All Creatures Great and Small DVD release

Beloved classic All Creatures Great and Small - based on the life and times of veterinary surgeon and writer James Herriot (aka James Alfred Wight OBE) - gets a brand spanking new remake with all the charm of the original, arriving on DVD 23 November 2020 courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its record breaking run on Channel 5. Launching to a whopping 5 million viewers, the series is their #1 British drama ever and highest rated programme so far this year.

Newcomer Nicholas Ralph plays the young vet who is taken under the wing of renowned veterinary surgeon Seigfried Farnon (Samuel West - Darkest Hour, Mr Selfridge) in the stunning countryside of 1940s Yorkshire.

As James settles in to rural professional life, he must prove himself and his credentials under Siegfried's watchful eye, all whilst trying not to be distracted by Siegfried's unruly younger brother Tristan (Callum Woodhouse - The Durrells, Cold Feet), stern housekeeper Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley - Deadwater Fell, Patrick Melrose), and beautiful farmer Helen Alderson (Rachel Shenton - White Gold, Hollyoaks) with whom romance may be on the cards...

Featuring a menagerie of guest stars including screen legend the late Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones, Victoria), Nigel Havers (Chariots of Fire, Coronation Street), Matthew Lewis (Harry Potter, Ripper Street), Philip Gascoyne (The ABC Murders, Peaky Blinders) and Naomi Radcliffe (Three Girls, Coronation Street), our vet heroes must handle everything from horses with injured hooves, feline mix-ups, milk-fever, Mrs Pumphrey's Pekingese Tricky Woo, and of course classic calfing scenes, there's something for every animal lover.

All Creatures Great and Small will love this feel-good, fun family show.




DAWN OF THE DEAD LIMITED EDITION 4K UHD RELEASE & LIMITED EDITION BLU-RAY

This Autumn, Second Sight Films presents the horror release to end all horror releases. Fans, aficionados and collectors are in for a treat as horror maestro George A. Romero's long-awaited, highly anticipated Dawn of the Dead, finally gets the home entertainment release it deserves.

Widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest horror films of all time, this seminal work has been painstakingly restored and arrives in two separate format releases: Dawn Of The Dead Limited Edition 4K UHD and Dawn Of The Dead Limited Edition Blu-ray on 16 November 2020.

Both Box Sets arrive in stunning packaging featuring the original iconic poster art plus newly commissioned artwork inside. These include a whopping four discs - with three versions of the film: The Theatrical Cut, The Extended ('Cannes') Cut and The Argento Cut, plus stacks of special features that take in new and archive interviews, including the previously unreleased The Lost Romero Dawn Interview. With commentaries and documentaries galore, soundtrack CDs and a stunning brand new 160-page hardback book Dissecting the Dead complete with brand new writing, this is a veritable treasure trove and a must have for any collector. Please see list in full below.

The film originally arrived 10 years after the seminal Night of the Living Dead and ushered in a new era of zombie films. It showed Romero once again ahead of the curve, mixing biting political satire with state-of-the-art-gore for a genre defining masterpiece that packs as much of a punch today as it did 40 years ago.

With a zombie epidemic escalating, a small band of survivors seek refuge in that shrine to capitalism, the shopping mall. But the undead, still possessed by an instinctive desire to consume, have had the same idea...What follows is a nail-biting thrill-ride and fight to survive. Oh, and watch out for those helicopter blades!




Mystery Road Series 2 & Series 1&2 Box Set DVD & digital release

Lauded as 'Australia's answer to True Detective' (junkee.com) for its first gripping series, we return down under for a second trip down Mystery Road.

When a headless corpse is found floating by the shore in a remote outback town, hard-boiled Indigenous detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pedersen - Jack Irish) is brought in to investigate, joined by colleague Fran (Jada Alberts - Cleverman). He must balance law and lore as they contend with protests over the excavation of an Indigenous site...and that's before another body shows up. Could the murders be linked? And can Jay gain the trust of his community without the police losing faith in him?

The Bridge's original Nordic noir star Sofia Helin plays archaeological professor Claire Sims, whose input will be vital if Jay is to solve the case in this small coastal town, where the desert meets the ocean, and secrets from the past and present run dark and deep.

Tasma Walton (Home and Away) returns as Jay's ex-wife Mary, who is still contending with the fallout of the explosive first series and the effects of that case on their family. Jay must balance his domestic troubles while confronting a dangerous enemy in a world where deception is king...will he dig up the truth about Mystery Road?

Within the DGSE (Directorate General of External Security), the 'Office of Legends' operate the most valuable members of the French intelligence services: secret agents.
