Product description

Product Description

BBC adaptation of Anthony Trollope's tale of power and corruption in Victorian London. When the great financier Melmotte (David Suchet) arrives in England and announces a profitable new venture, all manner of people sit up and take notice, and not least the aristocratic-yet-impoverished Carbury family. However, the power of big business and the privileges of the old order seldom sit well together, as the Carbury family will soon learn for themselves. Adapted by Andrew Davies ('Pride and Prejudice', 'Wives and Daughters').


Set in the railway boom of the 1870s, The Way We Live Now captures the turmoil as the old order is swept aside by the brash new forces of business and finance. It contains all the elements that made Trollope the most popular novelist of his day - the trials and tribulations of young love, the enduring values of honourable men; but also the raw energy and excitement of the most powerful city the world had ever seen. It is packed with incident - elopement, scandal, suicide, fortunes made and lost, love lost and won.

It is filled with a range of characters that only Trollope could create - the towering figure of Augustus Melmotte, the great financier; Sir Felix Carbury, a young aristocrat so dissolute he would sell his own mother to pay his gambling debts; his cousin Roger, a man of integrity horrified at the way the world he knew is slipping away, in love with Felix's sister Hetta, the engineer Paul Montague; whose life is complicated by a rash engagement to a glamorous American; who, it is rumoured, once shot a man in Oregon and has now followed Paul to England to hold him to his promise...
