The classic BBC dramatisation of Tolstoy's epic story of love and loss set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars. Anthony Hopkins heads the cast as Pierre Bezuhov (a role for which he won the 1972 Best Actor BAFTA); Morag Hood is the impulsive and beautiful Natasha Rostova; Alan Dobie is the dour but heroic Andrei Bolkonsky; and David Swift is Napoleon, whose decision to invade Russia in 1812 has far-reaching consequences for Pierre and the Rostov and Bolkonsky families. The twenty-part serial was the vision of producer David Conroy whose principle aim was to transfer the rich characterisation and incident from Tolstoy's greatest novel to a television drama. Scripted by Jack Pulman and directed by John Davies, Conroy's War And Peace boasts superb acting, award-winning design (1972 Best Design BAFTA) and breathtaking battle sequences which were filmed in former Yugoslavia.

War & Peace - War & Peace Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc) - Netflix
War & Peace Volume 2 (The Peace Disc) is the sixth studio album by American rapper Ice Cube, released March 21, 2000 on his own label Lench Mob Records with distribution by Priority Records. It is the second part from the two-album project War & Peace; the previous volume, War & Peace Vol. 1 (The War Disc) was released in 1998. War & Peace Vol. 2 (The Peace Disc) peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200 and at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, selling 190,000 copies in its first week of release. The album starts off with “Hello”, which features former N.W.A bandmates Dr. Dre and MC Ren. The club song “You Can Do It”, which then later re-released in 2004, was a UK #2 for Cube. Even with the success of Ice Cube's film Next Friday, the album's promotion was unsuccessful, and other new artists such as Eminem, Xzibit and Dr. Dre's 2001 were on top of the charts. This was Ice Cube's final album under Priority Records and his last until the release of Laugh Now, Cry Later in 2006. The album has been certified platinum.
