Miniseries, Distribution, Drama

Set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles that tear lives and famillies apart, human drama and love stories entwine. Tom, the master builder; Aliena, the noblewoman; the sadistic Lord William; Philip, the prior of Knightsbridge; Jack, the artist in stone work and Ellen, the woman from the forest who casts a curse - these are just some of the fascinating characters. Based on Ken Follett's hugely popular novel, The Pillars of the Earth weaves their stories through the political turmoil of 12th-century England.
