Corsage - Sunday 29th January 5pm

Originally called 'Corset', this period drama puts a finger up to other period dramas just as Empress Elisabeth of Austria tries to do as she turns 40 and is deemed to be 'old': she refuses to accept this and wears her corset tighter each day to keep her figure and beauty as it has been, whilst finding more and more ways to keep her status in society and not be consigned to irrelevance.

"It’s riveting stuff, aided by Vicky Krieps’s bold and brilliant turn." - Anna Smith, Time Out
