    Based on the novels by Bernard Cornwell, Sharpe (1993-7) ran to 14 full-length television films that follow the adventures of the titular soldier through the later years of the Napoleonic Wars. The programmes are an outstanding achievement for the small screen, dominated by Sean Bean's central performance as the heroic, troubled outsider who turns out to be a resourceful and loyal leader. Bolstered by a strong supporting cast, particularly Daragh O'Malley as Harper and (in later episodes) Abigail Cruttenden as Jane, Sharpe is often visually striking, the action tense and gripping. Consistency is maintained by all 14 episodes being directed by Tom Clegg. --Gary S Dalkin

    Based on the play by Jim Morris. Blood on the Dole follows the lives of four teenagers, two boys and two girls, struggling to cope after being thrust into the real world for the first time after leaving school. Living in deprived Merseyside, the four youths' bright-eyed optimism for their futures and new-found freedom is soon crushed by the realities of unemployment, poverty, and the brutal reality of living and trying to find work in a city in decline. They all soon find themselves in the hopeless situation of facing complete dependence on state handouts, the dole . The four teenagers instead find themselves turning to each other to find the strength to survive. An impressively fresh social commentary and portrayal of teenage love set within a disturbingly authentic account of disenfranchised youth. With austerity still very much a part of our political climate, and recent films such as I, Daniel Blake continuing to challenge such government policy, Blood on the Dole is still a hugely relevant watch today. Produced by BAFTA-winner Alan Bleasdale as a part of the Alan Bleasdale Presents series, a Channel 4 anthology showcasing and given a platform to new, up-and-coming talent young writers. After his successes in landmark dramas including Boys from the Black Stuff, The Monocled Mutineer and GBH, in 1994 Channel 4 gave Alan Bleasdale the opportunity to find and mentor new TV writers. Four big-budget, standalone films were made as a result, with top casts and experimental storylines.

    Alex Cox's Three Businessman is an existentialist fable for the independent businessman. Two travelling art dealers staying in a labyrinthine Liverpool hotel, Frank King (Alex Cox) and Bennie Reyes (Miguel Sandoval of Clear and Present Danger), sit down for dinner only to find that the hotel staff have deserted them. They begin to walk the Mersey streets in search of sustenance, talking about dogs, dinner, the "Plutonium" credit card and the state of the world. But lost without a map, they inadvertently wander half way across the world on public transport in search of their hotel, touching down in Rotterdam, Hong Kong, Japan and Spain. In a desert, they come across a third businessman, Leroy Jasper (Robert Wisdom), clutching a replica of the Mir space station. Soon after, they stumble across a food stand outside a small abode that holds within it the true object of their quest. It is a destination that they have found without looking for. This small, mannered movie grows in stature as it progresses. Sandoval and Cox are amiably crotchety travelling companions. Aided and abetted by jump cuts, the surrealist conceit that allows the businessman to roam across the world without ever realising they have left Liverpool is distinctly Bunuelian (cf. the name of Cox's production company Exterminating Angel Films). On the DVD: An amusing commentary by Alex Cox and writing partner and producer Tod Davies has the added bonus of Cox acting out deleted scenes. The feature appears in widescreen format with an excellent sound and picture transfer, enhanced by Pray for Rain's melancholic soundtrack. But the Debbie Harry and Iggy Pop promo video promised on the sleeve and liner notes does not appear anywhere on the disc. --Chris Campion
