In A Land Of Plenty (BBC-2 2001 with Helen McCrory and Robert Pugh)

When the suburban dream is shattered by a murder, a family must face their worst nightmare in emotionally taut thriller Summer in the Suburbs.

A local community is shocked to its core when the body of a 14-year-old girl, Theresa Gibbs, is found in a field. Local detective constable Ted Lyle (Aneirin Hughes) and his wife Sandra (Tessa Peake-Jones), are naturally concerned about the safety of their teenage children, James (Sid Mitchell), John (Ryan Davenport) and Julie (Jemima Rooper). Fear and suspicion sweep through the neighborhood but before long, Ted finds the finger of suspicion is pointing at his own house.

In the aftermath of this chilling murder, the Lyles become deeply embroiled in a web of lies and deceit. Ted and Sandra fear one of their children has committed a dreadful crime. Do they turn traitor – or protector?
