Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Seen on Masterpiece Theatre in 1982 this critically acclaimed miniseries boasts a contemporary storytelling approach. Each of the four episodes takes the viewpoint of a different person close to Lord Nelson. Together, his betrayed wife, the friend whom he cuckolded, the ambivalent captain of his flagship, and an ordinary seaman paint an unconventional portrait of an all-too-human hero. Riveting performances by Kenneth Colley (Monty Pythons Life of Brian), Geraldine James (The Jewel in the Crown), Tim Pigott-Smith (V for Vendetta), and Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia) add to the sexual and political intrigue.

Very accurate portrayal of portions of Nelson's life. The Battle of Trafalgar tape is the best battle renactment I have ever seen. The quality of the tape recording, however, is poor. Rather than using the standard speed for each of the four one-hour episodes, the production is recorded in extended play. At that speed, the entire series could have been put on one two-hour tape (holding six hours of information at the slowest speed). This was a disappointment considering the price of the recording.

This superb series chronicles various aspects of Nelson's life as he might have been seen by those close to him as well as the common seaman. Brilliantly acted by stock BBC actors at the time in the early 1980s you won't find a better quality production. Sure, it might be lacking some hi-tech stuff for today, but the acting and screen writing is superb.

The series mostly touches on Nelson's latter period just before and including Trafalgar. We see him through the eyes of his first wife, Sir Hamilton, Captain Hardy and finally just a common seaman at the great battle. These individuals enable us to see different sides of the great hero's life. What this series shows was that Nelson was a lively, socialable person who enjoyed diversion and sensual delights. The rigors of naval warfare in the Napoleonic period had certainly taken its toll on his first marriage which is touchingly seen in the first episode.

How Nelson met Emma Hamilton is the subject of the 2nd episode which takes us back a number of years in time to the mid 1790s. Here we find England was trying to support the duchy of Naples against the Napoleonic tide of invasion in Italy. There is a devastating portrait of the petty Bourbon King and Queen who ruled the duchy in this period. We also meet Sir Hamilton and through him see how Nelson get to know Emma. Those who are use to the more elegant portrayal of Lady Emma Hamilton a la Vivian Leigh from the 1930s might be in for a shock here. This Emma is a bit more pleasantly plump, but is more sensual and earthy and probably a more accurate look at her. We certainly get to see the interesting relationship that developed between the three of them.

The story is long on his personal life, the wife/girlfriend and short on naval history. Having said that, I thought the final scenes were really well done-the destruction of the french fleet in the action where Nelson was killed. A lot of detail of the working of the individual gun crews on the lower decks during the battle--this was great stuff!

I saw I remember Nelson on TV many years ago, and never saw it again until I got this DVD. It is a strong, well-acted series that is a study of heroism, and is very historically accurate. I liked how four different people had their views of Nelson shown. I found the quality of the DVD very good.

I had excepted more of a story line rather than a straight documentary. I think it would be difficult to keep students' attention in such an "informative only" format.
