Two DVD sets are coming soon of TV programs that dramatize Winston Churchill's life and times in the decade before WWII. One is last year's HBO TV show "The Gathering Storm" starring Albert Finney. This is by far the shorter of the two clocking at 90 minutes. Shot in 1:1.85 it will be an anamorphic disc from Warners. The other is a British TV miniseries called "Winston Churchill: the Wilderness Years" starring Robert Hardy. This clocks in at 390 minutes. Shot in 1:1.33, it will be a 2 disc set from Wellspring. There exists a truncated 180 minute version on a Media Blasters single disc that was issued about a year ago: be careful preordering this title! I remember the Robert Hardy series from 20 years ago. To this day I can't get the theme music out of my head. I missed the Finney HBO release last year. Although it won several Emmys, those who have seen both have very much favored the Hardy series. I'm planning to get it and pass on the Finney show. Any comments about this?
