ThisBFI Classic volume on the 1981 television adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s novel Brideshead Revisited draws on detailed research, providing an innovative close audiovisual analysis of the series based on the popular book. The book places Brideshead Revisited in the context of television history, while considering the influence of various films on its style. Informed by art history, Broughton discusses the serial’s use of locations (especially Castle Howard’s landscape architecture) and its pictorial allusions: in particular, its references to the work of artist Felix Kelly. The guide also addresses the series' depiction of art and architecture, its portrayal of social and aesthetic histories, andthe way these histories are refracted through the mind of a highly flawed narrator.
