Synopsis:
The name of Benjamin Disraeli (Ian McShane) has gone down in history - not only because of his political achievements but also his colourful personality. He was the most flamboyant, theatrical and controversial figure ever to stride across the political scene during the nineteenth century - turbulent, astute, tenacious yet easily and often hurt. This outstanding television series tells the intimate story of his long and determined rise to power against overwhelming odds.

Not impressed - Disraeli review by TF

Spoiler Alert
16/11/2020

I did watch this DVD but didn't learn anything from it that I don't remember from my history class 40+ years ago, just broad stereotypes.

The emphasis of the production seemed to be on costume and drama - polite gossip and inuendo, lots of waving fans, wigs and powder.

Historically and politically they were exciting times for an upstart Jew - as I am too - but none of that came across.
