Synopsis:
The classic BBC dramatisation of Tolstoy's epic story of love and loss set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Oscar-winning actor Anthony Hopkins heads the cast as the soul-searching Pierre Bezuhov; Morag Hood is the impulsive and beautiful Natasha Rostova; Alan Dobie is the dour but heroic Andrei Bolkonsky; and David Swift is Napoleon, whose decision to invade Russia in 1812 has far-reaching consequences for Pierre and the Rostov and Bolkonsky families. This twenty-part serial was the vision of its producer David Conroy whose principal aim was to transfer the rich characterisation and incident from Tolstoy's greatest novel to fifteen hours of television drama.
Scripted by Jack Pulman and directed by John Davies, Conroy's War And Peace boasts superb acting, award-winning design and breathtaking battle sequences which were filmed in former Yugoslavia.
