Becket by Peter Glenville( visu )
2 editions published between 1964 and 2007 in English and held by 1,503 libraries worldwide
Despite differences in rank and background, King Henry II and Thomas Becket are lifelong friends. The King is in constant conflict with the Church, which refuses to contribute financing to his wars in France, and jealously guards the tax-free status granted it by previous monarchs. When the Archbishop of Canterbury dies, Henry has a brilliant idea: rather than another pious cleric loyal to Rome, he will appoint his old friend, Thomas Becket--technically a deacon--to the post. Unfortunately, Becket takes the job seriously, holding devotion to God and the Church above his loyalty to the throne, or the person of its inhabitant. In opposition to Henry, he proves abler than his predecessors do, and the clash of two powerful personalities leads to destruction

Shakespeare's An age of kings by William Shakespeare( visu )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 286 libraries worldwide
"When An Age of Kings was first broadcast, it was the most conceptually ambitious Shakespeare project ever attempted for either film or television. Its fifteen parts encompassed Richard II, both parts of Henry IV, Henry V, all three parts of Henry VI and Richard III, effectively presenting a chronological history of British royalty from 1377 to 1485. An Age of Kings' adapter Eric Crozier cut the text into schedule-friendly 60 and 75 minute episodes. These mostly comprised half a complete play, though Henry VI Part I was reduced to a single hour-long episode."--British FiIm Institute

London in the 1840s is the setting for this British horror film starring Boris Karloff as Dr. Thomas Bolton, an eminent surgeon determined to discover an effective anesthetic to relieve his patients suffering. Unusual for its time, the film deals with the consequences of drug addiction, Boris Karloff gives one of his finest performances as the Doctor experimenting on himself who becomes addicted and finally destroys his own career in his relentless pursuit of the elusive anesthetic gas. Much of the story takes place in the slum area of old London known as the Seven Dials, hence the film's original title The Doctor of Seven Dials, a curious mix of horror and historical drama
