A lavish new drama mini-series set in England and America in the 1680's from the makers of the award winning 'The Devil's Whore', 'Elizabeth I' and 'The White Queen'. In England, the restored monarchy of Charles II has betrayed its promises and reverted to tyranny. Behind the decadence of the court, a terror machine is repressing the freedoms won for the people during England's bloody civil war. In America, the tentacles of state terror reach the colonists but they themselves are ruthlessly stalking their claim to the territories occupied by the native American Indians in a chilling echo of the tyrannical behaviour they seek to escape. Against this turbulent backdrop four young people - Beth, Hope, Abe and Ned - struggle to choose between love and ideals in the harsh reality of the changing world. 'New Worlds' is gripping story of love, loss and the price of freedom.
