Shaka Zulu Review
At the beginning of the 19th century, Zulu chieftain Shaka unites the warring tribes and challenges the forces of British colonialism.
Filmed on location in South Africa with a cast including Henry Cele as Shaka and Edward Fox, Robert Powell, and Christopher Lee, this 1986 production is the most repeatedly-screened miniseries in US TV history.
The 4:3 picture is colourful if a little soft, grainy and spotty; sound is Dolby Stereo with the option of DD 5.1 and DTS surround versions. The four-disc box set features all 10 hour-long episodes, interviews, preview reel and stills gallery, but no subtitles. DVD-ROM content includes a synopsis, treatment, character notes, promo art and production notes.
