Season 33, Episode 3
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).

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.'
