Overview

Originally telecast by the BBC in 1979, Therese Raquin was a three-part, three-hour adaptation of Emile Zola's ultra-realistic 1867 novel. Kate Nelligan starred as Therese, a bored Parisian housewife who found herself entwined in an extramarital affair with her husband Camille's childhood friend, Laurent. After her lover killed Camille, Therese did her best to cover up the crime, only to imagine herself being haunted by the restless spirit of her deceased spouse. Considered rather explicit for its time, this British miniseries managed to barely squeak by the network censors, and also won a BAFTA award for its costume designer, Reg Samuels. Therese Raquin subsequently aired in the U.S. as part of public television's Masterpiece Theatre anthology beginning April 12, 1981.
