Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Ford Madox Ford's beloved novel comes to the small screen in this 1964 BBC mini-series starring Judi Dench and Ronald Hines. Christopher Tietjens (Hines) is an Eduardian aristocrat caught in a treacherous love triangle involving his cruel, socialite wife Sylvia (Jeanne Moody) and pretty suffragette Valentine Wannop (Dench). As the drums of World War I start to beat, Christopher heads to war. Meanwhile, suppressed passions and strict social obligations lead to an intense personal struggle that mirrors the chaos Christopher experiences on the battlefield.
