CHECK IT OUT Television Week Your handy 7 day lift-out Dickens epic tale of obsession, love Gillian Anderson as Miss Havisham and Oscar Kennedy as Young Pip in Great Expectations Picture: ABC TV A RAW and passionate threepart adaptation of one of Charles Dickens finest novels starring Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth, Gillian Anderson and David Suchet starts on ABC next week. In episode one of Great Expectations a terrifying encounter on the marshes with an escaped convict and a summons by the mysterious Miss Havisham (Gillian Anderson) are enough to change orphan Pips (Oscar Kennedy and Douglas Booth) life forever. He dares to believe he might be destined for a future beyond the marshes a future linked to that of Miss Havishams beautiful daughter Estella (Vanessa Kirby). Part thriller, part mystery, this is an epic tale of obsession, corruption, revenge, redemption and forgiveness. With the shadow of the gallows ever present, it shows how far people will go for love. The casting of Gillian Anderson as the obsessive jilted bride Miss Havisham drew attention to the production due to her being a mere 43 compared to other actresses who have played the role. Ray Winstone said: Great Expectations is my favourite novel, and Im thrilled to be playing Magwitch. Screenwriter Sarah Phelps said: It is dark and complex, with the shadow of the gallows always present, but beating throughout is the passionate human heart. Ultimately it is a story of what we will do, what we will risk and just how far we will go for love. n Great Expectations on ABC1, Sunday at 7.30pm.

Empire laid bare THE British Empire was the largest in history and its influence stretched all over the globe. Presented by Jeremy Paxman, a new fivepart series tells the story of the empire in a new way, tracing not only its rise and fall but also the complex effects it has had on the modern world political, technological and social. Travelling across the globe, Jeremy goes in search of the extraordinary characters, burning ambitions and surprising principles which created an empire that has so influenced the shape of the world we see today. From India to Canada, the Far East to Africa, Jeremy finds out how the empire began as a pirates treasure hunt and grew into the largest global financial network the world had ever seen; how the British created a particular idea of home wherever they conquered and settled; and how Britain spread the gospel of sport. The first episode looks at the many different ways in which Britain took and held power in the Empire from naval might to the use of local troops to a calculated display of imperial pageantry and the cult of monarchy. n Empire: A taste for power, on SBS1 tomorrow at 9pm.
