A forlorn art curator tries to hide the entire collection of London’s National Gallery near an eccentric, inquisitive village.

A Welsh village learns that London’s National Gallery is storing its entire art collection in a nearby mine during the museum’s renovations — leading to curious encounters between the village locals and the gallery’s urbane, lovelorn curator. Trevor Eve (MASTERPIECE “David Copperfield”) and Eve Myles (MASTERPIECE “Little Dorrit”) star in this gentle comedy, based on Frank Cottrell Boyce’s best-selling novel. David Tennant hosts.

MASTERPIECE: CONTEMPORARY "Framed" airs Sunday, December 26 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).
