The Life and Times of David Lloyd George (2016)
Wednesday 14th September 2016
Philip Madoc gives a career-best performance as one of Britain's most revered, inspiring - and controversial - leaders in The Life and Times of David Lloyd George, the celebrated BBC series released on DVD by Network on 3rd October 2016.
Scripted by BAFTA-winning Elaine Morgan with input from leading historian A.J.P. Taylor - and with famously haunting theme music by Ennio Morricone - The Life and Times of David Lloyd George paints a multifaceted portrait of a political icon who steered Britain through the First World War and its aftermath, and whose pioneering reforms laid the foundations of the welfare state.
Brought up in a remote Welsh village, on his way to the top Lloyd George inspires both hysterical adoration and an enmity bordering on bloodlust. A passionate social reformer, his struggle to lift the spectres of poverty and the workhouse provokes the ire of the political establishment, while his indefatigable womanising fills many a gossip column; his political dexterity as the Liberal prime minister of a wartime coalition government, however, raised him to a new level of power and influence.
