Has anyone seen these documentries?

I saw two documentries about Keats on Amazon.com and despite the fact that one of them has the wrong picture on the cover,(It's John Hamilton Reynolds not Keats) has anyone seen these documentries? Are they any good? I trust the recommendations on this forum so your feed back is appreciated.

Neither looks familiar, catlover. And I have to agree with whoever wrote the review of the second one; any biography that claims to know something about Keats must be a bit suspect if it uses a picture of Reynolds as cover art. :roll:

Maybe I will just buy one of them and I will review it.As you said I would rather buy the one with the accurate picture of course.

I think Keats and Reynolds would have had a good laugh over that one! :)

Personally, I quite like this one. (portrait, I mean, haven't seen the doc). Makes him look like a real person. Severn/Reynolds were still in training as artists/ v young and inexperienced, and they traditional 'orig' portraits have always struck me as a bid weird looking. Like the only portrait of Jane Austen, you know very well no-one ever born quite looked like them. At least in this one he's human (though suspiciously handsome)

I agree this is a good portrait.I bet he was handsome.Interesting to see what look alike actor they will choose for Reynolds in the new up coming movie about Keats.
