Sink the Bismarck! by Lewis Gilbert( Visual )

21 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bismarck was the fabled German battleship of World War II. This film traces the "life" of the Bismarck from its launching (courtesy of newsreel footage) through its many battles and narrow escapes, concluding with its far-from-inevitable sinking in the Spring of 1941. The story concentrates on a British intelligence captain, who has lost his family in the London blitz and thus has a personal reason for seeing the Bismarck destroyed. The captain's tireless efforts are abetted by the love and support of a female naval officer. The climactic sinking is deftly assembled from stock footage and newly shot scenes of expertly delineated scale models

The Forsyte saga by John Galsworthy( Visual )

"In 1969, an internationally acclaimed BBC show began airing on the fledgling public broadcasting network. The Forsyte Saga, in telling the remarkable story of a nouveau riche English family, introduced America to a new kind of TV. Millions of Americans devoted the next half-year of their lives to following the frank treatment of all sins, foibles and peccadilloes of the Forsytes and their circle. The passing decades can never the erase the memory of their extraordinary evenings with the Forsytes: Kenneth More as Jo, the philosophical outsider; Eric Porter as Soames, the grasping man of property; Nyree Dawn Porter as Irene, "born to be loved and to love" and in later episodes, Susan Hampshire in an Emmy-winning performance as Fleur, Soame's 'restless' daughter. The series was so popular that Masterpiece Theatre was created to meet the new demand for great literary adaptations. With 150 characters, 2,000 separate costumes and over 100 sets, this sprawling yet intimate saga continues to move, provoke and entrance viewers today."--Publisher
