1ST 'BEECHAM HOUSE'
PHOTOS FROM INDIA SET SAGA
The first photos are in from ITV's upcoming new historical saga BEECHAM HOUSE which will air sometime next year starring Tom Bateman as a handsome and soulful former soldier, John Beecham, who has acquired the
Delhi house to start a new life for his family and a business as a trader. Wealthy and distinguished, John has witnessed profiteering and exploitation
during his time with the controlling East India Company and appears haunted by his past. Determined to escape that life, he sets his sights on becoming an
honourable member of the region’s trading community. But in the glorious setting of BEECHAM HOUSE, John’s life remains shrouded in mystery. His arrival provokes gossip amongst the servants and despite filling his residence
with relatives and friends, Beecham’s house still has dark corners that crackle with conspiracy and sinister intent. The story also unfolds at a time when the
1,000 year old Mughal rule is over and the British vie with the Maharajas to claim India as their own. The cast also includes Marc Warren, Gregory Fitoussi, Leo Suter and others.

'DEATH AND NIGHTINGALES'
BBC TV SAGA TRAILER WITH JAMIE DORNAN AND MATTHEW RHYS
Rival BBC has, meanwhile, released the first trailer for their three part mini series DEATH AND NIGHTINGALES which will air later this month on BBC Two! Set in 1885 it takes place over a desperately tense 24-hour period.
It’s Beth Winters’ (Ann Skelly) 23rd birthday and also the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Jamie Dornan) to escape from her limited life and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner
stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys). As decades of pain and betrayal finally build to a devastating climax, DEATH AND NIGHTINGALES sees a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will ultimately illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart. The trailer does not look too promising! The series starts airing on BBC Two November 28th!
|The series is set within just 24 hours!|
|The series will air very soon on BBC Two, possibly end of the month|
