In the Red DVD

| DVD

A biting comedy thriller that parodies every pillar of the British establishment from politics and the police to the Bank of England and the dear old BBC. In the Red is set in Spring 1998, a year into a New Labour Government, with the country feeling that nothing has, in fact, got better at all. When a serial killer targets a number of bank managers and financiers, the nation responds with a curious mixture of mild outrage and quiet admiration. George Cragge, a raddled BBC Radio crime reporter with a fondness for drink and a healthy contempt for BBC management,... joins the murder hunt after he begins to receive mysterious telephone calls from the killer. Leading the murder hunt is his old ally, DCI Jefferson. An immaculately constructed whodunnit, and an irreverent, yet affectionate romp through the corridors of British power. Malcolm Bradbury (The History Man) adapted Mark Tavener's bestselling novel for the BBC. The acclaimed features an all-star cast including Warren Clarke, Alun Armstrong, Siobhan Redmond, Rik Mayall, Keith Barron, John Bird, Stephen Fry and Richard Griffiths. ˜Wonderfully funny and highly topical' Telegraph ˜A laugh-aloud satire' Sunday [show more]
