Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The five-part British miniseries Love Among the Artists was based on George Bernard Shaw's third novel, written in 1888 but not accepted by a publisher until 1900, and then not distributed in England until 1914. A satirical sage of romantic musicians within the high-society circles of the late 19th century, the story contained several heavy doses of Shaw's socialism, but not so much as to dampen the entertainment value. John Stride and Geraldine James headed the talented cast. Love Among the Artists was telecast by Granada Television in 1979.
