Appreciation …

 Brideshead recelebrated: 40 years on, write salutes one of television’s landmark dramas. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

“[. . .] a script commissioned at no small cost from John Mortimer was bravely binned. Granger and team returned to the novel, mining it wholesale – 95% of all the dialogue in the drama is by Evelyn Waugh. Yet Mortimer kept the fee, the screen-credit, and was even nominated for an Emmy.”
