WITF will encore Victor Hugo's masterpiece in a six-part adaptation by multi- award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies.

Les Misérables on Masterpiece stars Dominic West as fugitive Jean Valjean, with David Oyelowo as his pursuer Inspector Javert and Lily Collins as the luckless single mother Fantine. Ellie Bamber and Josh O'Connor costar as the young lovers Cosette and Marius.

Love, death, and the struggle for social justice in early 19th-century France feature in this beautifully faithful retelling of one of the world's most beloved stories.

Watch all six episodes of Les Misérables on Masterpiece Sunday June 2 beginning at 12:30pm. 

The day concludes with the Les Misérables 25th Anniversary Concert at the O2 at 9:00pm. Celebrate the legendary musical with a stellar cast including Alfie Boe, Nick Jonas, Lea Salonga, Colm Wilkinson, Norm Lewis and Ramin Karimloo. Staged by producer Cameron Mackintosh, the concert was filmed at London's O2 Arena.
