In the early 1970s the BBC produced a series of TV dramas about Henry VIII and his six wives. While the whole production was sequential, each of the six episodes featured a different wife. Henry was played by Keith Michel and some of the actresses were Dorothy Tutin (Anne Boleyn), Annette Crosbie (Catherine of Aragon, and both Donald and Angela Pleasence were in the cast as well.

I have looked everywhere for this series on video or disc but with no luck so far. There was a subsequent film made, also starring Keith Michel but with a different cast and although this seems to be available here and there, it is not the one I want.

Is anyone able to help??

IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0066714/)

Personally I preferred the Rick Wakeman version

That's definitely the one, Onan but I can't buy from a website as I don't use a credit card. The ABC shop here in Perth doesn't have it but that site certainly indicates it's still available.

All clear now, laser ... let me know if you have a prob, someone else couldn't get a message through the other day.

Thanks, UFO ... that is actually the film, not the original series, and ORAC, that's the right one and I see the follow-up, Elizabeth R with Glenda Jackson is there too!
