John Madden's sweeping drama After the War tells the tale of a quarter-century relationship between two men who share a similar wartime experience and a similar religious background. Michael Jordan grew up in a well-heeled British family, while Joe Hirsch spent much of his childhood on the run from the Nazis. The two become friends when they are both enrolled at the same school in 1942. They survive anti-Semitic taunts together. Joe grows into a powerful media figure, while Michael becomes a respected man of the arts. The film charts a quarter-century of their history together, detailing a relationship that is equally affectionate and hostile. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

So far I have watched the first disc. I am sufficiently curious about the story to attempt the second disc. If it does not pick up in epi 4 I will give up. Starts off interestingly enough - epi 1 and 2 are good - in particular Geoffrey Palmer ( of As Time Goes By fame ). Perhaps the second disc will clue me in as to what the purpose of the third episode is !
