  • Much Ado About Nothing [1993] Much Ado About Nothing | DVD | (01/10/1999) from £4.09  |  Saving you £11.90 (74.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Kenneth Branagh's 1993 production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is a vigorous and imaginative work, cheerful and accessible for everyone. Largely the story of Benedick (Branagh) and Beatrice (Emma Thompson)--adversaries who come to believe each is trying to woo the other--the film veers from arched wit to ironic romps, and the two leads don't mind looking a little silly at times. But the plot is also layered with darker matters that concern the ease with which men and women fall into mutual distrust. Branagh has rounded up a mixed cast of stage vets and Hollywood stars, among the latter Denzel Washington and Michael Keaton, the latter playing a rather seedy, Beetlejuice-like version of Dogberry, king of malapropisms.--Tom Keogh

    This masterly adaptation of Alan Ayckbourn's celebrated trio of plays encompasses a remarkable range of talent - from multi-award-winning producers Verity Lambert and David Susskind to a cast that includes Tom Conti Penelope Keith Richard Briers and Penelope Wilton. Employing a typically inventive device (which Ayckbourn would further explore in 1999 with the simultaneous staging of the two-act House and Garden) the trilogy presents a comically fraught weekend from three different perspectives as family and in-laws gather at the decaying country home of their bedridden mother the drink flows and hidden enmities intimate secrets and uncomfortable truths emerge through the veneer of jollity and civility. The Norman Conquests was phenomenally successful both in London's West End in 1974 and on Broadway the following year and this Thames production similarly triumphed at the BAFTA Awards in 1977 earning Keith an award for Best Actress and a joint nomination for Best Drama Series for Lambert and director Herbert Wise.

  • Roobarb And Custard - The Complete Roobarb And Custard [1974] Roobarb And Custard - The Complete Roobarb And Custard | DVD | (16/06/2003) from £18.99  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £5.99

    Directed by Bob Godfrey, who was also jointly responsible for its jelly-wobbly animation, written by Grange Calveley and narrated by the tirelessly chipper Richard Briers, Roobarb and Custard was one of the very great five-minute animated cartoon series of the 1970s. This complete edition contains all its 30 episodes. First broadcast in 1974, squeezed in just before the early evening news on the BBC, it was ostensibly aimed at schoolchildren. However, there's much for adults to enjoy in these episodes beyond the obvious nostalgia value. Roobarb is the breathlessly optimistic hound determined to reshape the universe according to his existential whims but who, like many dogs, is perpetually apt to bark up the wrong tree. Daily he tries to liven up the garden he inhabits, be it putting on a clown show on a rainy day or reinventing the day Thursday as Thorsday, thereby invoking the anger of the Norse Gods. All his efforts end in catastrophe, provoking the guffaws of the smug and cynical cat Custard and twittery snickers of the Greek chorus of birds in the trees. Deep truths about hubris and folly are revealed in these episodes. The makers of these cartoons, who clearly had a very good time working on them, see no reason not to avail themselves of all the surreal possibilities of animation, or to indulge in groan-inducing puns for that matter. From the cheesy soundtrack to the lateral flights of associative fancy, this is wonderful, timeless stuff that should give paws for thought for those who pooh-pooh 1970s cartoon canine capers. On the DVD: The Complete Roobarb and Custard has one extra feature--an interactive game in which you are invited to foil Custard by clicking a button to effect a Roobarb disguise. Adults may struggle to comprehend the rules, but they should present no problem to the more computer-adept under-10s. --David Stubbs
