Editorial Reviews

“In the grand tradition of The Forsyte Saga and Upstairs, Downstairs” —Time magazine

“Powerfully addictive” —Time magazine
“Chronicles the passion and politics of Victorian England” —Los Angeles Times

This sprawling BBC saga follows an aristocratic family through three generations of power, wealth, intrigue, and scandal in Victorian England. Based on Anthony Trollope’s “political” novels and adapted by British author Simon Raven (Alms for Oblivion), this classic PBS series has captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

Emmy® winner Susan Hampshire (The Forsyte Saga) stars as the beautiful and witty Lady Glencora, whose arranged marriage to rising politician Plantagenet Palliser (Philip Latham, “marvelous from beginning to end” —The New York Times) endures public and private crises as the family ascends the social ladder. The outstanding cast also features Jeremy Irons (The Borgias), Derek Jacobi (The King’s Speech), Anthony Andrews (Brideshead Revisited), Peter Vaughan (The Remains of the Day), and Penelope Keith (To the Manor Born).

Think Pallisers as the parent of Downton Abbey. It's been 40 years since this drama first exposed TV to the delightful mix of British history, aristocracy, salivating costumes and sets, romance, and elegant despicableness, all within a series that offers characters so well defined and portrayed that they become both personal friend and foe, depending upon the scene. If you have never viewed The Pallisers, now is the opportunity to have the entire series upgraded.

What's new after 40 years? Fortunately no one messed with the content. It is 70s BBC. Being a period drama, props, sets and costumes could not be improved upon even in modern production times. The acting is stellar, another reason it was such a long-lasting hit. Watching after 40 years is as nostalgic as the content of the period portrayed.
SDH SUBTITLES are now available for those needing them. The packaging has diminished 85% (26 episodes on 8 discs in a 1-inch case). The price is a fraction of the original. Over 22 hrs, do the math; it's a value for period pomp & pageantry.

NAME DROPPING series. Many who appeared in the series are so well known they need no introduction.
Susan Hampshire is co-protagonist Lady Palliser with her sparkle that never dulls as she ages through the 20 year saga of the Victorian dynasty.
Philip Latham is perfection as statuesque proper politician Plantagenet Palliser who would become Duke.
Jeremy Irons; Derek Jacobi; Peter Vaughan; Penelope Keith; Anthony Andrews...
Anthony Trollope wrote the 6 adapted novels from 1865-1880. The series followed the books in about equal amounts. It's difficult to improve upon the greatness of Trollope.

This is a fine adaptation of six of my favorite Trollope novels and I've always loved it since it was first broadcast. In addition to an intelligent script it has many outstanding actors, including, just for example, Susan Hampshire and Jeremy Irons, and sumptuous sets. They don't make television series like this any more. Nobody has the money for it.

I bought the original set of 12 DVD's many years ago. In recent years my hearing has declined to the point where I can't always understand what the characters are saying, which makes it hard to enjoy watching them. I was delighted when Acorn Media recently released this new set of DVD's that includes subtitles, and I ordered it in advance from Amazon.

I'm happy to say that the new set is exactly as advertised. It's all here; the only difference is the addition of English subtitles that can be turned on or off. The disks include a disclaimer apologizing for any lapses in picture or sound quality which may be caused by the age of the original material. In my opinion the disclaimer is entirely unnecessary; the picture and sound are perfect.

In the early 1970's thanks to Masterpiece Theater Americans were learning much about the Parliamentary system in Great Britain's Victorian age. This dramatization of Anthony Trollope's Palliser novels delivered a heady blend of social science, political science and human nature that captured the imaginations of the viewers through twists and turns of stories that were the Monday morning discussions in many workplaces. This production has held up well, it is a delight to follow again the lives of the irrepressible Lady Glencora (played by the incomparable Susan Hampshire) and her husband the staid aristocratic Plantagent Palliser (Philip Latham), as they rise to social and political heights, overcoming personal and emotional hurdles. With these two at the center, the production branches out to tell stories of those within their social set, or environment, broadening the picture of the time and how people lived. This was a huge undertaking with an enormous cast whose names are familiar to fans of today's British dramas in television and film. Thanks to Acorn Media for bringing this special edition of a much loved series to us.

Outstanding!!!!! I won't comment on the plot, which is also outstanding, but on the video - audio quality.

These discs are in 4:3 with clear subtitles available. The video quality is superb. I watched it in a dark room on a 70" HDTV from about 12' away, and felt like I was in a theater. The dark room makes you forget the stripes on either side caused by the 4:3 filming. The audio quality is also very good - much better than on many British productions. The only slight glitch is that the audio level on some of the introductory titles on each disc is a bit higher than the actual performance. That means that you have to turn down the volume a bit as the introductory music plays. That is a trivial issue. All in all, we are delighted with the plot, acting, costuming, video and audio quality. Susan Hampshire is also a delight. If you like Upstairs - Downstairs, the Forsythe Saga, Remains of the Day, Gosford Park or Downton Abbey, you will like this. One side delight: We love to identify the British actors we have seen in other productions. You will see many old friends.
