Season 32, Episode 1 The Forsyte Saga

First Aired: October 6, 2002

The series presents a high-gloss remake of “The Forsyte Saga,” John Galsworthy's sprawling Victorian-family soap opera. The first “Forsyte Saga” (which premiered on U.S. public television in 1969) followed the often overlapping romantic affairs of one upper-class London family in 26 episodes. Here it's seven, and Part 1 starts out with young Jolyon Forsyte (Rupert Graves) dumping his wife for his daughter's governess (Amanda Ooms). Later, Jolyon's cousin Soames (Damian Lewis), an austere lawyer, falls hard for the cash-poor Irene Heron (Gina McKee). Bosinney: Ioan Gruffudd.
