Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher DVD Review



Synopsis: Bringing together three outstanding BBC productions, The Rise and Fall of Margaret Thatcher provides a unique insight into the fascinating life of one of the most significant political figures in British history.The Long Walk to Finchley begins on the night Thatcher met her husband-to-be Denis. The film shows Margaret's steely determination to get selected to a "winnable" Tory seat in the fifties and imagines what might have gone on behind-the-scenes during her ten-year struggle to gain a seat in Parliament. The Falkland's Play portrays the backroom story of Thatcher's war. A play that was once deemed too controversial to produce provides a gripping account of how Margaret Thatcher and her government faced one of biggest crises in foreign affairs. Finally, Margaret examines Thatcher's last days in power. The film paints a detailed and compelling portrait of one of the most formidable characters in British politics. Showing at once her strengths and fatal flaws, the film ultimately reveals that the very aspects of her character that helped her secure power were also the ones that ensured her downfall.

Review: This BBC DVD collects three of the best productions on Margaret Thatcher.  These are all very good features in their own rights.  Our favorite is definately 'The Long Walk to Finchley', but all three films do a wonderful job of showing various stages of the legendary Thatcher's life and tribulations.  Her character, her adversity and her achievements are gloriously showcased in this DVD set.  This one is a must watch for anyone interested in Thatcher or political history in general.
