BEAU BRUMMELL: THIS CHARMING MAN

Fast-paced period drama chronicling the rise and fall of the 18th-century dandy and man-about-town Beau Brummell, portrayed by James Purefoy. Long before the age of celebrity, Brummell was causing a stir amongst the glitterati of London, with the Prince Regent (Hugh Bonneville) among his closest friends. Yet his meteoric rise to fame preceded an equally spectacular descent, after insulting the prince and with numerous gambling debts he was forced to flee England in 1816 and live in exile.
