Dr. Zhivago: The Mini-Series
I imagine most people remember the classic MGM version with Omar Sharif and Julie Christie. However, in what has become an ongoing effort to reclaim its classics, Russian television presented an 11-part series in 2006, with the great Oleg Menshikov in the title role. Really looking forward to seeing it. Here is the trailer and a clip from the series. Whole different feel to the novel.
