A Dance to the Music of Time is a sumptuous adaptation of Anthony Powell's epic literary masterpiece.
This star-studded drama was broadcast last year on Channel 4, and has just been released on video. Within Kenneth Widmerpool's (Simon Russell Beale) social circle is a group of English eccentrics, played by Edward Fox, Sir John Gielgud, Miranda Richardson, Zoe Wanamaker, Paul Rhys, James Purefoy, Claire Skinner and Alan Bennett.
