Denmark released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Danish ( Subtitles ), Finnish ( Subtitles ), Norwegian ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: A Woman of Substance (1984) Based on the phenomenally successful novel, the sweeping saga of Emma Harte's dazzling climb from impoverished shop girl to head of a vast empire is a celebration of one woman's indomitable spirit. The six-hour miniseries A Woman of Substance aired originally in the United States in November 1984 and earned exceptional ratings. Deborah Kerr and Jenny Seagrove shared the title role of the indominable Emma Harte, and superstar Liam Neeson created the role of Blackie O'Neill. The miniseries earned two Emmy Nominations: one for its star Deborah Kerr and one for the series. Act of Will (1989) Three beautiful women -- grandmother, mother and daughter -- struggle bravely through five eventful decades of hidden love, high drama and sudden death in this, Barbara Taylor Bradford's most stirring tale, based closely on her own remarkable true-life story. Voice of the Heart (1990) Voice of the Heart is the powerful and emotive story of two beautiful, ambitious women whose profound friendship is racked by bitter jealousy and ultimate betrayal. Hold The Dream (1986) Hold the Dream is the long-awaited sequel to A Woman of Substance -- the continuing story of Emma Harte and her granddaughter Paula McGill Fairley, Emma's favorite and chosen heir to the mighty Harte-McGill empires. Paula it is who most clearly resembles that extraordinary matriarch of the dynasty. Accomplished, beautiful, a millionairess, Paula wields immense power at the age of 25; yet the conflicts, the tragedies, the loves and losses that afflict her, mirror those in Emma's life. To Be the Best (1992) Romance, murder, betrayal -- just some of the vital

5.0 out of 5 stars Emma Harte Dynasty 27 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
From very humble beginnings in Yorkshire, Emma Harte has a need to learn as much as possible. She finds a job in a small shop in Leeds and after a while she is able to buy the shop and the shop next door and eventually has quite an empire. She becomes a 'Woman of Substance'.Jenny Seagrove plays the young Emma and Deborah kerr the older Emma and both are excellent. Liam Neeson plays the lifelong good friend of the family. The saga continues with 'Hold The Dream' and 'To Be The Best', with Emma Harte's children and grandchildren at each other's throats. Ambition, jealousy, greed, love and hate make this well worth watching.
Liam Neeson and Anthony Hopkins are excellent too.
'Act Of Will'- Another great story with Victoria Tennant and Elizabeth Hurley as mother and daughter, both are very good.
'Voice Of The Heart'- Lindsay wagner plays an actress with a secret past, has a friend from a fine British family - Victoria Tennant, has a brother who falls in love with the actress.
