London: A long-lost BBC period drama, starring young Sean Connery, has been rediscovered 49 years after it was first shown.
The drama, which aired on 3 November 1961, is to be released on DVD.
It was an adaptation of Tolstoy`s Anna Karenina.
Claire Bloom played the title role opposite Connery, who starred in the first 007 film, Dr No, a year later, reports the BBC.
The drama tells the story of a Russian society woman who puts her marriage in jeopardy by embarking on a passionate affair.
