The Tyrant King - The Complete Series | DVD | (01/07/2013)
from £7.85 | Saving you £7.14 (47.60%) | RRP
Directed by Mike Hodges (Get Carter, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead), written by Ace Of Wands creator Trevor Preston, and starring Philip Madoc, Murray Melvin and juvenile leads from the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, The Tyrant King follows three teenagers as they traverse London searching for an answer to a hidden secret. A quest fraught with drama and danger takes them to some of the capital's most iconic landmarks and beyond (a reflection of the drama's origin as an adventure story published by London Transport), while the action is complemented by an atmospheric contemporary soundtrack featuring, among others, Pink Floyd, The Nice, Cream and The Moody Blues. Shown once in black and white in 1968, this is the first time it will be seen in colour, transferred from original film materials specifically for this release. This six-part mystery thriller was Thames Television's very first production. Shot on location on 16mm film, it was effectively an experiment to assess the feasibility of a small-scale production unit within the company - a subsidiary that would eventually become the legendary Euston Films, responsible for a string of phenomenally successful dramas including The Sweeney and Minder. Music from The Rolling Stones, The Nice, The Moody Blues, Cream and Pink Floyd.
