Trollope gets the Fellowes treatment
The Pallisers (1974)
cycle of six novels was adapted in its entirety. Its political backdrop caused the BBC to postpone the series in a year of two general elections. The Barchester Chronicles (1982)
first two Barsetshire novels, dealing largely with ecclesiastical affairs, were adapted by Alan Plater and featured Alan Rickman. The Way We Live Now (2000)
terrific adaptation honed stateof-the-nation epic into sharp, satirical drama. David Suchet starred. He Knew He Was Right (2004)
4“Almost altogether bad” was how Trollope described his novel about a jealous husband and a wilful wife, but this version featuring Bill Nighy was a delight.
