War And Peace BBC Serial Starring Anthony Hopkins

5 DVD, PAL, Region 2, Run Time: 14 Hours 50 Mins - INCLUDES BOOKLET

The classic BBC dramatisation of Tolstoy's epic story of love and loss set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Oscar-winning actor Anthony Hopkins heads the cast as the soul-searching Pierre Bezuhov (a role for which he won the 1972 Best Actor BAFTA); Morag Hood is the impulsive and beautiful Natasha Rostova; Alan Dobie is the dour but heroic Andrei Bolkonsky; and David Swift is Napoleon, whose decision to invade Russia in 1812 has far-reaching consequences for Pierre and the Rostov and Bolkonsky families.

This twenty-part serial was the vision of its producer 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 to fifteen hours 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.
