Little Dorrit by Andrew Davies( Visual )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amy Dorrit's (Claire Foy) gentle spirit has never been dampened by the confining walls of the Marshalsea Prison she's lived in her whole life. Despite the dark shadow of debtor's prison, Amy lovingly cares for her father William Dorrit (Tom Courtenay), the longest serving inmate. A possibly redemptive light unexpectedly shines in the form of Arthur Clennam (Matthew Macfadyen), who has been left with the intriguing threads of a mystery after his father's death -- threads that will intertwine his family and fate with the Dorrits. Clennam's exhaustive search for answers involves murder, fortunes gained and lost, the upper echelons and lowest dregs of society, and most surprising of all, a tender romance. Adapted by Andrew Davies (Bleak House, Pride and Prejudice), Little Dorrit, based on the book by Charles Dickens, is a sprawling story as timely as it is moving. - Publisher

In the intersection of history and legend lies the story of William Wallace, who led his nation into battle against the English in the years around 1300. King Edward, popularly known as "Longshanks" has allowed the English barons who hold Scotland for him to claim the 'Prima Nocta.' Wallace and his love Murron marry secretly, but his guerrilla activities bring Murron to the attention of the English. They set a trap for Wallace, and the failure of the scheme sets Wallace on the path of both bloody revenge, and open rebellion against the tyrannical rule of the English. The quest to free Scotland from English rule is complicated by the machinations of various Scottish nobles, bribes from King Edward, and sly political treachery at the hands of Robert the Bruce, whose father has his own plans to further. Despite being taken prisoner, and put to a traitor's death, William Wallace is remembered to this day as a hero of Scotland
