This BAFTA award winning epic contains all the elements that made Trollope the most popular novelist of his day. Augustus Melmotte arrives in London with his wife and daughter. He appears charming and noble, but a deceitful financier lies beneath the surface. Wasting no time, he charms an unwitting Paul Montague into investing in one of his schemes. However, as Melmotte climbs the society ladder, his web of deceit captures his own daughter Marie and her suitor Felix Carbury, son of feckless novelist Lady Carbury.

A flirtatious vicar, two squabbling sisters, an ingénue and her meddling aunt surround Louis and his wife Emily Trevelyan in the first year of their married life. Things take a darker turn when the roguish Colonel Osborne takes an interest in Emily and fans the flames of Louis’ jealousy. In an atmosphere thick with romance and rumour, Louis finds it all too easy to accuse his wife and force her from the house, together with their young son. Obsessed with the imagined seduction, he descends into darkness, determined to destroy everything he loves.
