| DVD

It's 1968 and the swinging sixties have made their way up North and in to the life of grizzled Inspector George Gently (Martin Shaw). Joined by his sharp tongued partner DS John Bacchus (Lee Ingleby) Gently finds himself on the case of a murdered aristocrat a kidnapped orphan and a murder that may have been a race-hate crime. The late sixties are a turbulent time in Britain and Gently's investigations are complicated by class tensions a dark undercurrent of racism and the outmoded shame of single motherhood not to mention the threat of past grudges rearing their head. There are also signs of change though as Gently witnesses the coming of age of a younger more tolerant generation and their increasing social consciousness. And of course there is Northern Soul. Filled with suspense humour and Soul Series Five of George Gently is more than just a detective procedural. A nostalgic treat for anyone who was there and something unseen for anyone who wasn't it is a time capsule of an imperfect but exciting and hopeful time that resonates right through to the present. This collection contains the entire fifth series - Gently Northern Soul Gently With Class the Lost Child Gently in the Cathedral - and an exciting look Behind the Scenes during filming at Durham Cathedral.
