All three episodes from the television mini-series based on Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel.
Episode 1 The universe is ruled by an empire of noble groups: The Bene Gesserit, The Guild and The Great Houses, who compete for control of the planets, in particular the desert planet, Arrakis and the harvesting of "spice" a rare, mind-enhancing element, enabling space travel. Emperor Shaddam IV has assigned Duke Leto Atreides (William Hurt) and his family to take charge of Arrakis and the production of "spice". However, Leto's bitter enemy the evil Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Ian McNeice), who formerly ruled the planet, vows to win it back. Episode 2 The evil Baron Harkonnen hands rulership of Arrakis to his brutal nephew Rabban. But Paul Atreides and his mother Jessica have survived their escape into the inhospitable desert with the help of the Fremen - a race of desert nomads. The strengthening power of "spice" enables Paul to establish himself as the Fremen leader, Muad'dib. Whilst Paul struggles with the realisation of his fate, the Fremen rejoice in the new leader, who they believe will finally free them from oppression... Episode 3 Paul Atreides and his army of Fremen create havoc on Arrakis and threaten to stop the flow of the "spice" being harvested by the Harkonnen. The Emperor, Baron Harkonnen and even the Bene Gesserit sisterhood ara pressing for war. A massive fleet of spaceships and imperial troops of the Empire invade the desert planet. Paul increases his strength by drinking from the "Water of Life". With the support of the Fremen, Paul attacks the Empire in a bloody battle.
