A major adaptation of The Pursuit of Love, 3 x 60 minutes, starring Lily James and Dominic West with a screenplay by Emily Mortimer, premieres on BBC One and on BBC iPlayer in the UK on 9 May 2021, and be available on Amazon Prime Video in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand on 29 July 2021.

Novelist, essayist and historian, Nancy Mitford was one of the funniest writers of the 20th century. Read and re-read by devoted fans, her bestsellers – which include The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate – continue to enchant new generations of readers.

Nancy's novels evoke a lost world of English upper-class elegance and endearing eccentricity, which she observed with the same razor-sharp wit and infectious gaiety that she brought to her historical studies of France.
