War & Peace Full Episode Guide

  • Pierre is held prisoner by the French and faces a new ordeal as the relentless Russian winter sets in. In the shadow of tragedy, Natasha struggles to see a way forward, while Helene grapples with an awkward dilemma of her own. As the war rages on between the Russians and the French, will our Russian heroes ever find peace again?

  • At the Battle of Borodino, Pierre and Andrei fight on the front line of Russia's greatest struggle against Napoleon. As even Moscow comes under threat from the French army, Natasha and the Rostovs realise they must hurry to pack up the family home and flee the city.

  • After months of waiting, Natasha is frustrated to learn that her wedding to Andrei may be delayed still further. She tries to make a good impression on her new father and sister-in-law, but instead finds herself facing a new temptation in Moscow.

  • After the shock of recent events, Andrei shuts himself away in the countryside until a visit from Pierre and a chance encounter with a stranger make him wonder if his life could still change for the better. Natasha is excited at the prospect of her first grand ball, but worries that no-one will invite her to dance. Still unable to find happiness, Pierre tries to build bridges with Helene.
