Synopsis
Four-part miniseries based on Anthony Powell's novel "A Dance to the Music of Time," which takes place in England from the early 1920s to the beginning of the 1970s. At the center of the story is Kenneth Widmerpool, the student least likely to succeed at school who confounds his contemporaries with his success in business and politics.
