STATION X - The Codebreakers Of Bletchley Park - The Complete Series- 2 Pal DVDs - 205mins (Ch4 1999 16/9 WS) "A very detailed series that chronicles the astounding work British and American codebreakers carried out at Bletchley Park during WWII. The style of the programme captures the camaraderie and atmosphere of what it must have been like to work with the often eccentric codebreakers. It also shows the dedication and hard work of the huge numbers of support staff. Highly recommended!"
"This is a wonderful programme. Excellently shot, superbly scripted, the subject matter held my attention right the way through. One of the best television programmes I have ever seen."
"This illustraites how a war can be won with brains rather than brawn" (T. Sale)

All This and World War II 1976 PAL DVD 90mins approx 
I have this very rare film, now on DVD in fairly good quality
 
The film's message (and final song) is 'Give peace a chance'. It is a remarkable collage of film clips (from movies and documentaries and actual war footage) and music. The film is an entertaining presentation of history, showing many aspects of the second world war. Particularly interesting for historians of WWII and/or Beatles music.
Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
This DVD includes a 50 min Documentary on Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi butcher of Prague.

Z for Zachariah BBC 1984 play DVD this is a VHS recording transfered to DVD, the quality is not very good, but due to the subject matter, very watchable.
A post-Holocaust Welsh valley is populated by just two families, who gradually die off to leave just one man, Anthony Andrews, and a girl, Pippa Hinchley, struggling to keep alive in the lonely wilderness. Image of Andrews dragging his survival kit behind him, and his grisly death from radiation sickness after bathing in a contaminated stream stayed, strangely, in the memory.

JUMPING THE QUEUE - BBC 1989 Review:
I saw this well-focused British television film as a one-parter TV play in 1990 and always remembered its emotional depth and intimacy. It's essentially a chamber piece, a one-woman story, and a story inexorably headed towards tragedy. It is headlined by Sheila Hancock, the actress who chronicled her life with partner and 'television detective 'John Thaw in a touching autobiographical/ biographical volume. The performances are strong and memorable, most of all for the maintenance of sympathetic identification with the lead character. It's a story of one woman's decision in the face of few other options. A fine piece of television theatre, this film has been unavailable since its screening and is seldom repeated. It would be fantastic if this ever became available in any shape or form -
Well it now is Available - as a DVD, transfer from a VCR recording, the quality is acceptable - running time approx 150 mins.
Price, inc UK & EU P&P is £15.
