Thérèse Raquin (BBC-2 1980, Kate Nelligan, Mona Washbourne)

Period drama serial. In 19th century France, after her lover kills her husband, Therese Raquin becomes convinced that her late husband’s spirit is stalking her. Caused a slight fuss at the time of its original broadcast because of the frank nature in which the story was dealt with.

The BBC previously mounted this in 1950 as a live production.
