A new eight-part serial of life in Flanders in the 20s and 30s.
Belgium between the two wars and two contrasting farm families, one rich, the other poor, is the setting for a drama of passion and incident by an author new to the English-speaking world.
Thys Glorieus, from hardworking but poor country stock, really does mean well, and his belief in justice is always unshaken, even when it is uncomfortable for him, or others. This distinguished production introduces to English viewers and readers a novel that has been compared to the best of Thomas Hardy and D.H. Lawrence.
Hugo Metsers as Thys Glorieus with the English voice of Peter Marrinker and including Kate Binchy, Angela Pleasence
A co-production by AVRO (Holland) and BRT (Belgium).

programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
