Actor Kenneth Colley earned favorable reviews for his portrayal of the English Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson in this 1982 four part mini-series. The episodes focuses on the life of the extraordinary naval leader who confronted Napoleon's navy at the Battle of Trafalgar. Each of the four episodes reportedly viewed him from a slightly different perspective. The series endeavored to portray Admiral Nelson in non-heroic terms and therefore included a lot of material detailing an adulterous romantic relationship between Horatio Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton (played by Geraldine James), the wife of another British military officer. There is a poignant final scene.
