Around 1983 or 1984, I saw an interesting 2-part British TV film on the Lake Poets by Ken Russell called Clouds of Glory. I don't remember if it was on the early format of the Bravo channel (which is now a mere ghost of its once great self) or the short-lived CBS Cable (an arts channel that didn't last long), but it aired at a time when my VCR was on the fritz, and I was unable to tape it.
The film was in two parts: William and Dorothy concerned the close (perhaps too close) relationship of William Wordsworth (David Warner) and his sister Dorothy (Felicity Kendall), and how his Lucy poems may have been inspired by her. What most impressed me about it was Warner's readings, in his beautiful voice of some of Wordsworth's greatest passages, and it was beautifully filmed on location.
The second half was called The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and dealt with the poet Coleridge's addiction to laudnum, which inspired/hampered his work. David Hemmings played Coleridge, and William and dorothy appeared briefly in it as well.
I have never seen Clouds of Glory released on video in any form whatsoever, but would be interested in trading for it if any one happened to tape it when it aired in the early eighties.
