The first photo of Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter as screen legends Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor has been released.

The duo play "Hollywood's most famous, volatile on-again-off-again lovers" in Burton and Taylor, a new 90-minute drama for BBC Four, which is co-produced by BBC America.

The film, the BBC says, "follows their private and public relationship played out against their ill-fated appearance in a 1983 revival of Noel Coward's stage play, Private Lives".

It is directed by Richard Laxton (Him & Her, Accused) and written by William Ivory (Made in Dagenham, Going for Gold).

A transmission date has yet to be announced.
