Dixon of Dock Green

EVENING ALL. One of the longest running police series on British television starring the renowned Jack Warner in the title role, Dixon of Dock Green set the tone for television police drama and paved the way for all that would follow.

Created by prolific writer Ted Willis (Sergeant Cork, The Adventures of Black Beauty), Dixon of Dock Green Collection Three features the complete 22nd series of the popular policing drama, the last series ever made.

This final series finds Sgt. George Dixon (Jack Warner - The Blue Lamp, The Ladykillers) operating from the back office as Collator for Dock Green, tracking, guiding and advising on events in the criminal underworld as they impacted on the otherwise peaceful 'manor' of Dock Green.

Field Punishment No.1

Based on real people and events, the powerful, moving and often brutal historical drama Field Punishment No. 1 tells one of the most remarkable and controversial stories of World War I: the stance taken by New Zealand's first conscientious objectors, who endured incarceration, torture and even death for refusing to be conscripted against their will. This hard-hitting drama will be released on DVD by Odyssey Video on 20 April 2015 to coincide with Anzac Day (25 April), Australia and New Zealand's great day of national remembrance, which commemorates the anniversary of the first major military action fought by their forces during World War I. The release also coincides with the centenary of one of that conflict's most legendary, protracted and bloody campaigns - a campaign that inspired Anzac Day, cost thousands of Australian and New Zealand lives and can be summed up in one word: Gallipoli. Directed by Peter Burger (Waitangi, When We Go to War) and written by the award-winning team of Donna Malane and Paula Boock (Time Trackers, Until Proven Innocent), Field Punishment No. 1 tells the story of the hundreds of New Zealand 'conchies' who refused to fight in what they regarded as a war that 'set brother against brother' by focussing on the experiences of fourteen of them, notably Archibald Baxter (Fraser Brown - Harry, The Pretender), the country's most famous conscientious objector and father of the celebrated poet, James K. Baxter.
