Tess of the d'Urbervilles will be shown in the USA this month on PBS. I believe the first episode is on Sunday 4 January.
It's a good adaptation, but be warned, as it's a Thomas Hardy book there ain't many laughs.
I was very impressed with Gemma Arterton as Tess. Here she is with Alec. (Boo, hiss!)
