Synopsis

This handsome romantic drama chronicling the lives of two 19th-century families -- one Irish, the other English -- and the American family dynasties they began, was the collaborative work of daytime soap opera queen Agnes Nixon (creator of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," among others) and British writer Rosemary Anne Sisson (creator of "Upstairs, Downstairs"). The three-part, six-hour saga, the work of two directors and three photographers, served ultimately to introduce to American audiences Irish actor Pierce Brosnan, playing Rory O'Manion, who rises from immigrant to successful Philadelphia businessman and Union Army Captain during the American Civil War. Filmed entirely in and around Dublin (which doubled for Philadelphia of the middle 1800s).
