Location Flanders has lovely photos from the new BBC/HBO miniseries “Parade’s End.”
Flanders House, a New York-based nonprofit that promotes interest in Belgium and Flanders in specific, has this to say:
“Parade’s End (is) a prestigious new BBC/HBO drama series based on the books by Ford Madox Ford and directed by Susanna White. The story is set against the backdrop of WWI and follows Christopher Tietjens, a top civil servant from a background of wealth and privilege, whose marriage flounders almost as soon as it begins. He falls in love with another woman, but he remains honorable for some considerable time to Sylvia who has several affairs. On top of this, Chris is dealing with shell shock and partial memory loss that he endures during the war.”
It stars Benedick Cumberbatch, Rebecca Hall and Stephen Graham.
