0120160829 (BBC7)

A tale of two families and a fresh era for the Minsters of Crown House, and the Royal Family of Windsor. A serial in eight episodes by Peter Ling and Juliet Ace.

Starring Jane Asher as Jenny, Gayle Hunnicutt as Gina, Margaret Rawlings as Old Bea, Dinah Sheridan as Alice, Martin Jarvis as Richard, Richard Pasco as William and Dominic Rickhards as Nicholas.

April 21, 1926 is a significant date for both households. While the old Earl of Minster is laid to rest and his son, William assumes the title, the King and Queen await the birth of a royal grandchild.

William's wife, Alice, is lady-in-waiting to Queen Mary, and through her the families are drawn together; but at the heart of the story is the house itself, set in its magical garden, slowly maturing in beauty year by year, as the saga unfolds.

Producer: Graham Gauld
