Post I Remember Nelson (1981)
Instead of my weekend visit to the harbor, I spent some time at the mall (eek). I picked up the DVD set of I Remember Nelson. For those who haven't seen the TV series (shown in the UK in 1981 and in the US on PBS in 1982), it's a look at Nelson through the eyes of Lady Nelson, Sir William Hamilton, Captain Thomas Masterman Hardy, and William Blackie (a seaman on Victory).

I thought it was well done, in terms of showing the good and bad sides of Nelson's persona.

Particularly interesting was the bit of Sir William Hamilton's narrative that dealt with Admiral Francesco Caracciolo and Nelson's treatment of him.

Has anyone else seen this series? Thoughts?

Regret I haven't seen it. I'll keep an eye out for it.

Looks like the 2006 release of this is still available through Amazon (US). I put it on my Amazon Wish List.

Mil and Don,

I am interested in hearing your thoughts about the series once you see it. We all know the story, so at least there are no spoilers! :D
