Poor Recording Quality Mars Excellent Performance

"Very accurate portrayal of portions of Nelson's life. The Battle of Trafalgar tape is the best battle renactment I have ever seen. The quality of the tape recording, however, is poor. Rather than using the standard speed for each of the four one-hour episodes, the production is recorded in extended play. At that speed, the entire series could have been put on one two-hour tape (holding six hours of information at the slowest speed). This was a disappointment considering the price of the recording."
The DVD quality is great!

Not What I Expected

"I got this DVD expecting a film depicting Nelson the war hero depicted by those closest to him. What I got was a film showing how Nelson was a amoral adulterer who happened to be good at naval combat. The film only depicts his life after the battle of the Nile, which leaves out much of his career, and the vast majority of the film consists of his tattered home life, his sexual exploits with his mistress, or him trying to excuse his actions to the captain of his flagship. I did enjoy the combat scene they did have, as it did have an effective depiction as to what life was like on the ship for the average seaman. Over all the acting was good, but the content left much to be desired for those looking for a military history, but you like your soaps this may just be for you."
