Product Description

Bouquet of Barbed Wire is a British television series based on a 1969 novel by Andrea Newman.

The series was made by London Weekend Television for ITV in 1976.


The story follows the middle-class Manson family over one hot summer as it is torn apart by the manipulative daughter, Prue (Susan Penhaligon), who, having just begun at university, became pregnant and marries an American, Gavin Sorensen (James Aubrey). Prue's father, Peter (Frank Finlay), cannot contain his jealousy and obsessive love for his daughter which may or may not be more than just parental.

For his part, Gavin is focused on seducing Prue's mother Cassie (Sheila Allen), who obliges as a relief from Peter.

The series was considered highly risqué for the time and a considerable success.
