Lashing rain had turned the shell-cratered Flanders fields into a treacherous sucking quagmire of liquid mud. Bogged down and with 225,000 casualties, the Allies desperately needed to take Passchendaele Ridge, a seemingly impregnable network of German pill-boxes packed with machine guns. The attack was considered suicidal, but it went ahead anyway...THE WESTERN FRONT: THE LAST GREAT OFFENSIVES looks at the final great offensives fought on the Western Front, combining extraordinary archive film and hundreds of rare photographs with the letters and journals of the commanders, officers and men on both sides.It tells the story of the great German offensive of March 1918 and its subsequent stalling amid crumbling supply lines and stiffening opposition; and of the last, victorious Allied offensive, concentrating on the central part played by the Canadian divisions.Through detailed accounts of actions such as the battle of Amiens, the extraordinary assault on the Drocourt-Queant Line, the crossing of the Canal Du Nord and the recapturing of Mons on 11th November 1918, it reveals the sheer savagery of the fighting and celebrates the achievements of Allied troops up until the fatal firing of the very last bullet...Special Features:Sam's ArmyWhen Britain went to war in 1914, she drew her empire into the conflict with her</p>

    • <p>Too late, perhaps, for a cure. Too late for an early diagnosis to save the life of the poor wretch on the cold steel slab. But not too late to solve the puzzle, to right a wrong... To make a bit of difference in this bad, hard world. McCallum is a series unlike any other. This isn’t a glossy cop show where the smiles dazzle more than the badges. This isn’t a tale of heroes and villains, of extraordinary people. Just the entirely believable tales of a man in crisis, the dedicated team around him struggling to work with slashed budgets, and the mysteries of forensic pathology, where a spot of lateral thinking can mean the difference between a right and a wrong conclusion, and an over-looked point can result in the conviction of an innocent man. Set in the East End of London – hunting ground of the notorious Jack the Ripper – the series stars John Hannah (The Mummy / Four Weddings and a Funeral) in the title role of Dr. Iain McCallum, a motorcycling forensic pathologist with a passion for truth and more women problems than he can handle. Surrounding him are the dedicated St. Patrick’s team of Angela Moloney, Sir Paddy Penfold, Fuzzy and Bobby... close friends at the sharp end, making up a formidable body of opposition to those determined to flaunt the law. Nominated for a BAFTA in 1996 and the 1997 BAFTA Award Scotland for Best Single Drama Starring BAFTA Film Award nominee John Hannah (The Mummy / Four Weddings and a Funeral) Also features Suzanna Hamilton (1984), Hugo Speer (The Full Monty), Eva Pope (Waterloo Road) and Nathaniel Parker (Stardust)</p>

She’s drifted apart from her down-to-earth husband (David Lansbury), and her head’s in the…stars? After encountering cosmic forces in her own home, Joanne develops some kooky habits (think ‘fascination with dead fish’), and joins a UFO support group to help solve the mystery. There, she meets Abraham (Isaach De Bankolé), an émigré from the Ivory Coast who shares the same fan-shaped branding mark on his skin. The two quickly learn an undeniable truth: aliens are among us, and it’s no fluke.

    • <p>Electric trams first appeared in Great Britain at the end of the 19th century. Horse- drawn tramcars had been around since the late 1870s, but it was with the development of electric traction that tramcars really came into their own. Single-deck trams, then double-deck open trams and later open-balcony trams became a familiar sight around the British Isles. Towns and Cities such as Glasgow, Sheffield, Blackpool, Southampton, Leicester, Leeds, Cardiff and London had extensive tramway systems. But many systems were damaged in the Second World War, just as the trolleybus was gaining popularity, and the tram systems were gradually scrapped. Fortunately, many examples of tramcars are persevered today, either in museums or in active service and this programme travels back in time to the height of tramcars popularity. We visit various locations to find some of the best examples of restored trams from Sheffield, to Blackpool and from Glasgow to Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire.</p>

    • <p>Join James Burke on his landmark journey of discovery through the history of science and technology, and learn how everyone and everything in this world is connected. A brilliant and enlightening account of how seemingly disparate scientific innovations mesh together to produce extraordinary and unforeseen technological advances. Simply Media are delighted to announce the release of the long sought after Connections: The Complete Series on DVD for the first time 6th February 2017. Originally shown by the BBC in 1978, this fascinating and highly regarded ten-part documentary series is presented by the brilliant science historian, author and television producer / broadcaster James Burke, who rose to fame on the BBC science series Tomorrow's World. Burke's visible knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject matter, intensity and sharp wit helped keep viewers enthralled and coming back for more with every fact-filled episode. The series was acclaimed for its fantastic direction by the multi-award winning Mick Jackson (The Bodyguard), who created a visual spectacle boasting cinematography only seen in films at the time. It was unlike anything ever seen before in TV science programming – or since. Known for his groundbreaking productions, Jackson would go on to direct the critically acclaimed, and visually stunning, triple BAFTA-winning Threads in 1984. Connections also proved to be hugely popular when it aired on PBS in USA in 1979, becoming one of the most watched shows aired at the time. Connections captivated audiences by tracing the historical relationships between invention and discovery, showing how seemingly completely unrelated scientific achievements, discoveries and world events were in fact interconnected and built from one another successively in a way which led to the development of the modern technologies that surround us today. Each episode is brimming with information chronicling individual stories of technological development, opening with a particular innovation or event of the past. It traces its timeline through a series of seemingly unrelated connections that led to it being responsible for becoming one of the fundamental parts of the modern world, and shaped the way people think and behave. This format proved popular with viewers, making a programme on science feel more like a detective story. The series was also famed for its unconventional use of historical re-enactments and intricate working models to bring the stories to life. The production was truly ambitious in its scale, covering 19 countries and 150 locations, taking over 14 months to film, and covering over 12,000 years of history – rarely seen in documentaries made at that time. From how nautical instruments of Elizabethan times give rise to the atom bomb, to what links Britain’s textile mills to the Information Age and the creation of the computer, Burke dissects the inception of things we often take for granted in very surprising ways</p>

    • <p>With a huge role call displaying the cream of British comedy talent appearing as crazy characters in outlandish situations,welcome to Jinsy, the island of misadventure! Essential viewing for fans of alternative British comedy. Simply Media are delighted to announce the release of the wonderfully absurd cult sitcom/sketch show This is Jinsy: Series 2 on DVD 15th May 2017. Created by the largely unknown Chris Bran and Justin Chubb from Guernsey, to add to its allure, this eight-part series (with the first series nominated for a British Comedy Award) will appeal to fans of surreal alternative comedies such as Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Mighty Boosh or the works of Spike Milligan. Originally shown on Sky Atlantic in 2014, This is Jinsy transports audiences to the fictional island of Jinsy. Land of fabulous knitwear, folksong and hi-tech surveillance, or a Channel Island that has slipped its moorings as explained by Chubb. The island’s 791 eccentric inhabitants are watched over by 1067 tessellators – Jinsy's surveillance system. From the vantage point in their Great Tower, Arbiter Maven (Chubb) and his long-suffering assistant, Sporall (Bran), attempt to run the island in strict adherence to Jinsy law and its unseen overlord, The Great He! Jinsy's strange and colourful inhabitants are played by some of Britain's finest actors and comedians, as you have never seen them before. Each episode stars a notable guest star throwing themselves fully at their role. Amongst the starry cast you’ll find Stephen Fry as a reanimated ancient wig; Derek Jacobi as the island's oldest man, who is a baby; Olivia Colman as Maven's buck-toothed wife; Katy Brand as the local psychic that specialises in rat-bum reading; Greg Davies as the sinister lady who dispels punishment on the residents of Jinsy from the safety of her television studio; and Jennifer Saunders as the voice of reason itself. Hilarious and catchy musical interludes from the cast are supported by the Jinsy choir. Classics include Female Badger performed by Rob Brydon; Onion Song featuring KT Tunstall; and an unmistakable tribute to David Bowie and Mick Jagger in Fruit Suit .</p>

    • <p>Series 6 continues the dramatic story of the Hammond family and their lucrative family business 'Hammond Transport Services', following the death of patriarch Robert Hammond, who died while doing the nasty with his secretary. Tensions run high when shares in the family business are shockingly split not just between the three brothers, but also with Robert's secretary Jennifer (Jennifer Wilson – Z Cars). Each shareholder has different ideas on how to run the business. Edward (Patrick O'Connell – Fraud Squad) is a no nonsense, well-paid accountant who feels he was most qualified to run the whole business by himself; David (Robin Chadwick – Pride and Prejudice (1967)) is a disinterested second class honours, first class layabout arts graduate and playboy with a glamorous girlfriend (Gabrielle Drake); while Brian (Richard Easton – Finding Forrester) is a dull accountancy wizard with a controlling wife. Throw domineering mother Mary (Jean Anderson – The Railway Children) in to the mix and The Brothers delivers a winning formula of power struggles and family feuding that kept fans devoted. Doctor Who fans can also rejoice at the return of Colin Baker as ruthless city banker Paul most hated man in Britain Merroney, and the equally ambitious Jane Maxwell (Kate O'Mara) to continue their on-screen business rivalry. Fascinating fact for you: O'Mara and Baker's on-screen rivalry sparked off in The Brothers would continue in another face off, this time on the set of Doctor Who where Baker played the sixth incarnation of The Doctor and O'Mara was cast as evil Time Lady 'The Rani'. In this penultimate series, Edward and Jennifer experience family trauma as they battle to keep their adopted baby, after its natural mother begins to have a change of heart. Hammond Transport Services seeks to expand into France, where David is dazzled by man-eater Thérèse d’Alambert (Françoise Pascal – Mind Your Language). And Jane Maxwell senses trouble when a private jet brings an overseas speculator onto the scene, who duly makes an unwelcome offer for the company. With gripping boardroom drama, unlike anything you’ll find on television today, family tragedy, financial struggles, secrets and betrayal, this is a series that will be welcomed by all fans of The Brothers. And, it’s a great opportunity for fans of classic BBC drama to get stuck in to the ways and woes of the alluring Hammond family.</p>

Starring John Carson, Kara Wilson, William Moore and Clive Swift. Hugh Leonard s third Dickens adaptation for the BBC, first broadcast in 1969, is an absorbing portrayal of proud logic undone by staunch affection. The timeless story of a father s blinkered pride, public downfall and emotional rescue. Paul Dombey (John Carson) is the wealthy owner of a shipping company whose sole desire is to have a son to inherit the family firm. But when a son arrives, his wife dies soon after, and the sickly boy s own days are numbered. Dombey finds no solace in the affections of his elder child Florence (Kara Wilson). He sees little use in daughters in the business world. Encouraged by the sinister Major Bagstock (Clive Swift), Dombey enters into a second, loveless marriage with Edith Grainger (Sally Home), who eventually flees to France with Dombey s double-dealing business manager James Carker (Gary Raymond). Dombey s livelihood is further undermined by a burgeoning railway network. All seems lost unless his pride will allow him to salvage a relationship with Florence. The colourful characters also include put-upon clerk Walter Gay (Derek Seaton), retired sea-captain Cuttle (William Moore), scatterbrained Mr Toots (Christopher Sandford), Florence s faithful maid Susan Nipper (Helen Fraser), Dombey s fusspot sister Louisa Chick (Hilda Braid) and the spurned but loyal Lucretia Tox (Pat Coombs).</p>

    • <p>The first BBC television adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic, Constance Cox's adaptation of Oliver Twist (1962) is now available for the first time to own on DVD. Starring Bruce Prochnik and BAFTA nominees Max Adrian and Peter Vaughan. Constance Cox s uncompromising 1962 adaptation of Dickens tale of a gang of orphan boys turned to crime changed the face of British Sunday teatime viewing. Her unvarnished depiction of despair and depravity in the back alleys of 19th-century London, and the cruel divide between rich and poor, shattered expectations of cosy family drama. But this is Oliver as Dickens intended, without the enforced jollity of the blockbuster Lionel Bart/Carol Reed musical. Max Adrian stars as villainous Fagin, Peter Vaughan an indelibly brutal Bill Sikes, Bruce Prochnik a gentle Oliver, Melvyn Hayes a spry Artful Dodger, and Carmel McSharry the trapped and powerless Nancy. In support are Willoughby Goddard as bullying beadle Bumble, Gay Cameron as kindly aunt Rose Maylie, John Carson s cowardly Monks and Donald Eccles bitter undertaker Sowerberry. This landmark BBC production, released for the first time on DVD, was a gritty game-changer that raised the bar and stretched the boundaries of TV adaptation and serial drama.</p>

    • <p>Directed by BAFTA-nominee Martyn Friend (New Tricks) and produced by BAFTA-nominee John Harris (The Singing Detective), the series also proved popular in the US, where it was nominated for a CableACE award in 1985 for Best Movie or Mini-series. Shackleton was shot on location in Greenland and features cinematography from BAFTA-winner David Whitson (The Voyage of Charles Darwin), who is no stranger to creating atmospheric journeys of historical figures. The chilling original music score was composed by Francis Shaw. Undeterred by the dangers faced by Roald Amundsen (first to reach the South Pole) and Robert Falcon Scott and his team (who perished on their treacherous journey), Shackleton, in 1914, chooses to lead a team on their famous journey aboard the Endurance. However, when disaster strikes and the ship is trapped and crushed by pack-ice, Shackleton and five of his men must embark on a desperate 800-mile journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia with only the James Caird, a 20-foot lifeboat, to protect them against the furious Southern Ocean. Based on the true stories, recorded in Shackleton's own journals which he kept during his expeditions, this series does not shy away from the harsh realities the men faced in the Antarctic – from dwindling supplies to emergency amputations – and provides a gripping account of the dangers, frustrations and suffering the determined explorers endured. Unlike recent film and TV adaptations of the story, the BBC’s 1983 drama delivers a widely acknowledged true account of the events as they unfolded. It opens with Shackleton planning the expedition and reveals the challenges he faced in finding sponsors. It presents the perilous journey on the James Caird and the South Georgia mountain crossing in keeping with journal records. And, unlike later versions, the BBC’s Shackleton delves into his complex relationships with those around him as they all battle to succeed and survive. David Schofield stars as Ernest Shackleton in a remarkable early performance. He would later go on to star in the epic blockbusters: Gladiator, The Walking Dead and Pirates of the Caribbean. David Rodigan (A Woman called Moses) is outstanding as Shackleton's trusted deputy Frank Wild. This critically acclaimed, fact-based drama will definitely appeal to an audience interested in historical biopics and true-life adventures. Generally, fans of brilliantly cast and well-written drama with high production values will be thrilled to hear of Shackleton’s long-awaited DVD release.</p>

Formed in America in the spring of 1942, these elite regiments were designed to fight behind enemy lines. The men were trained to overcome any obstacle, survive in any situation – and to be utterly ruthless killers with weapons or bare hands. Devils’s Brigade charts the operational history of this battle-hardened special force from 1942 to its disbandment in 1944, from the Aleutians to the Italian Campaign, featuring rare archive film, some of which is in colour. Veterans of the force – many speaking for the very first time - provide vivid, first hand accounts of combat. At the same time, fifteen soldiers of today – many of them veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan – volunteer to undergo the training given to 1st Special Service Force soldiers in 1942. They train to use WWII German weapons, plan ambushes and learn the art of ‘fighting dirty’ and close in knife work under the tutelage of instructor Bill Wolfe. If they prove tough enough, if they can stay the course, they will then have to relive the Devil’s Brigade’s finest moment – a night assault on Mount Difensa in Italy.
