    I have the whole series of The British Greats: Peter Finch, Jack Hawkins, Robert Donat, Leslie Howard and Gracie Fields. They are on DVD taken from off-air broadcasts in the early 80s. They are really excellent portraits. There were only five in the series, Barry Norman may have included Ronald Colman in another series, possibly, The Hollywood Greats. Send me a PM if you are interested.

    So sorry about my earlier response. Because Ronald Colman was English I jumped to the wrong conclusion. THE HOLLYWOOD GREATS preceded the British run,and went out before the days of taping. They comprised according to the BBC Programme Catalogue:



    # 5 programmes in 1977



    * CLARK GABLE

    * ERROL FLYNN

    * SPENCER TRACY

    * GARY COOPER

    * HUMPHREY BOGART



    # 5 programmes in 1978



    * JOAN CRAWFORD

    * RONALD COLMAN

    * JEAN HARLOW

    * JUDY GARLAND

    CHARLES LAUGHTON



    # 5 programmes in 1979



    * EDWARD G.ROBINSON

    * GROUCHO MARX

    * CHARLIE CHAPLIN

    * MARILYN MONROE

    HOLLYWOOD, THE GOLDEN YEARS



    # 1984



    * JOHN WAYNE

    * HENRY FONDA

    STEVE MCQUEEN



    2 programmes in 1985
