THE CLASSIC BBC HISTORICAL DRAMA SERIES. A stunning dramatisation of the decline and fall of the Hapsburgs, Romanovs and Hohenzollerns. In the latter half of the 19th Century, three ruling houses dominated Europe: the Hapsburgs of Austria-Hungary, the Romanovs of Russia and Hohenzollerns of Germany. Centuries of despotism, a continued lack of social reform and the advent of the devastating First World War caused the vultures of revolution to start circling. This 13-part epic drama features a who's who of Britain's finest actors, bringing the historical figures richly to life. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE: cast and director interviews, photo gallery.
