PostSubject: DVDs available about the Anglo Zulu War   Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:09 pm

Does anyone know of any DVDs available on the subject, other than the list below? I suppose we should include VCRs if it hasn't been coverted yet. Isn't there something available on the film that was made in the early 1900's? I ddon't remember the name.

• Zulu
• Zulu Dawn
• The Zulu Wars 1879
• Campaigns in History – Rorke’s Drift
• Zulu Wars (Trilogy)
• Zulu Wars – The Washing of the Spears
• Zulu Wars – The Road to Isandlwana
• Zulu Wars – Twilight of the Zulus
• Shaka Zulu (4 DVDs, 10 part series)

Colonel Johannes Wilhelm Colenbrander, an esteemed veteran of the Zulu, Matabele and Anglo-Boer Wars, drowned on the set of African Film Productions’ epic film, ‘The Symbol of Sacrifice’. The incident also claimed the lives of Joseph Ralph Levy and William Brown, who had just returned from fighting in the World War.

Elizabeth HOGAN,

But is it available on dvd, apart from the excerpts that appear in Ron Lock & Peter Quantrill's 'Isandlwana: Zulu Battlefield'?

Diancast,

There's another one for the list.

The BBC did a episode in their 'Timewatch' series entitled 'Zulu - the true story'. The same company were also responsible for Kenneth Griffith's 'Black as hell, thick as grass!' and John Julius Norwich's 'Death of the Prince Imperial both aired in 1979. It might be worth you while contacting them.

Thanks very much - I will do more digging. Apparantly the 1918 film "Symbol of Sacrifice" is no longer available on the Royal Regt of Wales website.

Interesting mention of a Zulu plot to ambush the Prince Imperial. Never had heard that story before.

Petty Officer Tom,

Actually it is a fiendish German plot to do away with the Prince, bear in mind the year of the film's production.

kwajimu1879,

Good point! Idea

Just like the good folks at Hollywood, USA. Never let historical truth get in the way of one's political agenda.

Hi Diancast.
As far as I'm aware the Symbol of Sacrifice has never been available at the Royal Regt Of Wales shop , or anywhere for that matter .But the Lock & Quantrill dvd which is titled ' Isandlwana Zulu Battlefield ' has footage from the movie .
cheers 90th.

There's also a black and white film of Blood River - I think it's German or Dutch, it's on youtube.
