Synopsis:
BBC adaptations of two classic plays by the Irish dramatist George Bernard Shaw.

Arms and the Man (1983)
Shaw took aim at the conventions of love and war, bringing notions of heroism and romance crashing to the ground. As war rages in Bulgaria, a young woman rejoices that her fiance, has led a heroic cavalry charge. But when an enemy soldier takes refuge in her bedroom, he begins a train of events that changes all of their lives...
The Man of Destiny (1981)
One of Shaw's "pleasant plays", 'The Man of Destiny', is a one-act lighthearted comedy of egos and social hypocrisy. Set in 1796 in northern Italy, it features a battle of wits between Napoleon Bonaparte (Simon Callow) and a mysterious, daring woman who has stolen his documents. Can she really challenge the strategic mind of a General still celebrating a famous victory?
