The Cazalets (2001) short review

Yet another fabulously sprawling, multi-character story from the BBC, this miniseries tells the story of the well-to-do Cazalet family, from the late 1930s through World War II. Based on the novels by Elizabeth Jane Howard, the story follows family members of each generation. Highly entertaining if you like this kind of thing, with gorgeous costuming (particularly in the pre-war years).
