Napoleon

A four-hour portrait of the conqueror from Corsica (1769-1821), 'one of the most important figures who ever lived,' says writer-director David Grubin. The vivid and lavish series features atmospheric re-creations and paintings by such artists as Ingres, Goya and David to complement commentary by French, English and American historians.
