From the Back Cover:

Set in the palatial country houses and grand Mayfair salons of mid-Victorian England, The Pallisers is a sprawling BBC saga of wealth, passion, power, intrigue and scandal.

Based on the six "political" novels by Anthony Trollope -- called the finest sequence of fiction ever written about British Parliamentary life -- and adapted by contemporary British novelist Simon Raven, this series proved powerfully addictive to television audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

These first eight episodes introduce Plantagenet Palliser (Phillip Latham) and Lady Glencora (Emmy Award-winner Susan Hampshire), whose politically advantageous marriage sets the stage for this fascinating chronicle of three generations of a powerful aristocratic family. Also starring Anna Massey (Angels and Insects), Barbara Murray and Roland Culver as the formidable Palliser patriarch.
