Storyline

Bestselling author Nancy Mitford's wickedly witty novels The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate draw on her own experiences as a child of Britain's aristocracy between the two world wars. Adapted by Simon Raven (The Pallisers, Edward & Mrs. Simpson), this eight-part Masterpiece Theatre presentation stars Oscar winner Judi Dench (Iris), Michael Williams (A Fine Romance), Michael Aldridge (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), and Vivian Pickles (Harold and Maude). Linda Radlett (Lucy Gutteridge, A Christmas Carol), daughter of Lord and Lady Alconleigh, follows her heart in and out of adventures, marriages, and dalliances, much to the dismay of her parents. Her dear friend Polly Hampton (Rosalyn Landor) maintains a cooler head (and some say, a colder heart) in her romantic entanglements. Seamlessly weaving together the two women's tangled love affairs, this "literate...and entertaining" (People) drama is set against a backdrop of the English nobility's golden age--and a looming world ...

I agree with all the previous comments and more. Anyone that lives nearer than I to Thames TV (the makers, I think) please approach them. I cant get any further away than i am unfortunately. Ask them if it possible to make copies, I will gladly fund any costs; as long as I can distribute the copies freely.

I have sent many a communication to Thames but have never heard back. Please contact me if anyone has any luck. There must be an original copy on video in the archives inn the dungeons of Thames.

I am going to try and contact Thames again and put this proposition to them as I gave up on this a couple of years ago.
