A series which hasn`t aged all that well and the staging is looking somewhat cheap and dated. This is an enjoyable enough overview of Disraeli but Ian Mcshane does not convince in the role, the acting is somewhat corny but there are enjoyable aspects and all the key events and figures involved in politics in this period appear. Overall it`s worth getting if you can pick it up around the £7/8 area.

Features an outstanding performance by Ian McShane (in my humble opinion), and has drama production techniques the like of which we will not see in today's TV productions (50fps multi-camera, video-tape recording in the studio and on location, audio you can hear, and a theatre-driven production ethos, rather than today's TV which tries (and mostly fails) to mimic cinematic productions.

Excellent biopic of a charismatic, clever , ambitious and determined man who became UK first Jewish Prime Minister.
Ian mcShane is brilliant. He really is an underrated actor. He is an extremely gifted & talented actor who makes this series great to watch.

A lovely (if dated, hence rather stilted acting) series - and who would have thought that Ian McShane was so heart-stoppingly beautiful as a young actor!

A complete and very realistic portrait of Benjamin Disraeli - the Victorian era romantic and wit who became one of England's greatest political leaders. McShane is at his very best as he portrays a man "climbing to the top of a very greasy pole" as Disraeli described his rise in politics. An excellent supporting cast rounds this detailed portrait. Well worth watching.

Mum and Dad loved it!
If you like period TV dramas from the 1970s such as Upstairs Downstairs you will enjoy this DVD.
