BBC4 ‘Burton and Taylor’ trailer

BBC Four has unveiled the first trailer for single drama, Burton and Taylor.

Starring Helena Bonham Carter (Toast, Great Expectations) and Dominic West (The Hour, The Wire), the drama tells the story of the most fascinating, glamorous and tempestuous relationships of the 20th century, that of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, the two most famous movie stars of their day who played out every high and low of their love affair, their marriages and divorces right in the public eye and their ill-fated appearance in a 1983 revival of Noel Coward’s stage play, Private Lives.
