This is a 2003 docudrama written, produced and directed by James Hawes in asssociation with PBS and Devillier Donegan Enterprises.
It is an intensely personal drama of T.E. Lawrence---a story of courage, guilt, betrayal and triumph as well as tragedy.
Filmed in England and throughout the Middle East, the film includes rare archival footage and eyewitness accounts of Arabs, Westerners and Lawrence's diaries.
It is a poignant and dramatic tale of one of the 20th century's most romantic yet enigmatic figures.

Fairly accurate, very entertaining docudrama of y conquering and dividing the Ottoman Empire using WWI as an excuse by mainly England and France. Masterful performance by Peter O'Toole as T.E. Lawrence launched his movie career. Should be seen by anyone who wants to get a glimpse of understanding regarding the political schizophrenia witnessed in the Middle East today.
