Masterpiece Episode: "The Forsyte Saga"

Season 32, Episode 4
Episode Synopsis: "The Forsyte Saga." As Part 4 (of seven) opens, Irene (Gina McKee) has left Soames (Damian Lewis), and it has been left to June to bury Bosinney. But there are also "new beginnings": Old Jolyon buys Robin Hill, the house Bosinney designed for Soames, and moves there with June, Young Jolyon and his family. Five years later, the now-lonely Old Jolyon meets Irene, who's now a music teacher. She has suffered through hard times since leaving Soames. "We can be pathetic together," he tells her.

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.'
