War and Peace - the end

We've finally reached the end of our DVD marathon with War and Peace.  It's only the second time I've seen the series, the first being when it showed in 1972.

Of course like with any older work it's been fun spotting actors now mega famous like Antony Hopkins , long gone actors and actors who have disappeared seemingly without trace.   I enjoyed especially seeing Alan Dobie again, one of my favourite actors.

What struck us was how leisured the story was in the way it unfolded.  And on a practical note how easy it was to read the credits unlike today when they whizz past and you have very little chance to appreciate who has done what work.
