    In the third century of the second calendar after the chaos of the intergalactic wars a powerful dictatorship has risen to dynamic proportions and engulfed most of the populated worlds. Liberty has become a crime punishable by death and the majority of the population lives in a drug-induced state of docility. This tyrannical authority fulfils George Orwell's prophecy of 1984 to its most terrifying extremes. This government is known as the Federation. Each world has its share of rebe

    Sixteen-year-old Terry Connor is sent, along with a few of his friends, to an Outward Bound centre. On his first day at the centre Terry is taken pot-holing by the senior instructor, Alex. All goes well until, at 100 feet underground, Alex goes to search for the torch that Terry has dropped.Hours pass, and, to Terry's astonishment, when Alex finally returns he has no recollection whatever of having been absent. Terry suspects something sinister is taking place - it is surely no coincidence that there is a secret Ministry of Defence establishment nearby. But just how deeply his curiosity will involve him in dangerous matters becomes clear when he learns the truth about the 'Jensen Code'...The Jensen Code was a highly unusual children's thriller series, written by Carey Harrison (author son of actor Rex Harrison), and starring David (Dai) Bradley, the BAFTA-winning young star of Kes, as the teenager who unwittingly uncovers a terrifying space-age espionage project. This complete 13-part series, rarely seen since its original transmission in 1973, is released here for the first time in any format. Originally made in colour, The Jensen Code now exists only as black and white telerecordings made for overseas sales, the full colour episodes having been junked many years ago.

    Hayley Mills and Oliver Reed star in Kinglsy Amis' sophisticated sex comedy, directed by Jonathan Miller. Pretty young teacher Jenny Bunn (Hayley Mills) moves down south in the swinging sixties. Jenny's hardly had time to settle into her digs before local lothario Patrick (Oliver Reed) spots her, wines and dines her and sweeps her back to his place for a night of (in his mind) meaningless sex. It's then that Patrick makes a truly shocking discovery: Jenny is a virgin - and intends to stay that way. Patrick hasn't met a virgin before, so he's totally confused - and a bit scared. Can he persuade the virtuous Jenny to join the permissive society or should he just give up and settle for the easy charms of randy TV show girl Wendy (Aimi McDonald)? Whatever he's going to do, he'd better do it fast - because Jenny's grubby old landlord Dick (John Bird) and super-rich socialist Julian (Noel Harrison) are also sniffing around her... With a great supporting cast that includes Sheila Hancock, Ronald Lacey John Fortune and Penelope Keith, and a witty script from George Melly, Take A Girl Like You is a saucy British classic available on DVD for the very first time.

Though there is hope for a brighter future, six years of conflict has changed life considerably for both the Warringtons, owners of the ironworks in the town of Whitstanton, and for the working-class Haywards. As both families come to terms with the uncertain, fragmented world that emerges during peacetime, they share joys and disappointments as the future unfolds both in Britain, and in Germany...

  • Alice In Wonderland [DVD] Alice In Wonderland | DVD | (24/11/2014) from £8.99  |  Saving you £16.00 (64.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Alice in Wonderland the haunting nightmarish 1966 BBC Television version writ-ten and directed by Jonathan Miller and starring Peter Sellers Sir John Gielgud Sir Michael Redgrave Wilfrid Brambell Peter Cook Alan Bennett John Bird Leo McKern and Anne-Marie Mallik as Alice. Shot in pinpoint ghostly black and white with a dream-like editing schematic actors dressed not in costumes but in period clothes and a jarring seductive beautiful score by Ravi Shankar this Alice in Wonderland is like no other version you'll see of the Lewis Carroll classic. Alice in Wonderland is a dark nightmarish excursion into pointless almost listlessmadness...which makes it even more off-putting and uncomfortable in its rigid diffidence. Alice in Wonderland doesn't look like anything I've ever associated with the literary source. Instead Miller gives us an Alice who sleepwalks through increasingly madden-ing scenes that although she says she's a bit confused by them on the soundtrack she doesn't appear fazed by them at all.
