The episode list does not appear to be correct. The original Forsyte Saga miniseries had six episodes, not ten, and the sixth episode ends with the birth of Soames's daughter (the end of episode seven here). The follow-on miniseries, "The Forsyte Saga: To Let" (which is described in a separate Wikipedia article), had four episodes, which appear to be the episodes seven to ten here.

It seems to me there must be two different "cuts" of this series. It was originally broadcast as six 70-minute episodes (90 minutes on ITV with ads?), but has been recut into eight 55-minute episodes, perhaps for international broadcast. They've been showing it here in Australia recently, and Fleur is born at the end of episode 8 as this article states. I shall see whether the second series runs to 4 episodes, or longer...

Indeed, To Let ran to 5 episodes, rather than 4, bringing the total to 13 rather than 10. Allegedrussian (talk) 05:05, 21 December 2012 (UTC)
A series of 13 one-hour-length episodes shouldn't be called 'miniseries', but - series. Miniseries is by some logic max 8 episodes (most often 3-6 episodes). (talk) 01:22, 24 July 2018 (UTC)


Does anyone know who played Fleur? It's not on here, and not on IMDB, but as I remember it her part was quite significant? Dingbats (talk) 22:48, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

I added the info on Fleur, Jon and Michael. (talk) 01:18, 24 July 2018 (UTC)

Broadcast dates[edit]

Please add original broadcast dates of each episode, and the lengths of the episodes as broadcast originally in the UK.- (talk) 21:25, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
