from £22.99 | Saving you £0.00 (0.00%) | RRP
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, Lszl Gllfi, 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.

What better way could there have been to end it all? After 22 years the final four Mission shows at London's Shepherds Bush Empire was a glorious celebratory occasion as I'd hoped it would be when I agreed to play the shows and the memory will live with me for a very long time. It was fantastic to see so many familiar faces in the audience on each of the four nights and to see so many people that we'd met on our travels around the world in the preceding years. I personally know of people that came for the final shows from as far as USA Canada Australia Brazil Argentina Japan and South Africa as well as our European friends that made the journey from across the channel.

She released seven studio albums (And three movie soundtrack albums), all of which have diamond, multi-platinum, platinum or gold certification. This fascinating programme tells her story. Brought up around music from an early age thanks to her Mum Cissy Houston, her cousin Dionne Warwick and her honorary aunt Aretha Franklin, Whitney started singing as a soloist at the age of 11. But it wasn't until 1983 that Clive Davis at Arista Records, having been so impressed with Whitney, offered her a worldwide recording contract. The rest as they say is history. Charting her rise to fame from the very start this programme takes an in depth look at how Whitney Houston became the worldwide phenomenon we all know. Not only does it take a look at her amazing music career but it also touches on her acting career with films such as The Bodyguard, her marriage to Bobby Brown and ultimately her death in February 2012. Featuring some of her greatest songs including This l Always Love You, Greatest Love of All, You Give Good Love, Saving All My Love, How Will I Know?, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, I’m Your Baby Tonight, Wanna Be Startin', Somethin, I Look to You and One of Those Days. This DVD also includes footage from the now infamous Diane Sawyer interview in 2002 as well as the Oprah Winfrey Show interview from 2009. This tribute offers an intimate look into the life of a legend whose beauty and talent helped to shape the music industry and inspired millions. This is the Story of Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston Story Whitney Elizabeth Houston, known as 'The Voice' is one of the most successful pop stars of all time with some 170 million records sold. Signed by the legendary Clive Davis, she scorched the charts with such hits as You Give Good Love, I Wanna Dance with Somebody Greatest Love of All and I will always love you from the hit 1992 movie 'The Bodyguard'. But her personal life was less successful. She married Bobby Brown in 1992 and theirs has been a tumultuous relationship plagued by persistent rumours of drug abuse. They starred in a TV show Being Bobby Brown that did more to harm Whitney's career than help it. In 2007, the couple filed for divorce and Whitney was awarded custody of their daughter Bobby Kristina. In the final analysis, this is the story of a woman who found unimaginable success on the stage, but failed to find happiness away from the spotlight. This is her amazing story.
