War And Peace - Complete Series (DVD)
The classic Emmy nominated 1972 BBC dramatisation of Tolstoy's epic story of love and loss set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, starring Anthony Hopkins, Morag Hood, Alan Dobie and David Swift.
Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins leads the cast as the soul-searching Pierre Bezuhov, a role which he was a BAFTA for Best Actor in 1973.
This twenty-part serial was produced by David Conroy (Portrait of a Lady, Cold Comfort Farm) whose principle aim was to transfer the rich characterisation and incident from Tolstoy's greatest novel into a great, fifteen hour of television drama.
Scripted by Jack Pulman (I Claudius, The Golden Bowl) and directed by John Davies (The Woodlanders, Germinal), Conroy's War And Peace boasts superb acting, award-winning design (1972 Best Design BAFTA) and breathtaking battle sequences which were filmed in former Yugoslavia.
