This release contains all six episodes originally transmitted in 1993. As John Stafford takes up a new position with Europol Alan Cade replaces him as Chief Constable at Eastland East Anglia; Anne Stewart continues as Cade's deputy. While Cade is every bit as capable as his predecessor he finds that the challenge of frontline policing continues to be eclipsed by the pressure to manage ever-tighter budgets and justify expenditure. Sharing Stafford's tolerant but scrupulous approach he also faces ongoing conflict with his superiors and certain local politicians whose cavalier attitudes towards issues of civil liberties contrast sharply with his own.

  • Bloody Sunday [2002] Bloody Sunday | DVD | (16/06/2003) from £43.99  |  Saving you £-34.00 (-340.30%)  |  RRP £9.99

    If it was a piece of fiction, they'd say that it could never happen. Bloody Sunday is a dramatisation of one of the most shameful episodes in recent British history. Released to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Derry civil rights march and also the re-opening of enquiries into what really happened, the film is one of the most incisive, explosive works ever to emerge from British cinema. The premise is simple--to follow what took place in the city on 30th January 1972, when an anti-internment march descended into violence and left 13 unarmed civilians dead at the hands of the British army. Abandoning traditional filmmaking methods in favour of a more documentary style, Bloody Sunday is frighteningly realistic, especially when detailing the chaos into which the peaceful demonstration descended. Those who are only familiar with James Nesbitt through his lighter work (Cold Feet for example) may find this something of a shock, but he excels in the role of local politician Ivan Cooper. Admittedly there is a danger in presenting historical facts in a dramatic manner, no matter how painstaking the research, even though much of the dialogue here is taken straight from testimony and actual military transcripts. But if any question of bias arises, it’s worth remembering that this film was written and directed by an Englishman, stars a Derry protestant as well as a young man whose uncle was killed during the march, and was produced as an Anglo-Irish project. The result is an unforgettable and unflinching piece of cinema not to be missed. On the DVD: Bloody Sunday absolutely has to be seen on DVD. The slew of extra features not only complement the film, but place it in the overall context of the past, present and future of Northern Ireland. The various interviews with cast, director and producers paint a picture of a film that sets out to heal wounds and build bridges on all sides and to break the cinematic mould. Thus the majority of the cast were not actors but ordinary people from the Derry area, with the majority of the British soldiers played by ex-military personnel, some of whom had served in Northern Ireland themselves. As more and more of the story behind this remarkable film is revealed, so its impact becomes more intense and its aims and purpose more successful.--Phil Udell

    Tim Pigott-Smith (The Vice) stars as Chief Constable John Stafford in this police procedural drama series with a difference. The Chief shows a police force undergoing a culture change as the outspoken and deeply committed Stafford attempts to reform crime-prevention policies and challenge the frequently unacceptable behaviour of his front-line officers; there are always difficult decisions to be made often at a professional and personal cost. The cast of this powerful drama series also includes Judy Loe (Casualty) as Stafford's doctor wife Elizabeth Eastenders star Tony Caunter and Roger Lloyd Pack. John Stafford is back at work at East Anglia's Eastland station following his temporary suspension. While Stafford continues to challenge what he regards as outmoded practices and attitudes he and his deputy Anne Stewart face more tense situations at the sharp end of policing; this second series originally screened in 1991 sees them tackling animal rights activism and environmental protest negotiating throughout a dramatic siege and dealing with the aftermath of the tragic death of one of Eastland's officers.

  • Winston Churchill - The Wilderness Years - Vol. 1: Down And Out / Politics Are Foul [1981] Winston Churchill - The Wilderness Years - Vol. 1: Down And Out / Politics Are Foul | DVD | (26/11/2001) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £5.99

    It’s easy to forget that before fronting the British war effort through most of World War II, Winston Churchill had spent the previous decade isolated in Parliament and in internal opposition to the Conservative party. Winston Churchill: The Wilderness Years dramatises this period in which the growing menace of Nazism in Germany was met with indifference, even fear by governments of the day who were more concerned with their survival than in serving those who had elected them. Churchill is perceptively played by Robert Hardy, confirming the image without falling into caricature. Visionary and obstinate by turns, he galvanises his supporters and enrages his enemies with a passion borne of conviction. A seasoned British cast includes Peter Barkworth as the amiable but ineffectual Stanley Baldwin, Eric Porter as the truly "out of time" Neville Chamberlain, Edward Woodward as the scheming Samuel Hoare and Nigel Havers as the tragically flawed Randolph Churchill. Martin Gilbert has done a persuasive job transforming his novel into a TV script, the scenes in the House of Commons having a gritty reality that makes compulsive viewing. On the DVD: it’s a pity that the Southern Pictures production, first screened in 1981, has emerged so dimly in this incarnation. Has the master tape eroded so badly, or was it simply not available? However, it’s worth putting up with the technical defects to enjoy this historically informed and grippingly dramatic serial. --Richard Whitehouse
