In Tolstoy's tempestuous epic of love and war, passion and power, a small circle of aristocrats find their glittering world crumbling as Napoleon's sweeping forces threaten to overwhelm Imperial Russia. Set in the opening decades of the 19th century, War and Peace follows the changing fortunes of brooding military hero Prince Andrej, his bookish friend Pierre and the spirited but naïve Natasha. As Napoleon's armies menace their privileged lives, the horrors of the battlefield reach into Russia's most elegant ballrooms and bedrooms. Starring an international cast including Clémence Poésy (The Tunnel), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), Brenda Blethyn (Pride and Prejudice), Alessio Boni (Caravaggio), Alexander Beyer (Carlos The Jackal) and Ken Duken (Inglourious Basterds), this magnifi cent production was fi lmed on location in Saint Petersburg and Eastern Europe by Oscar -nominated director Robert Dornhelm.

Weather and Warfare dramatically retraces the meteorological forces during battlefield engagements that doomed or saved civilizations. In 1588 more than half of the Spanish Armada, on its way around northern Britain, was destroyed by storms in retreat back to Spain. Napoleon's attack on Russia was stopped cold by winter weather, as was Hitler's siege of Leningrad. In WWI, it was all quiet on the western front during mud season. The miracle at Dunkirk took place under cover of heavy fog, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was launched under cover of Pacific storms and the D-day invasion of Normandy was launched based on the most critical weather forecast in history. 1.

Viscount Wellington and Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte have made their mark as military commanders. Lifelong enemies, they both believe their armies are strong enough to destroy any rival. But in war victory can never be certain. While Wellington's success continues in Spain, Napoleon feels the sting of failure. Yet despite a disastrous Russian campaign and humiliating defeat at Leipzig, he persists in fighting on. With Napoleon's power waning, the newly titled Duke of Wellington is perfectly placed to crush the tyrant. But his enemy refuses to surrender, and so the two giants must face a final reckoning on the bloody battlefield of Waterloo.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Keeble.
