Tonight the BBC is airing the long-awaited first episode of their new drama The Pursuit of Love.
The story follows Linda and Fanny, whose friendship is put to the test when one decides to settle for a steady life while the other decides to follow her heart to increasingly wild and outrageous places.
As social and political divisions split the nation, their diverging choices raise personal questions that remain intensely relevant today – questions about freedom, love and sex, and the mystery of the human heart.
Read on to find out who is in the cast and what time the show is on.
Who is in The Pursuit of Love cast?
Set in Europe between the two World Wars, the series follows the charismatic and fearless Linda Radlett (Lily James) and Fanny Logan (Emily Beecham) as they hunt for their ideal husbands.
Among the ladies’ suitors are Tony Kroesig (Freddie Fox), Alfred Wincham (Shazad Latif) and Fabrice de Sauveterre (Assaad Bouab), while the Radletts’ neighbour Lord Merlin – played by a dashing Andrew Scott – warns Linda: ‘Love is for grown ups, as you’ll discover one day.’

Love is the only thing on Linda’s mind but her uncle, Matthew – played by Dominic West – seems none too impressed, shouting: ‘An adulterous woman is the most disgusting thing there is.’
The mini-series also stars Emily Mortimer, Beattie Edmondson and Dolly Wells.
