After a long "drought," the last few years have been a boon for fans and lovers of the Don Cossack Choir. A number of releases of rarely heard recordings have appeared on CD, and now comes an even greater "collectors' prize" -- a full-length DVD featuring rare videos of the choir from 1963 through 1969, performing 33 of its most popular selections. Listening to the Don Cossack Choir is one thing. Seeing Serge Jaroff's inimitable conducting gestures face-on and the expressions on the singers' faces, often in close-up, adds an altogether different dimension to the experience. Discover why this choir was arguably the most widely heard and wildly famous Russian musical act in history, beginning their existence as penniless refugees in a Turkish internment camp and going on to sing more than 10,000 concerts throughout the world over a 60-year period.--V.M.

Tony Palmer’s epic film was made in 1982/3 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Wagner’s death. Filmed in 200 locations throughout Europe, many where the actual historical events took place, with a team from 19 different countries, the entire production was completed in less than a year. Sadly Wagner was to be Richard Burton’s last major role, but the stellar cast - including Laurence Oliver, John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, Vanessa Redgrave, László Gállfi, Gemma Craven, Ekkehardt Schall, Richard Pasco, Marthe Keller, Gabriel Byrne, Franco Nero, Ronald Pickup, Corin Redgrave, Cyril Cusack, Prunella Scales, Andrew Cruickshank, Joan Greenwood, Liza Goddard, Bill Fraser, Arthur Lowe, Joan Plowright, with composer Sir William Walton in a cameo role - assembled partly because of him.
Only now is the film being released on DVD as its director Tony Palmer wishes it to be viewed. Previously it’s been seen in badly edited versions and been made available on DVD (reproduced from poor-quality VHSs) with sub-standard pictures and sound. Finally, here is the restored presentation as it was originally edited by Tony Palmer in its complete 7 hours 46 minutes duration, issued in wide-screen, re-mastered in Hi-Definition. The music, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Georg Solti with singers including Dame Gwyneth Jones and Peter Hofmann, has never sounded better, and the astonishing images of cameramen Vittorio Storaro and Nic Knowland have never looked better.
The script by Charles Wood remains a miracle of historical compression and accuracy, given that Wagner himself was an appalling fantasist and the truth often hard to ascertain.
And Richard Burton, who towers above the production, reminds us what a great actor he was. This is a fitting tribute to his - and to Wagner’s - genius.

Exhaustive TV biopic of the German composer with Richard Burton in the title role. Recognised early in his career for his groundbreaking talents, Wagner is feted by European society until his scandalous and radical political views force him into exile in Zurich. There he meets the young Nietzsche (Ronald Pickup), and has a major influence on the philosopher. At the same time, Wagner begins a scandalous relationship with the composer Liszt's illigitimate daughter. Reactionary, anti-semitic and obsessed with money, Wagner still goes on to prove himself as a major force in German and European culture after completing his epic 'Ring' cycle of operas.

Melvyn Bragg has run The South Bank Show for over 30 years, producing in all over 250 films. Sadly, ITV has now decided to axe the show, so to celebrate the final season of The South Bank Show, a brilliant collection of Tony Palmer's films made for The South Bank Show is being released in a special commemorative boxset.
The eleven films include the Italia Prize-winning definitive portraits of Benjamin Britten, William Walton and Maria Callas; the New York Film & TV Festival Gold medal winners about Stravinsky, Margot Fonteyn and Malcolm Arnold; and the controversial films about Gorecki, John Adams and Berlioz. Films about the great American soprano Renée Fleming and the original 'Phantom of the Opera' Michael Crawford complete the package.
As Bragg says: "Palmer's films for me have been one of the highlights of every season since we began."
