Andrew Smith has written a review of the BBC's recent Dad's Army - The
Complete First Series DVD.
These early episodes of Dad's Army
haven't had the constant exposure that the colour episodes have had, so
they won't be familiar to many viewers.
A couple of them has been repeated
recently, after they were recovered from someone's garden shed a couple of
years ago, but only then because they were completely restored, and
processed using the remarkable VidFIRE process.
The set has somewhat restored my flagging
faith in the BBC's archive comedy DVD output. The set contains all the
episodes of the first season, and the three surviving episodes of the the
second. Click on the sleeve image, right, or

Fox has released these pictures of their
forthcoming Buffy The Vampire - The Complete DVD Collection box set
(which contains all seven seasons, spread across 39 discs, packaged in a
leather-look box. (The discs themselves are packaged in seven digistacks).
The set will feature all the bonus materials from the original discs, and
a bonus letter from creator Joss Whedon, which is "inserted down the side
of the discs, in which he gives his thoughts on the whole Buffy
experience". Dimensions are 130mm wide x 200mm tall x 150mm deep.
The set is limited to 10,000 copies, and
has an RRP of £199.99.
Century Fox Home Entertainment will release the third and final series of
Millennium on October the 25th.
The six-disc set will feature all
twenty-three episodes, which pick up a few months after the apocalyptic
events at the end of the second season. The third series sees Frank Black
paired with a rookie FBI agent (played by Klea Scott, last seen in a small
role in Michael Mann's Collateral).
The new set will feature a forty-two minute
featurette, Endgame: The Making of Millennium Series 3, and a
twelve-minute featurette titled Between The Lines. Three episodes
will feature commentary tracks: The Innocents and Goodbye To All
That (by Lance Henriksen and Clea Scott) and Collateral Damage
(by director Thomas J. Wright).
The press release states that the episodes
will be presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen format, with Dolby
Digital 2.0 audio and English HoH subtitles. I believe that this will be
the first time the series will have been presented in its original
widescreen ratio. RRP for the set is £39.99. There will also be a box set
of all three seasons, with an RRP of £89.99. This will also be released on
October the 25th.
The rest of today's update has a distinctly
First up, there are a couple of new
Spaghetti Western reviews for you. Mark Frost has reviewed
Enzo G. Castellari's
Keoma, and Matt West has reviewed
Texas, Adios. The two films are being released on Monday, as a
double bill, by a relatively new company, Argent. Click on the sleeve

There are two new soundtrack CDs from
Film Score Monthly which you might like to check out. They're available
now from specialist soundtrack retailers, or directly from the
first features Franz Waxman's typically-lyrical score from MGM's epic 1961
remake of Cimarron.
The film was directed by Anthony Mann,
perhaps better known for his films starring James Stewart, which
completely changed Stewart's image, and revitalised his career.
Cimarron tells the story of a family of Oklahoma land rush pioneers,
and spanned twenty-five years of their lives, all presented in glorious
The film's production was a mess: the film
was mis-cast, filming continued after Mann had departed the production,
and its costs spiralled. Although it's mixed badly in the movie, Waxman's
powerful score is one of the few elements that works in the film's favour,
helping to hold the stodgy melodrama together. Indeed, many of Waxman's
cues were severely curtailed, as last minute editing took its toll.
Cimarron marked Waxman's second - and last - collaboration with the
director (it was one of the last films Mann made - he died in 1967).
Film Score Monthly's disc has been remixed
from the 35mm three-track stereo masters. The disc contains the complete
score (at almost eighty-minutes, it pushes CD capacity to its limits). The
disc also features a five-minute suite of outtakes, which offers alternate
versions of three cues, including the Main Title and Finale.
The disc comes with a lavishly-illustrated, twenty-four page booklet,
featuring extensive production notes and a track-by-track guide, by
dare say if you asked fifty film music fans to name fifty film music
composers, the name George Bassman wouldn't pass their lips. Unless, of
course, they'd heard the second of FSM's new releases, which features
music from two films scored by the New York-born composer, Ride The
High County (a.k.a. Guns in the Afternoon, 1962) and Mail
Order Bride (a.k.a. West of Montana, 1964).
Ride The High Country has endured,
partly because it's a pretty good movie, but mainly because it was
directed by the great Sam Peckinpah. (Shamefully, it's one of many
Peckinpah films not available on DVD). The film, about an uneasy encounter
between two battle-worn men, one of whom is charged with carrying a
sizeable quantity of gold...
The film starred two genre legends: Joel
McCrea, nearing the end of a movie career that spanned almost fifty years,
and Randolph Scott, making his swansong after thirty years on screen.
Ride The High Country didn't get
much support when it was originally released (as the bottom half of a
double-bill with the now virtually-forgotten The Tartars), but it
has aged rather well, and still appears regularly on TV.
The Ride The High Country disc also
features another homespun score by Bassman, Mail Order Bride, a
film made by many of the same cast and crew members (although this time it
was helmed by Burt Kennedy, another director who made a career directing
Westerns). Mail Order Bride is a buddy comedy, starring Barnaby Jones'
Buddy Ebsen and Keir Dullea, as a man who is forced into marriage if he
wants to claim his inheritance.
Both of Bassman's scores are unmistakably
Western scores, often falling into the clichés of the genre (jaunty
harmonica, banjos, etc), but they're undeniably melodic, and the sound
quality is excellent (as it is with the Cimarron disc). Both
scores have been remixed and re-mastered in
stereo from the original three-track 35mm film masters.
They're not really my cup of tea, but I'd certainly recommend them to fans
of the genre. As usual, the disc comes with a swanky twenty-four page
illustrated booklet, and comprehensive background notes and track
breakdown (by Peckinpah authority Nick Redman and label boss Lukas
Both discs are limited editions of 3000

Let's kick off the week with three brand
new reviews! The first is of Michel Gondry's brilliant science-fiction
romance Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which is being
released on DVD on October the 4th. Focus Features are releasing the disc
via Momentum. There a couple of minor, but irksome, technical problems
with the disc that the producers apparently aren't going to fix. Read the

We have two new competitions today (I've
kept THX 1138 open for an extra week). Today we're offering two
copies of Granada Ventures' Thriller Series 1 DVD box set, which
contains ten episodes of the popular ATV series, from 1973. I'm also very
pleased to welcome Titan Books, who are running their first competition
with us. They're offering five copies of the Stargate SG-1 - The
Essential Scripts book. Click on the banners, above, or
here for the THX
here for the Thriller competition, or
here for the
Stargate SG-1 competition!
Speaking of banners, I've made a few
changes this week which may mean that some of you are seeing images on the
site that were previously being blocked by some anti-virus software. If
the site looks a bit different, that's probably why!
some exciting news for Hammer fans. DD Video has announced that they're
going to release several more Hammer titles next year. They will include a
double-disc collection of the World of Hammer series (presumably
including the episode that's never been released on DVD, War).
Although it's not terribly thrilling in of itself, it might mean that UK
collectors will be free to to ditch the Anchor Bay discs that have been
superseded with Warner Home Video's superior PAL transfers. Since many of
the Anchor Bay discs are due to go out of print any second, there might
soon be a thriving market for second-hand copies on Ebay! The World of
Hammer set is due in February 2005.
DD Video is also releasing the 1984
Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense TV series. It's not the first
time that the series has been available on home video, but the VHS
release, from Brent Walker, was incredibly rare. I used to visit dozens of
video rental stores in the mid-eighties, and I only ever saw one set of
copies, and that was through the window of a shop that was closed! DD
Video is splitting the series into two sets, one due in February, the
other in March. The sets will feature newly-recorded interviews with
several Hammer stalwarts who worked on the show, including directors John
Hough and Val Guest, and the series' script editor, John Peacock. The
discs will also feature extensive stills archives for each episode.
Other Hammer titles due from DD Video
include three early science-fiction films, Spaceways, Stolen
Face and Four-Sided Triangle. These will be supplemented with
short films from Hammer's extensive archive, including The Right Person,
Operation Universe and Copenhagen. These are expected to
come out in April.
DD Video reckon they will have practically
exhausted all the commercially-viable Hammer titles available from the
company once they release Terence Fisher's car-racing drama Mask of
Dust, in late spring, 2005. Unless rights held by other companies
revert back to Hammer, that's more or less all, folks!
Not that that will stop DD Video's plans to
become the foremost British horror label. They've pencilled in two
oft-delayed titles for release in January: Blood Beast Terror and
Island of Terror, and another pair of films in March: Curse of the
Crimson Altar and The Devil's Men.
In May DD Video plans to release BBC
Scotland's 1979 series about a team of paranormal investigators, The
Ωmega Factor, which starred James Hazeldine and Louise Jameson.
My thanks to Colin at DD Video for that
Home Video is releasing a five-disc box set showcasing the work of
director George Stevens on December the 6th. The George Stevens 100th
Anniversary Collection set will feature two landmark films, Giant and
Woman of the Year, the colour WWII documentary D-Day To Berlin and
a documentary, George Stevens: A Filmmaker's Journey. The release
ties in with a season of Stevens' films running at the National Film
Theatre, between November the 11th and November the 29th. Woman of the
Year, which paired Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn for the first
time, will come with a trailer; Giant is a two-disc Special Edition
with an introduction by the director's son, George Stevens Jr, a
commentary track by George Stevens Jr, screenwriter Ivan Moffat and critic
Steven Farber; documentaries; New York and Hollywood premiere footage and
photo' galleries. The 1985 documentary George Stevens: A Filmmaker's
Journey features interviews with several Hollywood luminaries,
including Fred Astaire, Frank Capra, Cary Grant, John Huston, Alan Pakula
and Elizabeth Taylor.
Here's a look at the sleeves for Warner
Home Video's Hammer Horror DVD
Collection, which makes
the titles previously only available in Warner Home Video's Hammer and
Horror box sets available separately. Release date is the 11th of

The rumoured release from Buena Vista of a
special edition of Disney’s Bambi has appeared on some of the
retailers for February the 14th 2005. There is no word on the content yet,
but it has an RRP of £22.99.
Paramount has a special edition of Top
Gun up for December the 6th, with £19.99 as its RRP. But again, no
word on the content yet, though. It will probably be very similar to, if
not identical to, the R1 version, which was announced recently.
Universal have a Coen Brothers
Collection showing on some of the retailers for October the 18th. The
box set features The Big Lebowski, Blood Simple, The
Hudsucker Proxy and Barton Fink. This marks the first UK
release of the Director’s Cut version of Blood Simple, which is
about three minutes shorter then the original theatrical release. The
version recently certificated by the BBFC is in widescreen format, too
(the old version was full-frame). The set has an RRP of £39.99.
As a follow-up to my report last week that
Universal have individual
volumes of The Invisible Man / The Phantom of the Opera and The
Mummy / The Creature from the Black Lagoon showing for October the
11th, joining them are re-issues of
Dracula / House of Dracula,
Frankenstein / Bride of Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man / Werewolf
of London. All five have RRPs of £9.99 (and not £19.99 as I reported
Finally, for the films, an unlisted label
(I’m guessing Instant Vision) has
Charlie Chan In Paris,
starring Warner Oland as the master oriental detective, showing for
November the 29th. It has £13.99 as its RRP.
Now the TV releases…
The Mausoleum Club details of Network’s
Ripping Yarns – The Complete Series
and The Sweeney – The
Complete Series 4
has been posted. Both releases have had their episodes digitally restored.
In addition to that…
The Ripping Yarns
box set has
audience laughter-free tracks; commentaries by Michael Palin and Terry
Jones for all 9 episodes; deleted scene from Murder at Moorstones Manor;
Comic Roots, a documentary from 1983 in which Michael Palin returns
to his comic roots hometown of Sheffield; Secrets, the first
episode from the 1973 series Black and Blue; a black comedy written
by Michael Palin and Terry Jones and starring Warren Mitchell, unseen
since its original broadcast; Stills gallery; script PDFs from Michael
Palin's archives; and a Commemorative booklet.
The script PDFs are: Tompkinson’s Schooldays (Original script);
Across the Andes by Frog (Script / Alteration to beginning / Radio
Commentary Script); Testing of Eric Eric Olthwaite (Camera script);
Whinfrey’s Last Case (Original script); The Curse of the
Claw (Original handwritten script); and Murder at Moorstones Manor
The Secrets episode
from Black and Blue (an anthology comedy drama series of
sixty-minute plays) is sourced from an “off-air” copy (similar to the
Steptoe and Son episodes retained by Ray Galton) made for series
producer Mark Shivas. This was transferred to VHS at some point, copies of
which are currently held by the
National Film and Television Archive,
which are the only copies remaining. Quite a bit of clean-up work has been
done of this with the, but the quality will probably be similar to the VHS
off-air episode, The Royal Wedding, included in the recent
Death US Do Part – The Complete 1974 Series.
Network are really going all
the way, it’s a jaw-dropping list of contents for any Archive TV release.
Then you look at the RRP - £24.99 – and your jaw drops even lower...
The Sweeney – The
Complete Series 4
box set will include a new
Dolby 5.1 track; Original as-broadcast mono track; Music only tracks;
Episode introductions by guest stars James Warrior, George Sewell, Jenny
Runacre, Nick Stringer, Gary Morecambe and Peter Wight; The Electric
Theatre Show interviews with John Thaw, Dennis Waterman and producer
Ted Childs from 1978; Sweeney 2 trailer with introduction by Ken
Hutchison and James Warrior; Sweeney 2 promotional gallery PDF;
This is Your Life - Dennis Waterman extract from 1978; This is Your
Life - John Thaw extract from 1981; Stills gallery; The Sweeney Annual
1978 PDF; Extract from Behind the Sunshine recounting Morecambe and
Wise's association with John Thaw and Dennis Waterman; Out-takes; and
Series 4 textless titles with dual sound.
Which is, again, a mighty fine
set of extras to grace any archive TV release. The set has the usual RRP
The currently listed dates for
these are Ripping Yarns – The Complete Series on the 11th of
The Sweeney – The Complete Series 4
a week later on the 18th. As ever don’t be surprised if these dates slip –
look at the content of these releases, that’s a large amount of work
that’s being done…
The rumoured release of the Live Aid
concert has appeared on some of the retailers for November the 8th, from
Warner's music video division, Warner Vision. No word on the full content
as yet, but the release has an RRP of £39.99. A recent report said that
Led Zeppelin had refused permission for their appearance to be included,
because they weren’t happy with their performance. Instead they have
apparently made a sizeable donation to the charity.
Coinciding with a new series of his
World Tour, Universal is releasing a whole raft of Billy Connolly
DVDs on October the 11th. These are Erect For 30 Years, Live
2002, Live At The Apollo, One Night Stand Down Under / Best

World Tour of New Zealand – is listed for the 6th of December

Also listed for the 11th of October from an
unknown label (but I’m guessing Universal on the strength of the above
Billy Connolly releases) is a release of Jasper
Carrott’s 24 Carrott Gold.
It has the £19.99 RRP.
Universal’s Playback division has the third
series of Judi Dench and Geoffrey Palmer’s sitcom As Time Goes By
showing for October the 25th. Its RRP is £24.99.
Thanks to Ian K. McLachlan for
notifying me that Play have put up details for The Lucy Show box
set. I was wrong in my assumption that the episodes included would all be
from Season 1 (I was expecting a chronological release) – it will
include two episodes from Season 1, fourteen episodes from
Season 5 and two episodes from Season 6. The set will also
include a Lucy Meets John Wayne featurette, all for an RRP of
Now, let’s have a look at some
of BBC Worldwide’s titles…
The next sentence isn’t
entirely unexpected, but one which we all hoped wouldn’t appear on this
page: Blake’s 7 – Series
2 has been delayed until next year! Ho hum…
Choices Direct has a new date of January
the 1st (that’s 2005!), but as that’s a Saturday I’ve just moved it to the
In the Pipeline section until we have a more definite date (I did
just say definite then didn’t I…? Hmm, ah well…).
But don’t worry BBC Worldwide are bringing
us more Only Fools And Horses releases to make up for it – Best
of’s – yay! (err…… groan). But, of course BBC Worldwide aren’t stupid
when it comes to this, these three All the Best volumes which are
listed for the 1st of November will sell like hotcakes in the Christmas
market and they will make a tidy bundle from them. You just hope they put
the money to good use, like er… making sure there aren’t any problems with
the Blake’s 7 – Series 3 & 4 box sets! Only Fools And
Horses – All the Best Volumes 1 -3 have RRPs of £15.99 each.
With the trail for the start of the series
currently on high priority on the BBC channels the release of Shoebox
Zoo - Series 1, the corporation’s new CGI-fest children’s show, is
being listed for the 15th of November for an RRP of £19.99.
Thanks to Steve for emailing me that a
release of the BBC 2 series Grumpy Old Men is showing for November
the 15th. The content of which is listed as four episodes and the
Christmas Special all for £15.99.
Choices Direct has put up an Open All
Hours – Series 1 & 2 box set for October the 1st. It has an RRP of
DD Video are pooling together some of their
recent John Thaw releases into a box set - John Thaw – The Dramas –
for a listed date of the 8th of November. The £39.99 set features
Bomber Harris, We'll Support You Evermore, Dinner At The
Sporting Club, Goodnight Mr Tom, The Waiting Time and
Into The Blue.
Granada Ventures are the label behind a
release of the recent BBC 2 comedy series featuring look-a-likes -
Double Take. It has a date of November the 22nd and an RRP of £19.99,
with Behind the Scenes (running to 15m15s) cleared at the BBFC.
Also showing for the 22nd of November, but
from Paramount, is a collection of the BBC 3 comedy series 3 Non
Blondes. Featuring both series and the Christmas Special, with
Bonus Blondes (25m95s); The Stage Show (1m04s), The Mini
Pilot (7m32s), Blonde Bumpers (8m51s), cleared at the BBFC and
listed on some retailers. The set has an RRP of £29.99.
