> Masterpiece Theatre # 3706 The Secret Life of Mrs. Beeton
> Just as Nigella Lawson and Martha Stewart have turned Americans and
> Britons into nations of wannabe domestic goddesses, the Victorians
> had their own preacher in the shape of Mrs. Isabella Beeton (Anna
> Madeley, _Inspector Lewis_). How did a woman who couldn't cook
> produce the world's most famous recipe book? Dead by the age of 28,
> this cultural icon was not the dumpy, crinolined matron Britons have
> been led to believe, but instead a sassy, feisty, and very talented
> journalist and editor with an entrepreneurial husband, Sam (JJ Feild,
> _To the Ends of the Earth_). Theirs was an extraordinary marriage,
> the meeting of two creative minds to the enhancement of both. But it
> was the start of this marriage that led to Isabella's untimely death,
> and the revelation of a dark secret. (Closed Captioning) (Stereo)
> (Descriptive Video Service)
