I have DVDs of both The Moonstone and Sense and Sensibility with Robin Ellis.  I got them from Amazon some years ago.  I'm sure that they still have copies - they are both rather old TV adaptations and cost very little.

Yes, Ross, I have actually seen it - a friend of mine has it. It is quite faithful to the book, although it does look, unsurprisingly, rather dated. 

She also has Sense and Sensibility with Robin as Edward Ferrars. I think it is a Dutch DVD, as my friend is from the Netherlands.  Her Dutch version of Poldark, a small amount of which I have seen, is about 3 hours longer than the UK version (according to her).  It is only the subtitles which are Dutch!

For anyone who is not familiar with it, The Moonstone is a really good read. Wilkie Collins captures perfectly the different styles of each narrator.

I am only familiar with the recent version starring Greg Wise. I didn't know he starred in this older version. I wonder how it was?

 

I'm still waiting for the powers that be to issue a dvd copy of his Sense & Sensibility. I would love to see that one!
