Sir John Gielgud's working script for scenes from episodes six and eight of War and Remembrance, a twelve-part television blockbuster made in 1985 as a sequel to The Winds of War. The show starred Robert Mitchum and Jane Seymour, and also featured Robert Hardy as Winston Churchill and Steven Berkoff as Adolf Hitler. Gielgud played Aaron Jastrow, and this portion of his script is extensively annotated by him, his lines often written out beside the typescript with words and phrases underlined as a guide for emphasis.
