Disraeli: The Complete Series
Benjamin Disraeli went down in history as one of the most colourful and controversial politicians ever to walk the corridors of power. A staunch British imperialist, his work on projects such as the Suez Canal have left a legacy very few Prime Ministers have matched. Turbulent, astute, tenacious and yet easily hurt, this outstanding television series tells the intimate story of his long and determined rise to power against overwhelming odds.
Written by the Oscar-nominated David Butler (Jesus of Nazareth) and directed by Claude Whitham (All Creatures Great and Small), DISRAELI - THE COMPLETE SERIES also features sterling performances from Patricia Hodge (Rumpole of the Bailey), Anton Rogers (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), William Russell (Dr Who) and Rosemary Leach (The Winslow Boy, To Sir, With Love) as Queen Victoria.
DISRAELI – THE COMPLETE SERIES also includes a stills gallery, and will appeal to all fans of classic British historical dramas like Upstairs Downstairs and Edward and Mrs Simpson.
