Paradise Postponed

Thames Television, London, UK, WGBH-TV, Boston, Massachusetts

For many years the Masterpiece Theatre series has presented the richness of British television drama to American audiences. Few television productions have achieved the high level of dramatic accomplishment reached by Paradise Postponed. These twelve hours represent the highest levels of artistic achievement in the medium. Rich in characterization, stunning in scenic detail and eloquently written, Paradise Postponed illustrates in microcosm the swirl of events which has changed Britain since World War II. Another triumph for Thames Television and WGBH-TV, and another Peabody Award for Masterpiece Theatre.
