In 1969, an internationally-acclaimed BBC show began airing on the fledgling public broadcasting network. The Forsyte Saga, in telling the remarkable story of a nouveau riche English family, introduced America to a new kind of TV. Millions of Americans devoted the next half year of their lives to following the frank treatment of all sins, foibles and peccadillos of the Forsytes and their circle.

The passing decades can never the erase the memory of these extraordinary evenings with the Forsytes: Kenneth More as Jo, the philosophical outsider; Eric Porter as Soames, the grasping man of property; Nyree Dawn Porter as Irene, "born to be loved and to love" and in later episodes, Susan Hampshire in an Emmy-winning performance as Fleur, Soame's 'restless' daughter. The series was so popular that Masterpiece Theatre was created to meet the new demand for great literary adaptations. With 150 characters, 2000 separate costumes and over 100 sets, this sprawling yet intimate saga continues to move, provoke and entrance viewers today.

Editor's Note
An epic television mini-series, this 1969 BBC production was followed by audiences for one half of a television season of American public television series and essentially saved the fledgling Public Broadcasting System. The literary adaptation follows the Victorian pride of the Forsyte family through the scandals and mistakes of the patriarch, Soames (Eric Porter). His ways change when he has a child who grows up to be a captivating young woman (Susan Hampshire) who carries on the family tradition. Based on James Galworthy's Nobel Prize winner.
