One of the better Biography channel efforts, a well balanced account of the life and legend of T E Lawrence from his upbringing to Lawrence of Arabia and attempts to escape his moniker.Perhaps not as revealing as other writers and adventurers have made out Lawrence's life despite the latters' inclusion, Lawrence himself confused his own account and by all accounts his biographers attempts as well. This account tries to give a flavour of the time he lived in and the arguments among his supporters and detractors, the excerpts from Lean's Lawrence of Arabia may be most people's point of reference and may make wonderful cinema, but hardly scratches the surface of Lawrence the enigma.The episode in the Churchill's Bodyguard series dealing with Churchill's foray into 1920's Middle East politics for which Lawrence was Chuchill's adviser is also recommended. A worthy effort determined not to be side tracked by some of the wilder accounts of Lawrence's life lets the viewer make up their own mind. Is this Lawrence? Perhaps, perhaps not. A documentary as frustrating as its subject.
