BBC unveil first look at Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter’s Burton and Taylor

First trailers shows the legendary actors brought to life in BBC biopic

A new trailer for the BBC4 biopic Burton and Taylor shows Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West taking on the role of the couple with the infamous romantic past, which saw them married and divorced twice within 12 years.


As the two prepare for Broadway as a once-again divorced couple for Noel Coward’s 1983 revival of Private Lives, their on-again-off-again relationship is played out once more, but this time on centre stage in front of a live audience.


The film will be aired in the UK on BBC4 later this year as one of the channel’s last original dramas.
