"Brideshead Revisited" is a 1981 British
television serialbased on the novel of the same name by Evelyn Waugh. The book was adapted to the screen by producer Derek Grangerand Martin Thompsonafter the initial script by John Mortimerwas rejected. It was directed mainly by Charles Sturridge, but part of one or more episodes by Michael Lindsay-Hogg. It stars Jeremy Ironsas Charles Ryder, Anthony Andrewsas Lord Sebastian Flyte, Laurence Olivieras Lord Marchmain, Claire Bloomas Lady Marchmain, Diana Quickas Lady Julia Flyte, and Jane Asheras Lady Celia Ryder; also featuring Phoebe Nichollsas Lady Cordelia Flyte, John Gielgudas Edward Ryder, Simon Jones as Lord Brideshead, Nickolas Graceas Anthony Blanche, Stéphane Audranas Cara, Lord Marchmain's lover, and Charles Keating as Rex Mottram.
The Oxford scenes were largely filmed at Waugh's alma mater,
Hertford College, Wadham Collegeand Christ Church. The location for Brideshead, the fictional manor, was Castle Howardin Yorkshire. Scenes on the deck of a transatlantic liner were filmed aboard the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2. By the standards of British television, the drama series of the late 1970s was lavish; Granada Television's broadcasting franchise was up for competitive renewal in 1981 so the company designed "Brideshead Revisited" to prove themselves a quality company.
It was shown in the United States on
Public Broadcasting Serviceand was considered daring at the time for its willingness to show an extended sexscene between Charles Ryder and Julia Flyte. Tom Wolfewrote that the series was successful in the United States because it was a plutography, i.e., a "graphic depiction of the lives of the rich."
The memorable theme with a high
baroque trumpetwas composed by Geoffrey Burgon.
In a list of the
100 Greatest British Television Programmesdrawn up by the British Film Institutein 2000, voted for by industry professionals, the adaptation was placed 10th.
This programme received so many votes that it finished seventh in the best of "Masterpiece Theatre" vote conducted for the 35th anniversary of that anthology series. Anthony Andrews came on at the end of this program to thank the viewers and then explained that it had not aired on "Masterpiece Theatre". It had aired in the US as a part of the
PBSseries " Great Performances" in 1982.
