Episode Synopsis: In the conclusion of “Madame Bovary,” Emma (Frances O'Connor) is passionately in love with Rodolphe (Greg Wise). But the rest of her life is not so good. “The world is making a mockery of me,” she moans to Rodolphe, and soon, even he rejects her. Then, in Rouen, she meets up again with Leon (Hugh Dancy), and more passion ensues. As always, her husband Charles (Hugh Bonneville) remains faithful---and, by and large, clueless. He also gives her control of their finances. Lhereux: Keith Barron.

Premise: PBS's longest running (and most honored) dramatic series is an Anglophile's delight, featuring British adaptations of literary classics and original works. The first `Masterpiece' was `The First Churchills,' and since then it has won nine Peabodys and 29 Emmys (beginning with Susan Hampshire's Best Actress award for `Churchills'). Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
