Episode Synopsis: Keira Knightley and Hans Matheson star in a two-part 2003 remake of “Doctor Zhivago,” Boris Pasternak's sweeping novel set during the Russian Revolution. But they're together only fleetingly (and by chance) for most of Part 1. While the sensitive Yury makes his name as a physician in prerevolutionary Moscow and marries his childhood sweetheart, Tonya (Alexandra Maria Lara), the mysterious Lara (Knightley) must contend with the lecherous lawyer Komarovsky (Sam Neill).

Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
