The Name Of The Rose
Two part dramatisation of the Umberto Eco novel

Umberto Eco's enigmatic murder mystery charts seven fateful days in the life of a medieval abbey in Italy. Dramatized by Chris Dolan, produced and directed by Bruce Young.

Episode 1: As monks from all over Europe gather to resolve the power struggle between the Pope and the Holy Roman Emperor, a young monk is found dead. The Abbot fears either murder or witchcraft, and asks William of Baskerville to investigate.
