Chelworth (BBC-1 1989, Peter Jeffrey, Gemma Jones)

Drama series Chelworth followed the story of new duke, Michael Anstey, who leaves his Chinese mistress in Hong Kong and returns to England to lure his wife, Gemma Jones, from her Oxford don lover, their wild daughter and bisexual son back to help restore the family estate and its contents.

Wonderfully cast (including an appearance from the fab John Stride) Chelworth should have been a long running Sunday night style series but for some reason it never quite took off.
