Parade's End adaptation for BBC

A BBC serial adaptation of Ford Madox Ford's tetralogy of novels Parade's End is to launch on Friday (24th August).

Actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall, Rupert Everett and Miranda Richardson are among the cast for the series, which follows the lives of an English aristocrat and his wife (Cumberbatch and Hall) from the decline of the Edwardian era to the end of the First World War.

The four novels in the sequenceSome Do Not, No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up and Last Post, all originally published in the 1920s—are out in various print and e-book editions from Penguin, Carcanet and Swift Editions.
