Immerse yourself in Sebastian Faulks' epic love story Birdsong, set against the First World War and masterfully adapted by Abi Morgan, as it is released on to Blu-ray and DVD from Universal Playback on 12th March 2012.

The captivating two-part film moves between 1910 and 1916, telling a powerful story of a young Englishman called Stephen Wraysford (rising star Eddie Redmayne, My Week with Marilyn, The Pillars of the Earth) who moves to Amiens in Northern France to work with the Azaire family. During his stay he embarks on a passionate, all-consuming love affair with Isabelle Azaire (Clémence Poésy, In Bruges, Harry Potter) but the relationship comes to fateful end.

Years later, Stephen finds himself serving in the British Army in the very same place he once experienced his greatest love. As he battles through the war, amidst the blood and carnage of the trenches, he meets Jack Firebrace (Joseph Mawle, Game of Thrones, The Awakening), a tunneller who unexpectedly helps him endure the pain of war and find peace with his feelings.

Take home and experience the compelling journey of love and war with special behind-the-scenes features: The Love Story, The War Story and behind-the-scenes onset footage. Receiving widespread critical acclaim in the national press, The Daily Telegraph called it "an elegiac, lyrical film with which the next generation can associate the war".

  • The Love Story - Stars of Birdsong, Eddie Redmayne and Clémence Poésy, together with Director Philip Martin and Producer Lynn Horsford, discuss the powerful love affair between Stephen and Isabelle and how it has been translated from the page to the screen
  • The War Story - Eddie Redmayne, Joseph Mawle and Director Philip Martin talk about their personal experiences of portraying the First World War in Birdsong. For Eddie and Joseph, a visit to recently excavated First World War tunnels in France provides particular inspiration and understanding of what the soldiers and tunnellers underwent during the war
  • On Set - A chance to see how the stunning look of Birdsong was achieved, including a tour of the trenches set and interviews with the team behind the sets, costumes and special effects
