Top 150

 Looking for a period drama to watch?
[Part 1 of 2]
Here are some suggestions of some of the ones that I've enjoyed over the years. BBC may be one of the best sources for period films and I already posted a list of BBC Period Dramas, but there are plenty of others to choose from!

This is my list of 150 Top Period Films and Series including those produced by other companies in addition to the BBC. Most of them have been expanded on with pics and links if you check the Film Index.
