Help- 'One of the most important shows of the Covid era... must-watch' -Digital Spy- is out on DVD 11 October

WITH THE care system at the forefront of the public's minds, as it creaks under the weight of an ageing population, lack of funding and staff and the devastation wrought by a global pandemic, a hard-hitting new drama, Help starring two of Britain's most respected actors Stephen Graham and Jodie Comer, focuses on life in a care home during the early, dark days of Covid 19. This powerful film explores the moving bonds between carer and resident, and the struggle they must face in this unimaginable and unknown world.

Penned by BAFTA award-winner Jack Thorne (His Dark Materials, National Treasure) and directed by BAFTA-winning Marc Munden (The Third Day, Utopia) the drama is set for release on DVD on 11 October 2021, from Acorn Media International, following its transmission on Channel 4.

Set in a Liverpool care home, we meet Sarah (Jodie Comer) (Killing Eve, Doctor Foster), who, after many years of struggling to find work, has found her calling at Bright Sky Homes. Instantly connecting with the residents, she forms a special bond with Tony (Graham - Save Me, This is England), who is in his late 40s, with Early Onset Alzheimer's. Sarah feels like she finally fits in and has a purpose, and the residents feel like they have someone that truly cares.

Then in March 2020, the Coronavirus pandemic hits, and everything is thrown into disarray. Unprepared and ill-equipped, Sarah and her colleagues fight tooth and nail to keep their vulnerable inhabitants safe, but it seems they've been all but abandoned by the powers that be.

A determined Sarah goes to extraordinary lengths to protect those in her care, whose conditions make their suffering and isolation even more traumatic. But the staff's unwavering commitment, compassion and heroic efforts can only do so much, and Sarah is pushed into a dark corner, as she desperately searches for a way out.

'Devastating drama... zooms in on beautifully rendered relationship... simmering with anger but palpably full of love for the people in the eye of the storm'

All Creatures Great and Small is back for Series 2, alongside Series 1 and 2 Boxset on DVD 22 November

The Charming much-loved All Creatures Great and Small, based on the hugely popular novels of James Herriot (aka James Alfred Wight OBE), returns for a second series of veterinary adventures, budding romances, and life in the sleepy town of Darrowby, Yorkshire with its rolling fields, and colourful community.

The first series captivated the nation, ranking as Channel 5's number one British drama of all time and now the much-anticipated series two arrives. Following its run on Channel 5, it comes to DVD alongside the Complete Series 1 & 2 Box set on 22 November 2021, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

We return three months later to follow the trials and tribulations and lives and loves of the locals, surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire dales, where farmers and vets alike savour a foaming pint at the end of a hard day's work.

After Helen Anderson (Rachael Shenton - Hollyoaks) jilted her intended, Hugh Helton (Matthew Lewis - Harry Potter), at the altar, she, and James (Nicholas Ralph - The Most Reluctant Convert C.S. Lewis) can finally address their feelings for each other. But it can be tricky in such a close-knit community where not everyone takes too kindly to Helen's decision. Prompted by James' and Helen's affections, Siegfried (Samuel West - Darkest Hour), Tristan (Callum Woodhouse - The Durrells) and Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley - Deadwater Fell) also reflect on their places in the world, meanwhile a trip back home to Glasgow forces James to choose between duty and love...

Series One begins in 1937, Britain where we meet James Herriot, a newly qualified animal surgeon who moves to a small-town in Yorkshire to begin his first job with the irritable but kind veterinarian Siegfried Farnon. Once there, he quickly discovers that treating the animals is as much about looking out for their owners: there are plenty of people and animals to care for, challenges to meet, and life-affirming lessons to learn along the way.

All Creatures Great and Small will love this soul-soothing and heart-warming family favourite.

'A TV gem... the wholesome and animal-laden drama, set amid a beautiful Yorkshire backdrop is back'

What to Watch




Fascinating documentary The Beatles and India follows a defying cultural turn-point releases on digital 4 October

When the world's most famous band The Beatles made their seminal trip to India in 1968, not only did it inspire a new musical direction for the band, it paved the way for a brand new sound that still resonates across cultural and musical landscapes to this day.

Now a new, award-winning feature documentary The Beatles and India from Silva Screen Productions and Renoir Pictures explores the lasting legacy from their ground-breaking visit to Rishikesh. It sheds light on how India shaped the development of the greatest ever rock band and their pioneering role in bringing together two vastly different cultures.

This unique historical film chronicles the enduring love affair between The Beatles and India that began more than half a century ago. The Beatles and India follows a rarely seen, fascinating time in John, Paul, George and Ringo's career and brings it to life with archive footage, recordings and photographs, alongside eye-witness accounts, expert comments and visually stunning location shots.

In 1968 the legendary band brought their Western celebrity circus to a remote Himalayan ashram in Rishikesh in search of spiritual enlightenment. What happened next had a profound effect on the whole band... and the whole world.

Inspired by Ajoy Bose's book, Across The Universe - The Beatles In India, British Indian music entrepreneur Reynold D'Silva has taken the amazing saga further by producing Bose's directorial debut. Bose and cultural researcher, co-director, Pete Compton, have created an audio-visual presentation that stands apart from the many documentaries on the band, delving deep into the most crucial period of their evolution from the world's most famous pop stars into multi-faceted pioneering musical artists.

The documentary won Best Film Audience Choice and Best Music in Tongues On Fire, the 2021 UK Asian Film Festival, where it premiered earlier this year.

An accompanying album, Songs Inspired By The Film The Beatles And India performed by Indian artists and the score album will be released on Silva Screen Records on 29 October, along with a DVD and Blu-ray release of the film from Cherry Red.
