Les Misérables is Victor Hugo’s masterpiece and one of the most beloved books of all time. Now, in a thrilling and heartrending miniseries from Andrew Davies (War and Peace), it will come alive for a new generation. It is the story of France after the Revolution, where for ordinary people – ‘les misérables’ – the struggle to survive in a world of poverty and crime is all that counts. But for Jean Valjean, the convict who fatefully breaks his parole, it is a desperate struggle over many years to escape the relentless pursuit of the police inspector Javert.

“A terrific story about good and evil; the possibilities of redemption and the possibilities of love; the claims of justice and the claims of mercy; and it embodies a huge testimony to the wretched and downtrodden of this world.”

Andrew Davies
