Disraeli (TV) in March
Network have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Disraeli – The Complete Series for 26th March 2007 priced at £19.99.

A staunch British imperialist, his work on projects such as the Suez Canal have left a legacy very few Prime Ministers have matched.

Written by the Oscar-nominated David Butler (Jesus of Nazareth) and directed by Claude Whitham (All Creatures Great and Small) the series stars Ian McShane in the title role.
