When Oxford under-graduate Charles Ryder (Jeremy Irons) meets the charismatic Sebastian Flyte (Anthony Andrews) it is the beginning of a devoted friendship, until Sebastian sinks deep into alcoholism and distances himself from those he loves. Charles escapes to Paris to train as an artist finding solace in his career as an architectural painter and ends up in an unhappy marriage. A chance reunion with Sebastian's sister Julia (Diana Quick) revives his love of life as they embark on a passionate affair, only for their happiness to be shattered by the death of Julia's father, Lord Marchmain.

Wonderful Television - Brideshead Revisited: Series review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

It is amazing to think that ITV could have the nerve to produce this excellent piece of what only could be described as art.

They would not be able to do it now, at least not at such a leisurely pace and with time taken to develop character.
