Description
This Emmy Award–winning 1969 BBC serial about the life and times of John Churchill, first Duke of Marlborough, and his wife, Sarah, is distinctive in that it was based on Winston Churchill's biography of his ancestor and was the debut program on PBS's Masterpiece Theater. In following John and Sarah from their meeting in 1673 until a time shortly before the duke's death in 1722, the series depicts a goodly number of kings, queens, politicians, and courtiers. Susan Hampshire, who was incandescent in another great BBC series, The Pallisers, nearly steals the show. (The bonuses include an interview with her and a sampling of the Churchills' love letters.) Look for another member of Britain's elite acting corps: the late, great Margaret Tyzack as Princess Anne.

"Rich in wit, lust, love, ambition, intrigue."—Sunday Times (U.K.)
