The Way We Live Now
BBC adaptation of Anthony Trollope's tale of power and corruption in Victorian London.
When the great financier Melmotte (David Suchet) arrives in England and announces a profitable new venture, all manner of people sit up and take notice, and not least the aristocratic-yet-impoverished Carbury family.
However, the power of big business and the privileges of the old order seldom sit well together, as the Carbury family will soon learn for themselves.
Adapted by Andrew Davies ('Pride and Prejudice', 'Wives and Daughters').
