Offers a critical reappraisal of a prolific and popular genre, as well as bringing new material into the broader field of Television Studies. Surveys the traditional discourses about adaptation, unearthing the unspoken assumptions and common misconceptions that underlie them and explores the problems inherent in previous approaches, developing an original perspective that considers the particularly televisual nature of this genre. Examines four major British serials: 'Brideshead Revisited', 'Pride and Prejudice', 'Moll Flanders', and 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall' revealing the genre's importance in constituting and moderating our understanding of the past and of television itself. The first sustained and coherent book on the subject in almost a decade.
