Screenwriter Andrew Davies (Bleak House) revisits the scandal surrounding D.H. Lawrence's controversial novel Lady Chatterley's Lover in this original BBC drama that explores every detail of the landmark 1960 obscenity trial set into motion by the passionate and explicit book. First printed privately in Florence in 1928, Lady Chatterley's Lover was promptly banned in the United Kingdom for thirty years. Though the details of the trial were all a part of public record, the personal thoughts and reactions of the jury to this controversial novel have remained a mystery. In this fictionalized account of the trial, Davies attempts to get into the minds of two fictional jurors (played by Louise Delamere and Rafe Spall) to explore precisely how Lawrence's prose inflamed an entire generation of readers.
