Chris Durlacher: George Orwell – A Life in Pictures

Only a few seconds of video footage of George Orwell is known to exist – walking across a field while at Eton – so writer and director Chris Durlacher had to start from scratch with this dramatised biography. Starring Chris Langham as George Orwell, this critically acclaimed and Emmy-winning film was shown on the BBC in 2003, the centenary of Orwell’s birth. Video from Ge0rge0rwell on YouTube.
