Brideshead Revisited, er, revisited

FEY! Brideshead Revisited, UKTV Drama, 8.00pm
Contrary to appearances, we've not received any kind of bribe from the government to provide at least one intellectual or eduational preview each week, we're just doing our best to recommend a wide variety of shows that might appeal to you, our beloved reader(s). With that in mind, we thought we'd help you get in at the beginning for a rerun of the epic ITV dramatisation of Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited - you know, the sort of programme they bragged about having made on that recent restrospective with Melvyn Bragg to try to detract attention away from the fact that they're now responsible for Rock Around The Block and Celebrity Love Island. Anyway, this is a classy drama of the sort that no one, ITV or otherwise, seems to be making any more, and with a top-notch cast to boot, including Jeremy Irons, Anthony Andrews and Sir John Gielgud. The basic plot, for those of you who are unfamiliar, revolves around young Charles Ryder becoming acquainted with Sebastian Flyte and developing a taste for his aristocratic trappings. And if that's not enough to whet your appetite, we could point out that it contains more smouldering homoeroticism than Blue Peter and Smallville put together. Oh, look at that, we just did. It's a big task to take on, though - there are 12 hour-long instalments to keep up with. You might want to have your teddy bear on the sofa with you - y'know, in case you get a bit sleepy.

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
