5.0 out of 5 stars The best adaptation! 25 Jan 2013
Format:DVD
I've seen four versions of The Prince and the Pauper and this is my favourite by some way. Unlike a number of other versions, this one combines very good acting with sound production. Directed by Julian Fellows, this was first shown as a six part series on BBC1. The street scenes are realistic, the action engaging and the retelling truest to the book.

This version, being six half-hour episodes is great to show schoolchildren and a good way to introduce them to both Mark Twain (the story's writer) and aspects of Tudor history.

I spent a number of years searching for this version of the story and, when I found it, it was only available in Germany at a cost of 17 pounds. It was worth it! Now it is cheaperand much more easy to find. I highly recommend this DVD for anyone who wishes their children to see British drama at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars the prince and the pauper 16 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The best version of this story I've seen. My only criticism is the information on the box re `cast` is incorrect ie Miranda Richardson, Bill Nighy etc obviously refers to another film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb version of the story 11 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this version of the Prince and the Pauper when it was first broadcast. I enjoyed it greatly then, and was so pleased to find it now available on DVD. As others have said, this is very well produced. I even love the opening titles and music.

If you are looking for something that Modern historians would regard as 'authentic', then I doubt that this is it. But who cares? I must have watched this a dozen times now. Go for it.

For personal reasons I love this series as it is my son that is the baby pauper. My video has worn out so I was so pleased to find this.
