Episode Synopsis: World War II clouds life for a well-to-do British family in “The Cazalets,” a four-part adaptation of Elizabeth Jane Howard's novels. It opens in 1937 as the Cazalets leave London and the timber business run by eldest son Hugh (Hugh Bonneville) for their summer holiday at their Sussex estate.
