Brideshead Revisited was a British miniseries about two young men who met at Oxford University and took place during the time period between the two World Wars. One was a commoner and the other was a member of an aristocratic family. The aristocrats are Catholics in an England that is very Protestant and also eventually find their wealth and affluence in decline. The commoner is at first welcomed by the aristocrats, falls in love with his friends sister, and is ultimately rejected by the family. A fantastic cast and a terrific story. Sir Lawrence Olivier won an Emmy for his performance! It was nearly 13 hours in length and was originally broadcast from October 12 through December 22, 1981.
