The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling

A ribald and bawdy romp through the mansions and taverns of Georgian England. Henry Fielding's fallen hero bed-hops his way out of a good home and almost into a hangman's noose, via a series of misadventures and misunderstandings. Set in the beautiful landscapes of Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Dorset, this sumptuous BBC production boasts a strong supporting cast featuring the likes of Brian Blessed, Samantha Morton, June Whitfield and John Sessions, with Max Beesley in the title role.
