The Big Parade

First World War drama Parade's End is one of the biggest foreign TV series to shoot in Belgium. A collaboration between HBO and the BBC, it was brought to the country, and to Flanders in particular, by a winning combination of locations, financial incentives and entrepreneurial local collaborators.

Text Ian Mundell 

parade's endParade's End is based on a series of four novels from the 1920s by English writer Ford Madox Ford. Set before, during and after the First World War, they explore the inner life of Christopher Tietjens, an Englishman from an old family who is caught between a faithless wife, Sylvia, and his love for a young suffragette, Valentine. Written in a complex, modernist style, the books represent a challenge for any screen adaptation.
