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.
