The forthcoming major film The Iron Lady features a critically acclaimed performance by Meryl Streep as British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher – The Iron Lady of the Western World. From her humble beginnings as a Grocer’s daughter from Grantham, Margaret Thatcher fought her way through the murky world of politics, the sexist prejudices of the Conservative Party elite and the scepticism of the British electorate to become the greatest British Prime Minister since Winston Churchill.
Margaret Thatcher - The Iron Lady is the first major documentary to look back on the development and impact of this remarkable woman, whom commentators of both the political left and right agree changed the face of 20th Century politics forever. Featuring many excerpts from her powerful speeches and insightful contributions from her political supporters and detractors, a portrait emerges of a woman whose strength of conviction eventually became her weakness.
This programme includes intimate footage of the Thatchers at home in Number 10, and unseen footage from her emotional and first major interview after her resignation as Prime Minister with Michael Brunson in 1992.

Very good, documentary-style account of her life. Unlike biopics- where there can be a tendency towards bias, embellishment, & sensationalism--- this DVD portrays Margaret Thatcher for the person she really was. This results in a product that is far from boring! Being a principled politician (an endangered species) she had her fair share of friends & enemies: both are represented here in an even-handed & informative way. This credits the viewer with the intelligence to make up their own mind about her, on the basis of the evidence supplied. Thus, the DVD avoids the danger of being insipidly neutral: her's was a somewhat eventful life! I have no hesitation in recommending this DVD to potential purchasers.
