This BBC production is a survey of Sheerlock Holmes films from the earliest to the most recent, and the evolution of his character.
The survey is limited to British and American films; sadly the wonderful Livanov's characterization (Russian television series, 1979--1986) is not mentioned at all. As a complement to BBC's survey, also see Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson: The Acquaintance, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079902/ for the first episode of the series. English subtitles are easily found on the Web.
The Hound of Baskervilles (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083100/) done as two episodes in the series, comes closest to Conan Doyle's original story among a dozen or so versions that I have seen.
