TV Drama

TV Drama will generally include a story development with a beginning, middle and an end. In the more conventional sense, dramatic presentations include the portrayal of characters, settings, life situations and stories in the course of a theatrical performance. Both made for TV Drama Films as well as TV Drama Series reside here, hence many fondly remembered highlights are to be found including "I Cladius", "Hornblower", "Edge of Darkness", "Boys From The Blackstuff", "Roots" and "Shogun". Scrolling the "Television Shows" function may also prove helpfull. Right: "Shogun" Poster
