This collection features three of Anthony Trollope's highly regarded works,
brilliantly adapted for the small screen. With over 15 hours of timeless film
from one of the nineteenth-century's greatest writers, visit the fascinating
world of Victorian England, as the prolific and respected novelist illustrates
the penetrating conflicts of the day.
He Knew He Was Right: Louis Trevelyan's refusal to believe in his wife Emily's fidelity destroys a perfect marriage and drives him, literally, insane.
Suspicious beyond reason that she is having an affair with Colonel Osbourne, a man of dubious reputation, he forces his wife out of their house, hires the seedy private detective, Bozzle, to spy on her and organises the kidnapping of their son with devastating consequences. Throughout, Emily's protestation of her innocence, and the couple's enduring love for each other despite their estrangement, render the story moving and tragic.
The Way We Live Now: Set in the railway boom of the 1870s, Anthony Trollope's epic tale of Victorian power and corruption captures the turmoil as the old order is swept aside by the brash new forces of business and finance.
It is packed with the trials and tribulations of young love, the enduring values of honourable men, the raw energy of one of the most powerful cities in the world and the greed and corruption that lay below its glittering surface.
The Barchester Chronicles: The acclaimed 1982 BBC adaptation of Anthony Trollope's novels.
The community of Barchester is shaken from its cosy complacency when a newspaper's crusade against the Church of England's practice of self-enrichment misfires. Overnight, Rev. Harding (Donald Pleasence) becomes a pawn in a battle between his younger daughter's beau, John Bold (David Gwillim), and his older daughter's husband. Little do they realise that the worst is yet to come, until a regime change delivers Barchester into the hands of a most unholy trinity: the weak-willed Bishop Proudie (Clive Swift), the domineering Mrs. Proudie (Geraldine McEwan) and the insufferable Rev. Obadiah Slope (Alan Rickman).
Features the documentary, THE TWO LOVES OF ANTHONY TROLLOPE.
