The curious thing is that there has already been a 6 part BBC TV series about the Pre-Raphaelites called The Love School. It came out in 1975 and starred Ben Kingsley as Rossetti! I imagine some BBC 2 viewers will remember this but the new series is to be very different!

DESPERATE ROMANTICS AND POSSESSED
I spent some time yesterday telling producers about the Pre-Raphaelite TV series and luckily this seems to be in our favour. If public awareness is raised about the creation of the PRB movement through the TV series, then the story that our musical POSSESSED tells, of the second wave of the movement, will be far more interesting. I am busy printing out new copies of the script and DVD to send out and on Monday and will be dropping some more copies of scripts into the National Theatre.
