Ray Winstone plays a successful businessman who is appalled to find himself having to move back in with his dad when his career flounders in the economic recession.
Get Back – The Complete Series (PG) comprises all fifteen episodes from the two series made for BBC One in 1992 and 1993 and is released on DVD on the 18th of July 2016. Also starring Larry Lamb and Carol Harrison, and with a very early TV role for Kate Winslet, Get Back was another huge sitcom success for Birds of a Feather creators Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.
Although Martin Sweet and his brother Albert grew up on a north London council estate, as successful businessmen they’d only return to visit their conniving old dad Bernie when Arsenal were playing at home. But while Albert’s fortunes continue to flourish, the recession has caught up with Martin and it looks as though he and his family will be seeing an awful lot more of Bernie and his grotty old council flat. It’s all a far cry from the exotic holidays, the Porsche and the luxury house in Hatch End.
Get Back – The Complete Series RRP £19.99, courtesy of Network Releasing. Also this month for fans of The Professionals who haven’t got a blu-ray player the DVD version of The Professionals: MkIV (15) is to be released on July 27th.
One of the most successful action thriller series ever made, crime-busting legends Bodie and Doyle have never looked as good as they do in this brand new, restored release of The Professionals: MkIV (15). This seven-disc set featuring all eighteen LWT/Mark1 episodes will be available to own on DVD.
Starring Lewis Collins and Martin Shaw as hard-hitting special agent duo Bodie and Doyle, and with Upstairs Downstairs’ Gordon Jackson as their single-minded boss George Cowley, the fictional exploits of law enforcement department CI5 were a massive ratings success for ITV throughout the series’ initial transmission in the 1970s and ’80s, and are still repeated around the world nearly four decades later. RRP £39.99, from Network Distributing.
