Pioneering, enormously influential and often challenging, Armchair Theatre was ITV's flagship drama anthology series. Bringing high-quality contemporary drama to a wider viewing public, the series easily demonstrated the network's potential to rival the BBC's drama output with diverse and powerful plays by some of Britain's most gifted writers. This set comprises twelve plays taken from the series' first incarnation, produced by ABC and broadcast in the 1950s and '60s. An astonishing roll-call of writers includes J.B. Priestley, James Mitchell, Fay Weldon and Alun Owen; Patrick McGoohan, Stanley Baker, Billie Whitelaw, Colin Blakely, Judy Cornwell and Hugh Griffith are among the celebrated and accomplished actors appearing in groundbreaking dramas ranging from the playful to the poignant.
Leslie Grantham (EastEnders) stars as maverick cop Mick Raynor in this six-part thriller set in the no-man's land where the underworld meets the establishment. While Raynor is posing as a bent ex-policeman, he is still very much part of the force - using his current identity to gain information on a complex web of organised crime and high-level corruption lurking beneath the surface of British public life. Raynor doesn't make arrests every week. He's after the big fish: the gangsters with knighthoods; the politicians who are laundering the money. In their pursuit, he faces the most dangerous assignments that will stretch his nerves - and his conscience - to the very limit. Also starring Robert Stephens (as Raynor's controller, Commander Oakwood), with appearances by Robert Carlyle and Sharon Duce, 99-1 was written by British playwright and dramatist Terry Johnson, recipient of nine British theatre awards including Olivier Awards for Best Comedy, Playwright of the Year at the Critics Circle Theatre Awards, Writers Guild Awards for Best Play for two consecutive years, and the 2010 Tony Award; this first series was produced by BAFTA winner Steve Clark-Hall. Originally broadcast in 1994, Series One is available here for the first time on DVD.
An extraordinary Hamlet... a milestone Hamlet - Manchester Evening News Shakespeare's most iconic work, Hamlet explodes with big ideas and is the ultimate story of loyalty, love, betrayal, murder and madness. From its sell-out run at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre comes a film version of this unique and critically acclaimed production of HAMLET with BAFTA-nominee Maxine Peake in the title role. This groundbreaking stage production, directed by Sarah Frankcom, was Royal Exchange s fastest-selling show in a decade. Alongside Maxine Peake as the eponymous prince, a number of other roles, including Polonious and Rosencrantz, are also played by women. HAMLET is brought to cinemas by film director Margaret Williams, whose Written on Skin (Royal Opera House/BBC) won many awards including the Diapason d'Or. The film is produced by Anne Beresford and Debbie Gray, the team behind the highly successful cinema broadcast of Peter Grimes on Aldeburgh Beach which Margaret also directed.
The directorial debut of the great Joseph L Mankiewicz (All About Eve, Suddenly, Last Summer), Dragonwyck is a glorious melding of Gothic chills and baroque melodrama. A beautiful Connecticut farm girl (Gene Tierney) finds herself embroiled in a conspiracy of madness, murder and intrigue after she agrees to become governess and nurse to the family of her distant cousin (Vincent Price). Echoing Hitchcock’s Rebecca (1940), and reuniting stars Tierney and Price for the third time in as many years (having previously starred together in Otto Preminger’s Laura, 1944, and John M Stahl’s Leave Her to Heaven, 1945), Dragonwyck is a magnificently creepy chiller with a career-defining performance by Price, luminous cinematography by the legendary Arthur C Miller, and a wonderful Alfred Newman score.
