BritBox, the subscription streaming service from BBC Studios and ITV, offering the biggest and best collection of unmissable streaming British entertainment in North America, continues to provide the best viewing experience for British television by exclusively releasing a 4K remastered version of Brideshead Revisited.
Considered to be one of the greatest literary adaptations of all time and even called “the biggest British invasion since the Beatles” by The New York Times, Jeremy Irons (Dead Ringers) and Anthony Andrews (Upstairs, Downstairs) star in this beloved drama based on Evelyn Waugh’s 1945 novel, Brideshead Revisited. Taking place from the 1920s to the early 1940s, this seminal story follows the life and romances of protagonist Charles Ryder. Though of no money or family, Charles befriends Sebastian Flyte, who comes from a wealthy family of English Catholics who live in a palatial mansion by the name of Brideshead Castle. 40 years after the original release date, this incomparable 11-part-miniseries remains “one of history’s finest period dramas” (Harper’s Bazaar) and “television’s greatest literary adaptation, bar none” (The Telegraph). Brideshead Revisited Remastered in 4K will honour the 40th anniversary of this incredible series, allowing fans to watch the series in a way that has never been seen before.
Brideshead Revisited Remastered in 4K will premiere Tuesday, October 12, 2021.
