Baghdad Central DVD

Chaos rules on the streets of occupied Baghdad, where soldiers and secrets run unchecked amidst the aftermath of war. Baghdad Central is a gripping new adaptation of the novel by Elliott Colla, created by BAFTA nominated writer Steven Butchard (The Last Kingdom). The six-part crime thriller airs this February on Channel 4, and comes to DVD and digital from Acorn Media International on 16 March 2020.

November 2003, Saddam Hussein has gone into hiding. The US-led invasion has left no one in charge and there is no effective rule of law. During the war, ex-policeman Muhsin al-Khafaji (Waleed Zuaiter - Altered Carbon) lost everything, and is battling to keep himself and his sick daughter Mrouj (July Namir - Homeland) safe. But when he discovers that his estranged older daughter Sawsan (Leem Lubani - Omar) is missing, his desperate search leads him to uncover the dangerous hidden life she had been leading...

Khafaji is recruited by British officer Frank Temple (Bertie Carvel - Doctor Foster) to help rebuild the local police force alongside the abrasive American Military Police Captain John Parodi (Corey Stoll - House of Cards), so he agrees to collaborate with the occupying forces, risking everything to find out what happened to his daughter. Khafaji turns to his daughter's enigmatic professor, Zubeida Rashid (Clara Khoury - Homeland)...but whose side is she on?

Joy is perfectly happy with her secluded and orderly life as a back-room news editor. That is until her quiet life is turned upside down as she is summoned to step into the position of the media corporation's sexy and adventurous lifestyle guru and Ireland's most beloved vlogger, Flora the Happy Hunter (Laura Whitmore - Love Island presenter). Joy is catapulted headlong into the unknown and unwelcome world of social media stardom.




The Brokenwood Mysteries Series 6 DVD & 1-6 Box set

Brokenwood: New Zealand: Population 5000 and declining - slowly - one by one, or two by two, depending on the murder rate that week. Series Six of hit New Zealand crime drama The Brokenwood Mysteries recently aired on UKTV's Drama Channel, and arrives on DVD 17 February 2020, alongside the Series 1 to 6 Box Set, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

Four-times-divorced, country-music-loving, big city cop Detective Inspector Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea - Go Girls) has settled into the rural town of Brokenwood. He was first brought in to solve the case of a dead farmer suspected of foul play, and never left....but there's no rest for the wicked and the crimes keep on coming.

A murder at a Victorian dress-up Steampunk event, a renowned crime author falling victim to a killing right out of his books, an animal activist found dead on the first day of duck hunting season, and run-ins with some familiar faces as they are called in to investigate a suspicious suicide at Brokenwood Women's Prison - can Mike and the team get to the bottom of these gruesome goings-on?
