Yes, this is not a film title, but as Simply Media don't seem to release many TV titles, thought it would be worth including in this thread. Simply Media are releasing a DVD set in November of the first series of Softly Softly: Task Force (16 episodes in total). The UK release date is Monday 18th November (source: Amazon UK, and title and it's release date is subject to change).

This is rather confusing, regarding Odeon Entertainment's release of A Study in Terror, the John Neville film. There's an ad in the new issue of Sight & Sound magazine, featuring four forthcoming Odeon titles - Tommy, The Asphyx, Lady for a Day and A Study in Terror. It mentions that A Study in Terror is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on 11th November, yet Amazon UK only lists a DVD release.

EDIT: The Blu-ray of A Study in Terror is listed on Odeon Entertainment's new look website.

Also being released on Blu-ray by Odeon Entertainment in November is the Roger Moore film Gold.

odeon's website has a listing where one can order a blu-ray of A Study In Terror right under the dvd listing, but I can't find the bd listed anywhere else on the internet. somebody needs to contact Odeon and ask them what is going on.

Have only ordered film DVDs/Blu-rays from Moviemail, and they have usually sent them in bubble backed envelopes.

On Moviemail's main website page, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, under the 'Help' heading is a category called 'Postage Rates'. There's something on the 'Help Centre - Postage Rates' page about Western Europe and International postage. But it's probably best to email Moviemail just to make sure about the Western Europe and international postage rates.

Am hoping Amazon UK will eventually add Odeon's Blu-ray of A Study in Terror to their website. It's rather odd, when Odeon's Blu-ray of the Roger Moore film Gold is up on Amazon UK and not A Study in Terror, and Gold was released on the same day (last Monday).

Biggles (1986) trailer

Street Date: February 24th.

Amazon pre-order:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Biggles-Adve...ywords=biggles


Quote:
Captain W.E. John’s world-famous fighter ace James ‘Biggles’ Bigglesworth hits the big screen at last, in all-out, all-action, all-explosive adventure! Jim Ferguson (Alex Hyde-White) is just the head of a Manhattan catering company – until the night he is flung back through time to the darkest days of the First World War. Here he meets the legendary British fighter ace Biggles (Neil Dickson) and is plunged into the greatest adventure of his life! Biggles is trying to hunt down a new German secret weapon – one that could win the war for the Hun! To destroy it, Jim and Biggles must hurtle back and forth through time, piecing together the clues with the aid of Biggle’s trusty friends Algy, Bertie and Ginger and a mysterious old man who lives inside Tower Bridge (Peter Cushing). As time begins to run out, Biggles must decide if he can trust the word of the girl who once broke his heart – a beautiful double agent named Marie (Francesca Gonshaw) – and finally defeat his arch enemy, the brutal Eric von Stalhein (Marcus Gilbert).Tally Ho!

At the very least you've reminded me that I have that movie and that I haven't seen it for far too long.

NEWS
https://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=13071

Quote:
Independent British distributors NetworkDVD have confirmed that they are planning to add three classic titles to their Blu-ray catalog: Lindsay Anderson's This Sporting Life (1963), Basil Dearden's Victim (1961), and Paul Henreid's Ballad in Blue (1964). The three titles are expected to arrive on the UK market in May.

This Sporting Life

Richard Harris gives a career-best performance as the brutally competitive miner, strongly supported by Rachel Roberts as his bitter landlady, both of whom received Oscar nominations, with Roberts winning the BAFTA for Best British Actress. David Storey's compelling script was also BAFTA nominated, while director Lindsay Anderson was nominated for the Golden Palm for his unflinching look at working-class life set in the bleak landscape of Northern England. This Sporting Life is featured here in a High Definition transfer made from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

Miner Frank Machin lodges with a widow, Mrs. Hammond. His competitive nature and powerful physique cause him to join the local rugby team and, as his career progresses, so too his brutal nature distances him from those around him. Success – and perhaps a new sense of insecurity – seems to make Frank harsher and cruder...

STREET DATE: MAY 5TH.

Special Features:

Original theatrical trailer
Four image galleries, including extensive promotional and behind-the-scenes shots
Promotional material PDFs
Commemorative Booklet PDF by Film Historian David Rolinson

Victim

Banned on its original theatrical release in the United States and highly controversial in Britain, this BAFTA-nominated story of deception, blackmail and revenge stars Dirk Bogarde in a brave, career-best performance as a prosperous young barrister with a dark secret. With powerful direction from Basil Dearden and strong supporting performances from both Sylvia Syms and Dennis Price, Victim is featured here in a High Definition transfer made from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

The police are after Jack Barrett, who has stolen several thousand pounds and is now on the run. He tries desperately to get in touch with Melville Farr, a prosperous young barrister with a beautiful wife but, cornered and arrested by the police he commits suicide in his prison cell rather than answer their questions.

STREET DATE: MAY 19TH.

Special Features:

Dirk Bogarde in Conversation - an extensive interview with Bogarde where he talks frankly about his career
Original theatrical trailer
Four image galleries, including extensive promotional and behind-the-scenes shots
Promotional material PDFs

Ballad in Blue

Making his only major film appearance, legendary soul singer, musician and composer Ray Charles helps transform the lives of a blind boy and his widowed mother in this poignant, uplifting film drama set in mid-1960s London. Presented in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio, Ballad in Blue sees Charles – who had lost his sight completely by the age of eight – performing some of his best-loved songs, including I Got a Woman, Hit the Road, Jack and Busted.

During a performance for blind children, global star Ray Charles befriends David, a young boy who has recently lost his sight, and tries to help him come to terms with his condition. Then, during a world tour, Charles finds himself in Paris, where a surgeon is pioneering a radical procedure that could restore David's sight; he sets out not only to convince David's over-protective mother to allow her son to undergo the surgery, but also to reconcile her with her boyfriend, a struggling composer who seeks solace in alcohol.

STREET DATE: MAY 12TH.
