A look into the life of the author of such novels as "Sons and Lovers" and "Lady Chatterley's Lover" through the use of archives and rare photographs.
"Famous Authors" examines the men and women behind the words that brought them literary kudos.
In "D. H. Lawrence," viewers learn how the British novelist, poet and short story writer melded tales about human relationships with pagan and naturalistic elements.
Lawrence attracted criticism from many quarters because he often ridiculed accepted social conventions -- most noticeably marriage -- and included sexually graphic passages in his work.
