Consumed by anger and hungry for vengeance, Kathleen now finds she must take matters into her own hands… SPECIAL FEATURES: [] Archive interview with Tony Garnett [] Original theatrical trailers [] Image gallery [] Press book PDF

Sez Les - Volume 4

Sez Les was the show that firmly established Les Dawson s reputation, running for over seven years and bringing his dour, miserablist humour to a wider viewing public. Now you can rejoin the gloomy king of comedy and an array of favourite comic characters in this fourth volume, comprising series nine to eleven, along with a best of compilation show first screened in 1974. Featuring a running guest spot for comedy legend John Cleese alongside stalwart sideman Roy Barraclough, these shows offer more world-weary humour and hilarious sketches, with death-defying stunts and sleight of hand by the likes of The Great Roberto, Superflop, The Great Magico and Man of Steel. Cosmo Smallpiece is on typically lecherous form, gossiping Lancashire housewives Cissie and Ada find plenty to natter about, and we meet the dismal Desponts TV’s dullest family. Les s many guests include Dana, Henry Cooper, Clodagh Rogers, Freddie Trueman, Lynsey de Paul and Cyril Smith, MP.

Airline - The Complete Series

1946. The war is over… but not for everyone. Demobbed pilot Jack Ruskin (Roy Marsden The Sandbaggers) has developed a passion for aviation and he’s determined to keep flying. Unable to find work with an established civilian airline, and armed with only his demob suit and a seventy-pound gratuity, he decides to launch his own air freight company with wartime colleague Peter Witney. Boasting just one plane, Ruskin Air Services is born amid the austerity of post-war Britain… and it’s not only the Great Freeze that threatens to keep Jack’s fledgling business on the ground. Airline vividly brings to life the faltering and sometimes perilous progress of the independent airline operators of the Forties, encompassing landmark events such as the Berlin Airlift and capturing the excitement of the earliest passenger services. Richard Heffer (Colditz) and Terence Rigby (Beiderbecke) also star in this highly original series, devised and written by Wilfred Greatorex (The Power Game).
