The Barchester Chronicles (DVD)
BBC adaptation of the Trollope classic, starring Alan Rickman, Donald Pleasance, Susan Hampshire, Geraldine McEwan and Nigel Hawthorne.
BAFTA winning BBC dramatization of Anthony Trollope's much-loved series of witty and gently satirical novels about provincial life set in the fictional town of Barchester and the surrounding county of Barsetshire.
Donald Pleasence stars as Reverend Harding. Scandal taints the town of Barchester after the local church becomes the object of a scathing investigative report about the use of church funds. The husbands of Hardings daughters are feuding with each other and each manipulates Harding for their individual purposes. A change in church leadership brings Harding into contact with Reverend Obadiah Slope (Alan Rickman), an unpleasant man who may be hiding some deep secrets.
The distinguished cast in this seven-part adaptation includes Alan Rickman, Susan Hampshire, Donald Pleasance, Geraldine McEwan and Nigel Hawthorne.
