queen Mary. Born into imperial splendor but suffering from epilepsy and mysterious learning disabilities, Prince John lives his short life isolated from the world. Written and direct by Stephen Poliakoff and starring Miranda Richardson, Michael Gambon and Bill Nighy.

Wives And Daughters (1999)

From the producers of A&E's Pride & Prejudice comes a deliciously engaging drama in the tradition of Jane Austen. The story centers around 17-year-old Molly Gibson, whose efforts to cope gracefully with an impossible stepmother, a beguiling stepsister, burdensome secrets and burgeoning romance ring as true today as when Elizabeth Gaskell wrote Wives and Daughters in 1865. Starring Francesca Annis, Michael Gambon and Ian Carmichael.

The Barchester Chronicles (1982)

A dream cast brings Anthony Trollope's Barchester novels charmingly to life in this engaging production from the golden age of Masterpiece Theatre. The community of Barchester is shaken from its cozy complacency when a newspaper's crusade against the Church of England's practice of self-enrichment misfires. Starring Alan Rickman, Nigel Hawthorne, Donald Pleasence, Geraldine McEwan and Susan Hampshire.

Daniel Deronda (2002)

Adapted by acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies from the classic novel by George Eliot, Daniel Deronda tells the story of a sensitive, charming and illegitimate son of an aristocrat, haunted by secrets that shroud his birth. Starring Hugh Dancy and Hugh Bonneville.

Jane Eyre (1983)

Explore the secrets of Thornfield Manor and the mysterious charms of Mr. Rochester in this beautifully re-mastered version of Charlotte Bronte's inspiring story of a mistreated orphan, Jane Eyre, who finds mystery and romance as she takes her place in the world as a governess. Starring Timothy Dalton.

Middlemarch (1994)

Filled with stunning location footage of England and Rome, this BBC production brings George Eliot's classic to life. As idealistic Doctor Lydgate and progressive Dorothea Brooke are drawn into the lives and intrigues of the town of Middlemarch, the seeds are sown for an epic tale of passion, disillusionment and blackmail. Starring Robert Hardy, Douglas Hodge and Patrick Malahide.
