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.

T E Lawrence was a complex and fascinating man and this documentary makes a pretty good attempt at displaying the human being behind the "Uncrowned King of Arabia". It explores the historical background of the Middle East leading up to and following the First World War and helps explain why Lawrence became so reclusive in later life.
David Lean made a great film about Lawrence the legend; this shows Lawrence the man, so is worth watching in its own right.
I was tempted to give this five stars to counter the person who ordered it by mistake, but decided to give it the four it deserves. It isn't perfect, there are a lot of questions unanswered (probably because the information doesn't exist) but it is good.

First impression on viewing this dvd was that there was a little too much emphasis on Lawrence's sexuality, which one is constantly being reminded of throughout, and not enough about his life after his wartime exploits from 1918 to 1935. Perhaps, ideally, there should have been a second dvd dealing with the latter period. Although it is essential to know about his sexuality to understand his complex character, it was a only a small part of one of the most fascinating lives of the 20th century.
Throughout the latter period he served in the Tank Corp as a private and twice in the RAF as an aircraftsman. His friendships and correspondents during this time included Mr and Mrs George Bernard Shaw, Thomas Hardy, Henry Williamson, E.M. Forster, Robert Graves, Winston Churchill, Lord Trenchard, Lady Astor and a host of other famous names.
Perhaps it's about time a whole TV series was devoted to this incredible man.
