The sordid case of John Bingham, the gambling-addicted peer of the realm who in 1974 fled from the fatal bludgeoning of his children's nanny and was never seen again, serves as the basis for these British TV dramas. Rory Kinnear takes the title role in "Lucan" (2013), which looks at the lord's crumbling marriage to Lady Veronica Lucan (Catherine McCormack) and how his inner circle closed ranks after his flight. Christopher Eccleston, Michael Gambon, Paul Freeman co-star. "The Trial of Lord Lucan" (1994) offers a speculative construction of the criminal proceedings of a captured Bingham (Julian Wadham). Lynsey Baxter, Anthony Head, Jesse Birdsall also star. 3 1/2 hrs. total on two discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1.
