Long Shadow: The Great War

Based on the prize-winning book, powerful BBC WWI documentary series Long Shadow: The Great War makes its UK DVD debut courtesy of Simply Media.

Renowned British historian David Reynolds explores the enduring impact of The Great War on our world and the shadow it has cast over Europe since the last shots were finally fired. This powerful, eye-opening three part series comes to DVD for the first time on 4 July 2016.

In the series Reynolds aims to change the perceptions of the First World War from the mud, blood, Tommies and trenches to give a sense of the broader consequences of war and its effect over the whole of the twentieth century.

Travelling to locations across Europe-from Slovenia to the Sudetenland, Belfast to Berlin- he examines everything that World War I left in its wake, illuminating how the conflict unleashed forces we still grapple with today.

This remarkable series also chronicles how the experience of war haunted the generation who lived through it, and the soldiers who survived it- dynamic characters such as Benito Mussolini, Eamon de Valera, Philippe Petain, James Ramsay MacDonald and Thomas Masaryk.

Drawing on years of research and a wealth of historical footage, Long Shadow provides a fresh, captivating and-at times-terrifying look at The Great War and its lasting legacy.

Doomwatch

Doomwatch is one of the great, lost TV programmes, a classic slice of science fiction (with the emphasis as much on science as the fiction), a stunningly prescient homegrown programme that followed hot on the heels of Doctor Who. Famed for its look at issues facing us long before anyone else, not least technological developments, the threats they pose and fears over what was happening to the environment, it also set the template for sci-fi TV programmes for years to come - with the series spinning off into the feature film world.

And now, for the first time on Blu-ray and in a newly restored DVD version, the feature length outing for sci-fi thriller Doomwatch arrives on 20 June 2016 courtesy of Screenbound.

How To Lose Jobs And Alienate Girlfriends

When filmmaker Tom Meadmore embarked on his first feature he never envisaged the effect it would have on his life and those closest to him. How To Lose Jobs & Alienate Girlfriends is a music documentary with a difference... and a lesson to us all. How to Lose Jobs & Alienate Girlfriends is a warts-and-all film about the turbulent creative process of two separate, independent music artists as they pursue their dreams to become professional singers and songwriters. It gets its iTunes release on 7 June 2016. In 2008 Tom Meadmore set out to explore the lives of two independent music artists, Amanda Medica and Tony Jackson, as they pursued their dreams of success. The catch? Amanda was Tom's girlfriend and Tony was his boss. Shortly after filming began, Meadmore experiences first-hand the delicacy of the artistic temperament, as his insensitivity and uncompromising quest for the truth threatens to rupture two of the most important relationships in his life and derail the movie in the process. Tom is now well and truly a player in this compelling human drama.
