The Forsyte Saga Original Series 12

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Originally shown as 26 1-hour-long episodes, this box set of 8 volumes spans the fortunes of the Forsytes, a merchant family, from 1870 through to the 1920s. The story begins in 1879 and Winifred Forsyte is to marry man of means Monty Dartie, while Jo Forsyte is having a relationship with Helene, the Austrian governess of his daughter. When Jo's wife dies he marries his mistress, only to be cut off by the family.

When originally broadcast on the BBC in the late 1960s, vicars would reschedule Evensong in order not to lose much of their congregation who did not want to miss the latest instalment. It was adapted for television and produced by Donald Wilson and was originally shown in twenty-six episodes on Saturday evenings between 7 January and 1 July 1967 on BBC2, at a time when only a small proportion of the population had television sets able to receive the channel. It was therefore the Sunday night repeat run on BBC1, starting on 8 September 1968, that secured the programme's success with 18 million tuning in for the final episode in 1969.

Episodes in chronological order are: 'A Family Festival'; 'A Family Scandal'; 'The Pursuit of Happiness'; 'Dinner at Swithin's'; 'A Man of Property'; 'Decisions'; 'Into the Dark'; 'Indian Summer of a Forsyte'; 'In Chancery'; 'The Challenge'; 'In the Web'; 'Birth of a Forsyte'; 'Encounter'; 'Conflict'; 'To Let'; 'A Family Wedding'; 'The White Monkey'; 'Afternoon of a Dryad'; 'No Retreat'; 'A Silent Wooing'; 'Action for Libel'; 'The Silver Spoon'; 'Strike'; 'Afternoon at Ascot'; 'Portrait of Fleur'; and finally 'Swan Song'.
All dvds, cases and inserts in excellent condition, no visible flaws.
