A new Screen One production starring lain Glen, Patsy Kensit, Susannah Harker, James Wilby
This first film adaptation of George Eliot's classic novel was written by Maggie Wadey, who wrote the much-praised adaptation of Precious Bane.

Two young men, the carpenter Adam Bede and the squire Arthur Donnithorne, find themselves competing for the love of the beautiful dairymaid Hetty Sorrel. It is a triangle which eventually leads to tragedy for all of them.
When Adam Bede was published in 1859 it was greeted as the work of a major new talent. Charles Dickens was sure the author was a woman. He was right, for George Eliot was the pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans, a country girl who told her publisher that Adam Bede would be full of "the breath of cows and the scent of hay". Director Giles Foster was responsible for the award-winning television production of Eliot's Silas Marner.

Comedy starring
Dustin Hoffman

Actor Michael Dorsey has a problem with work - nobody wants to hire him. His agent blames his reputation for being "difficult" - Michael is outraged and determined to prove him wrong. He wins a part in a daytime soap opera - a good career move, except that it's a female role. Dustin Hoffman gives a virtuoso performance in the double lead role.
