BAFTA winner Peter Egan (Chariots of Fire), Oscar and Primetime Emmy nominee Susannah York (Superman) and Nigel Davenport (Chariots of Fire) star in the BAFTA winning eight-part historical drama, Prince Regent: The Complete Series.

Transmitted by the BBC in 1979, the series depicts the life and times of George IV (1762-1830) from his early days of debauchery, his ascent to the throne as Prince Regent and his reign as King. Covering his famously dissolute lifestyle including his two marriages (one legal, one not), his mistresses, the famous men of his day and the over-indulgence and frustration of waiting for his father George III to die or remain mad; this sumptuous series will be available on DVD from 17 October 2016.

Directed by BAFTA winner Michael Simpson (The Bill) and also featuring Patsy Kensit (Holby City) and Cherie Lunghi (Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein).
