Blood, Sex and Money by Emile Zola, Season 1 - Blood
Animals by Dan Rebellato
The first season of 24 hours of drama inspired by the works of literature's greatest whistleblower - Emile Zola. Glenda Jackson stars as Dide, 104 years old and matriarch to a family of wolves - the Rougon-Macquarts.
France is on the brink of a new empire. This episode is a compelling combination of biting humour and tragedy, as Pierre, Dide's son, siphons off her money and steals his illegitimate siblings' inheritance. By stark contrast, Dide strikes up a caring and loving relationship with her great-grandson, Silvère, whose friendship and love for Miette is heartbreaking as they run off to join the Republican uprising.
