This one gets my vote. I watched it on its original (only?) U.S. TV airing on consecutive nights, but it seems, unfortunately, that the 2x90-minute production was later edited together into a single piece with several sections removed and the complete version is no longer available. This I think unfortunate. It was beautifully done, with an excellent cast.
Did you click on that link? I did, then clicked on the imdb.com link at the bottom, from there the merchandising link to amazon.com, and it shows the original version available on dvd, complete and unedited.
