VIBE – Thursdays from 8 September, 8.30pm (Sunday encore, 9.30pm)

Based on the best-selling novel by Shirley Conran, this two part miniseries from 1984 reveals with extravagance and panache the shocking lengths to which a daughter will go to punish the mother she’s never known and find out “Which of you three bitches is my mother?” A now famous young movie star (Phoebe Cates, Fast Times At Ridgemont High) travels the world in a glamorous, jet-setting quest to learn which of three powerful, internationally renowned women is her mother – the woman who abandoned her at birth, leaving her to be seduced and exploited before growing into an international celebrity, while knowing nothing more about herself than a name on her birth certificate: Lucinda Lace. Look out for murder mystery maven Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote) as Aunt Hortense.
