The Duchess of Duke Street (1977)

Concept and creative process

Title sequence for an Edwardian costume drama serial based around the life and times of Louisa Leyton and her famous hotel The Bentinck. I based the title on Alphonse Mucha’s posters, which were of the period, but in a style suitable for TV. Contemporary stills of Edwardian daily life were matted into the cartouche of the title logo to set the scene.
