The Peacock Spring
9.00pm BBC1: Post-war India has provided fertile soil for films and TV dramas: witness the success of The Jewel in the Crown and all those Merchant/Ivory movies. Now it's the turn of novelist Rumer Godden to make it to the small screen with a two-part adaptation of The Peacock Spring.
It's set in 1959 in New Delhi, where diplomat Sir Edward Gwithian (Peter Egan) has engaged a new governess for his teenage daughters. When Una and her sister Hal arrive from England, they're hostile to their arrogant new "mother" and drawn to romance with "unsuitable" young men. Naveen Andrews (star of The Buddha of Suburbia) fits the bill as under-gardener Ravi.
The Peacock Spring concludes tomorrow evening.
