FORSYTE SAGA PART 2 (article first published : 2005-05-2)

Starting on M-Net on May 7 at 20h30, The Forsyte Saga is an epic saga spanning three generations of the upwardly mobile Forsyte family at the turn of the 20th century. It's based on the classic novels by Nobel Prize-winning author John Galsworthy.

This sexy and powerful drama makes compelling viewing with its high production values, beautiful locations and top-notch cast. It's a tale of sexual jealousies, estrangement, infidelities, rape and divorce set against a backdrop of cultural and social change, private opulence and political chaos. But underneath the tribe's superior, arrogant surface lies a festering core of unhappy and brutal relationships.

In the UK the series drew an audience of 8.9 million viewers on its opening night. Starring Damian Lewis (Warriors, Hearts And Bones), Gina McKee (Notting Hill, Our Friends In The North) and Ioan Gruffudd (Hornblower, Black Hawk Down), as well as Rupert Graves and Gillian Kearney.
