Acorn Media have announced the UK DVD release of The Last of the Mohicans on 10th September 2007 priced at £19.99. Adapted from James Fenimore Cooper’s timeless novel, this eight-chapter BBC drama series was originally broadcast in 1971 and is coming to DVD for the first time.
Set in the mid 18th century, during the North American wars when the Native American tribes were caught between the British and the French, this exciting series follows the heroic adventures of “Hawkeye”, and his companions “Chingachook” and “Uncas” – the true last of the Mohicans.
When the daughters of an English colonel are betrayed and captured by “Magua”, their ruthless Huron guide, Hawkeye and the Mohicans rescue them and vow to get them safely back to their father.
