The Cazalets is a 2001 six-episode television drama series (5 episodes when broadcast in the US) about the life of a large privileged family in the years 1937 to 1942.[1] Most of the action takes place in London, and at the family's large estate in Sussex.

The drama was based on the novels of Elizabeth Jane Howard, and adapted by the screenwriter Douglas Livingstone and directed by Suri Krishnamma. The series was originally produced by Cinema Verity for BBC One and is available on DVD.[2]

A BBC Radio 4 version in 45 episodes, in 5 series, was also produced later, broadcast between December 2012 and April 2014.[3][4]
