The Master Builder

1958 NR

Arrogant middle-aged architect Halvard resists the efforts of his dying colleague Knut to secure a place in the firm for Knut's son Ragnar, also a talented architect. Meanwhile, Halvard's years of tireless work have alienated him from his wife Aline. The BBC presents two electrifying adaptations of the Henrik Ibsen play -- a 1958 version starring Donald Wolfit and Mai Zetterling, and a 1988 version with Leo McKern and Miranda Richardson.
