Underbelly Series 2

Australia, 1976. Hard drugs hit the nation like a tsunami. Drug money flooded the underworld. With new money came a new breed of hard men and willing women. Two names stood above all others - changing the face of organised crime in Australia forever - Aussie Bob Trimbole (Roy Billing - Aquamarine) and Kiwi Terry Clark (Matthew Newton - The Bet).

Now this story is told in the second series of the multi-award winning Australian true crime series Underbelly Series 2: A Tale of Two Cities, and comes to DVD on 5 September with music composed by Golden Globe winner Burkhard von Dallwitz (The Truman Show). This season is set around the drug trade of New South Wales and Victoria between 1976-1987, and follows the rise and fall of real life Australian crime underworld figures, told from both sides of the law.

Happy Ever After

Terry and June Fletcher (Terry Scott and June Whitfield - Terry and June) are a middle-aged, middle-class couple in middle England whose children recently left home. However their path to domestic bliss is soon interrupted by the permanent arrival of scatty Aunt Lucy (Beryl Cooke - The Bill) and her chatterbox mynah bird.

Running from 1974 to 1979 across 41 episodes, including the Comedy Playhouse pilot and Christmas specials, essentially the same characters would be transposed to the even longer-running Terry and June (1979-1987). Relive the exploits of TV's happiest hapless couple from the beginnings of their perennial partnership in this original series, directed and produced by BAFTA winners Ray Butt (Only Fools and Horses) and Peter Whitmore (Yes Minister), which arrives on DVD 26 September 2016.

The Commitments

25 years ago, on the big screen, wannabe band manager Jimmy Rabbitte put this advert in the local newspaper and before long a loveable ragtag group of Dubliners got together to form the soulful sounds of The Commitments.

Renowned director Alan Parker's (Midnight Express, Bugsy Malone), funny, uplifting, gritty film, based on Roddy Doyle's (The Snapper, The Van), debut novel, took the world by storm on its 1991 release, garnering critical acclaim and awards galore including a BAFTA for Best Film. It has since spawned a slew of touring bands and a hugely successful stage musical which commences its UK tour later this year.

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this seminal film, RLJ Entertainment is thrilled to release The Commitments Special Edition, featuring a host of bonus features, including brand new interviews with Alan Parker and cast members and much much more. It will be released in both Blu-ray and DVD formats, with a digital copy to download, watch and own, and a collectible booklet, on 19 September 2016.

In the small town of Frenchman's Bend, Mississippi where life is dominated by elderly patriarch Will Varner (Welles) life is stirred at the arrival of drifter Ben Quick (Newman). Meanwhile, Will's daughter Clara (Woodward) and son Jody (Franciosa) are a disappointment to him. When Will meets Ben, he sees in him the passion and drive that Jody lacks. He invites Ben to live with the family, and Ben launches a relentless campaign to break Clara's desperate measures to prove his manhood - a situation that sparks both deadly danger and shocking revelations over the course of one long, hot summer.

Sour Grapes

It's the kind of story that sounds more like a work of fiction, or the kind of yarn recounted after a few bottles of Burgundy, but the tale of Rudy Kurniawan, wine connoisseur and trader, who sold a whopping $35 million worth of vintage wine at just two auctions, is as true as it comes.

With a plot that has more than a hint of international crime thriller and a dose of satire, SOUR GRAPES - deftly directed by Jerry Rothwell (Town of Runners) and Reuben Atlas (Brothers Hypnotic) and a Met Film and Faites Un Voeu co-production -features FBI agents, dodgy auction houses, international collectors, money men, and outraged wine producers. See for yourself when SOUR GRAPES opens across the UK on 16 September.

World War Two 1942 and Hitler's Soft Underbelly

The British fought the Second World War to defeat Hitler. World War Two 1942 and Hitler's Soft Underbelly asks why, then, did they spend so much of the conflict battling through North Africa and Italy?

Reynolds reassesses Winston Churchill's conviction that the Mediterranean was the 'soft underbelly' of Hitler's Europe. Travelling to Egypt and Italian battlefields like Cassino, scene of some of the worst carnage in western Europe, he shows how, in reality, the 'soft underbelly' became a dark and dangerous obsession for Churchill.

Reynolds reveals a prime minister very different from the jaw-jutting bulldog of Britain's 'finest hour' in 1940 - a leader who was politically vulnerable at home, desperate to shore up a crumbling British empire abroad, losing faith in his army and even ready to deceive his American allies if it might delay fighting head to head against the Germans in northern France. It arrives on DVD 5 September 2016.
