      British Comedies of the 1930s - Vol. 4

      Zavvi

      <p>The ebullient comedy films of the 1930s brought escape and laughter to millions of British cinemagoers, enabling veteran stars of the music-hall and theatre to reach out to a wider audience - making household names of performers like Leslie Fuller, Hal Gordon, Bobby Howes, Ernest Lotinga and Gene Gerrard. Although comedy would prove to be the decade's most successful film genre, many of these classic early talkies have remained unseen since their original release. From boisterous knockabout humour to polished adaptations of popular stage farces, this ongoing collection showcases a wealth of rare features, each presented uncut, in a brand-new transfer from the best available elements in their as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. THEIR NIGHT OUT (1933) An evening of cocktails and frolicking lands a chap in hot water when he's suspected of masterminding a criminal gang! DOCTOR'S ORDERS (1934) Leslie Fuller stars as a quack whose son qualifies as a doctor in total ignorance of his father's occupation!</p>

      The Upchat Collection

      Zavvi

      <p>Sit-com favourites John Alderton and Robin Nedwell share the role of a homeless writer with a highly appropriate pen-name. Along with his many pseudonyms, the roguishly charming Mike Upchat has a rare ability to pass himself off as the character which best fits any given situation. And since Mike lives out of a left-luggage locker in Marylebone Station, that situation will often require his equally amazing ability to chat his way in and out of any beautiful girl’s life, usually via the bedroom. But if Mike Upchat isn’t the first Mike Upchat, then he probably isn’t the only Mike Upchat... A playful, inventive sitcom penned by Billy Liar creator Keith Waterhouse, The Upchat Line appeared in 1977, with its equally successful sequel airing the following year. In a twist ingeniously encompassing Alderton s departure, Robin Nedwell plays the man who inherits the Upchat persona when Mike raffles the key to his left-luggage locker. Both series are included on this set.</p>

Wells, Things to Come set a high benchmark for science fiction with its fantastic design, gigantic sets and spectacular special effects.

      Tales Out of School: Four Plays by David Leland

      Zavvi

      <p>These four television films, originally screened by Channel 4 in 1983, brought the emerging writing talent of former actor David Leland to national attention. He would subsequently win a BAFTA Award for his directorial debut Wish You Were Here and an Emmy Award for his contribution to Band of Brothers, and work on screenplays for Mona Lisa and Personal Services. Featuring early roles for Tim Roth and Jim Broadbent, the plays form a scathing portrait of British society in the early 1980s, focusing in particular on the polarisation of attitudes towards the role and methods of education in an increasingly fragmented society. Without overtly offering solutions, Leland s plays depict - often with unnerving acuity and foresight - the experience of individuals within systems that have become inadequate in dealing with the fallout of social breakdown. Of the four plays presented here, Made in Britain, directed by Alan Clarke (Scum), inevitably aroused the strongest controversy, with Tim Roth s astonishing portrayal of a nihilistic, racist teenage skinhead captured by Chris Menges innovative cinematography; the screenplay won Leland the Prix Italia in 1983. / Birth of a Nation - Featuring Jim Broadbent, the play dramatises the conflict between old, authoritarian teaching methods and the more relaxed approach of progressive educationalists. / Flying into the Wind - Graham Crowden stars in a play depicting the battle between parents who want to home-educate their children and the local education authority. / R.H.I.N.O. - The harrowing story of Angela, a disenfranchised young black girl living in 1980s London, and her encounters with a well-meaning but often ineffectual social system. / Made in Britain - Directed by Alan Clarke, Tim Roth makes his TV debut as a hate-filled teenage skinhead on a self-destructive campaign destined to lead to permanent incarceration.</p>

With new HD transfers taken from the original film elements, the first two series are presented here at a quality level never previously seen.Special Features The Making of Robin of Sherwood - exclusive documentary Enhanced Dolby Surround track Original mono track Music only tracks for selected episodes Commentary with Richard Carpenter and Ian Sharp on Robin Hood and the Sorcerer and The King's Fool Commentary with Robert Young and Paul Knight on The Swords of Wayland expanded version of The Electric Theatre Show documentary from 1983 (HD) Series out-takes PDF material including Richard Carpenter's original treatment Extensive stills gallery (HD) Textless anf foreign titles</p>

      Guardians - The Complete Series

      Zavvi

      <p>Following a period of mass unemployment, hyperinflation, social disorder and industrial unrest, democracy has been swept away amid a raft of security measures; law and order have been restored under a new regime, whose totalitarian rule is enforced by uniformed paramilitaries known as the Guardians. Behind the slogan ‘Make Britain Great’, the outwardly benign regime suppresses all opposition, while the Guardians, taking orders from their shadowy leader, the General, have become the true holders of power. There are voices of dissent, however; a loose affiliation of resistance groups, collectively known as Quarmby, has begun a clandestine struggle against the regime. But opposing factions quickly emerge within the movement – and with them, the inescapable moral dilemmas faced by all those who must use force to achieve their ends.The Guardians’ chilling vision of an Orwellian near-future has remained unseen since its original airing in 1971. Created by Rex Firkin and Vincent Tilsley, whose combined credits include The Prisoner, Manhunt, The Death of Adolf Hitler and The Forsyte Saga, the series anticipated many more recent dramatisations featuring similarly dystopian landscapes, and has been praised for its insightful, intelligent handling of its subject; the grey area in which resistance tactics may disturbingly mirror those of the oppressor is acknowledged, and ambivalent, doubt-ridden characters exist on both sides. Available here for the very first time in any format, this release contains all 13 hour-long episodes.</p>

      <p>After four highly successful series, in 1989 the international Emmy Award-winning Fresh Fields became French Fields, as William and Hester Fields (Julia McKenzie and Anton Rodgers) followed their children's example and set up home across the Channel. They soon discover there is more than 22 miles of water dividing the English from the French. Hester's brave attempt to cross the language barrier, using Franglais and mime to rival Marcel Marceau, merely causes bewilderment. And French customs and culture are no less tricky; even the car steering wheel is in the wrong place, while asking a surly housekeeper to leave could be seen as despotic and spark a minor revolution. However, despite such difficulties, the Fields persevere in their inimitable style providing comic entertainment for their French friends and viewers alike.
