Beau Geste (BBC)

Beau Geste (BBC)

"Beau Geste" is a BBC television mini-series, based on the novel by P. C. Wren. The series aired in 1982 and starred Benedict Taylor, Anthony Calf and Jonathon Morris as the three brothers.


Although minor plot points separate the versions, all of the versions share a common element of a stolen gem, which one of the Geste brothers, Beau Geste, is thought to have stolen from his adoptive family.
