The life and times of Vlad "Dracula" Tepes, the Impaler, Turk-destroyer extraordinaire.
Part 2 of "Nightfall’s" dramatization of the legend of Elizabeth Bathory, the Blood Countess.
Elizabeth (Erzsébet) Báthory was known as The Blood Countess because of her sadistic abuse of servants and probably others in her quest for youth and beauty, and probably sexual thrill. She was a countess in Transylvania in the late 16th/early 17th century during the time when nobility was considered to be a species apart from mere humans.
The Blood Countess radioplay on Nightfall, a CBC Toronto production, was produced in 1980.
