An exquisitely mounted miniseries about the interplay between a black jazz band and the upper crust of English society in the 1930s.

It's the rare TV series that's a feast for the ears.

This show doesn't dance - on the edge, or anywhere else. Instead, it lumbers straight into the tar pit.

The five episodes... are brimming with twists, surprises, delightful set pieces - and some very unexpected performances.

Dancing on the Edge is a thing of beauty to watch, as the scenes of noirish late-night jazz discoveries in 1930s England are so wonderful to behold.
