Brideshead Revisited

Show Summary

Welcome to the Brideshead Revisited guide at TV.com. Based on a book by Evelyn Waugh, this series is a lament for an aristocratic England which at the end of the 1939-45 War seemed to be vanishing for ever. Charles Ryder, a wartime British Army captain, is posted to Brideshead Castle and remembers his doomed pre-war love affairs there - first with Lord Sebastian Flyte, later with his sister Julia. Filmed on locations which included Castle Howard, Yorkshire (as Brideshead Castle), Oxford, Venice, Malta, and the transatlantic liner Queen Elizabeth, the budget for the eleven episodes was compared to that for a string of feature films. The result was spectacular - in Mike Scott's words, "every frame a Rembrandt". The series is available on VHS and DVD and has a total length of 750 minutes. Awards: Brideshead Revisited took three BAFTA Awards in 1982 (Best Drama Series, Best Film Sound, and Best Actor - for Anthony Andrews) and had six other BAFTA nominations in the same year. In the USA, it received two Golden Globe Awards, and Jeremy Irons was nominated for a third for his portrayal of Charles Ryder.moreless
