Based on the novels by Anthony Trollope, THE PALLISERS is set in Victorian England, and charters the life of an upper class family. Produced by the BBC, this show follows in the great British tradition of high quality drama shows, and features Derek Jacobi, Jeremy Irons, and Penelope Keith among the cast members. Philip Latham stars as Plantagenet Palliser, a politician who appears to be in a highly unsuitable marriage to the highfalutin Lady Glencora (Susan Hampshire). As the series progresses, Glencora accepts her situation, and even comes to the aid of her husband in his political career. Other characters also play out political roles, and often mirror the situation of the principle couple by carrying the burden of their relationship issues into their work lives. A huge hit on PBS, this release features the show in its entirety.

  • The Pallisers

    I absolutely love it. The only thing I wish was included was subtitles. It is a bit hard for me to clearly understand the British accent, thus subtittles would have been very helpful. The scenery were magnificent so were the costumes.

  • Stunning Period Piece

    I absolutely love period dramas. I watched this on PBS in '77 and appreciated it much more this time around -- It was excellent. It took me an episode or so to get into it, but when I did, I couldn't stop watching -- I just finished it this evening. It's basically a political, aristocracy, noble family thing. Initially slow moving, but perseverance is worth it -- Lady Glencora is charming. The set comes with a booklet summarizing each character -- there are so many to keep track of. I highly recommend perusing the booklet before and during viewing to know who's who.

  • highly enjoyable

    I used this series as an alternative to poor TV programming (sans cable). I have to say that it is difficult to go back to regular TV. The series develops its characters well, and is such a pleasure to watch. I originally thought it expensive, but there are so many episodes, and if you consider the entertainment value over the long time period, it is well worth the price. Excellent costumes. Wonderful characters. Just a really good story, and one I looked forward to seeing on a "stay-at-home" escapist evenings. You may wish to watch it with a glass of port or sherry - they always seem to be drinking it!
