Pick of the Day

The Luminaries, 9.00pm, BBC One

This is a joint British and New Zealand drama television miniseries based on Eleanor Catton's Man Booker-prize winning 2013 novel of the same name.

The series is centred around a young adventurer named Anna Wetherall (played by Dubliner Eve Hewson), who has travelled from the United Kingdom to start a new life on the South Island's West Coast.

The epic drama tells the 19th-century tale of love, murder and revenge as men and women travel across the world to make their fortunes and reinvent themselves.

As anyone who’\s ever watched TV on a Sunday night knows, the one thing the BBC do splendidly is period drama - and this promises to be up there with the best of them.
