Spike Milligan - Q Volume 2 out nowWhat are we going to do now? When it came to 1979, Spike Milligan moved on to giving the BBC a series called Q8, and the play on the fact it sounded like Kuwait. Indeed, the following year, the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation was formed, and decided to adopt the moniker ‘Q8’ for its petrol stations! This series of six episodes, along with 1980’s Q9 half-dozen, are released on an unsuspecting public for the first time by Simply Media. The Kenny Everett Video Show had made its debut in 1978, and 1979 saw the debut of Not the Nine O’ Clock News, so this was very much a climate of testing the limits of TV comedy, which veteran Spike had done for his entire career.

As recent releases of Spike’s radio trailblazer The Goon Show state on sleeve notes: “Some of the humour reflects the era in which the episodes were broadcast.” Today we have the likes of Family Guy and American Dad really testing the boundaries of good taste, with sharp intakes of breath as you wonder how on Earth they manage to get away with some of the barbs laced throughout those shows. As with the release last year of Q5 – Q7 on DVD, this follow-up pair of Milligan series takes aim at everyone - no religion, race or public figure is safe – be it royalty, politicians, or celebrities. Words now off limits are used regularly, but it’s never with malice or aggression. Cultural Studies students will no doubt find plenty of material to pontificate over in this run of episodes.

Connections with James Burke out now on UK DVDHe was immortalised by The Human League in their 1980 song “The Black Hit of Space”, where Phil Oakey implored we “get James Burke on the case”. At that point in time, the impact of the first series of Connections had been seismic. First broadcast in 1978, the ten part series had cemented Burke’s place not only in our British culture, but he was then exposed to a worldwide audience. He had become a national icon through working on Tomorrow’s World from when it began in 1965 through to 1971, as well as being a cornerstone of the BBC’s coverage of the Apollo space missions, and fronting The Burke Special (1972-1976).

Why was Connections such a ‘big thing’ at the time? Much like Burke’s own philosophy regarding inventions and progress, it joined together elements of history, science and technology to show how seemingly disconnected disciplines fed off each other to create major breakthroughs. This created a positive feedback loop, and explains the ever-faster rates of change that we see in our society today. The biggest surprise in all this is why it has taken so long to finally get a UK release for the series in any shape or form. Thanks to Simply Media, it is time to revisit not just this but all the incredible, and in places prophetic, work of James Burke.

Probatiion Officer - Volume 1 of existing episodes out on DVD nowEvery now and then, a DVD release comes along of a TV series that has vanished into the memory hole. Remembered by few, the perceived wisdom is that if it was worth taking notice of, then the trivia books would pay close attention to it. In the case of Probation Officer, we have a series which has slipped through the net. An ATV production starring John Paul (Doomwatch) and Honor Blackman (The Avengers), even from that small snippet interest is immediately on high alert.  This initial batch of surviving episodes, (unfortunately the archive holdings are patchy at best) come from 1959 and 1960. Anyone who thought in that era it was all very “Cholmondley-Warner” when dealing with fiction rooted in reality will be in for a shock.

Whether it’s drugs on the streets, gangs out of control, or even a very early inter-racial screen kiss (beating Star Trek’s “Plato’s Stepchildren” by a good nine years), even today there will be many surprises as to what topics are brought into sharp focus. Admittedly, the attitudes of many of the characters are set in another era, where racism and sexism were par for the course, but this adds a blunt reminder of how much things have changed over the nearly six decades which have passed since these episodes were put into production. For any students of sociology or cultural studies, there are a stream of dissertations which could be written from this sample of a dozen episodes.

It is with regret that we announce that after just two episodes of its new series, CULT TV ON YOUR RADIO has had to go on hiatus, as the producers seek a new outlet to broadcast the programme from. Hosts alex:g and Justin Allum had brought the show back via Tulip – The Station You Can Really Call Your Own – for the new series, broadcasting fortnightly on Tuesdays from 7.00pm to 9.00pm GMT. It was just about to move to a weekly slot of Thursdays 7-9pm when disaster struck.

You were able, if based in the Spalding and South Holland area of the UK to hear the broadcasts on 107.5 FM, or alternatively from anywhere in the world via the TUNE IN website and App. Unfortunately, the previous management of the station decided to take the entire station off-air, including our programme which was all about extraordinary fictional television and movies being previewed and reviewed.

All is not lost, as the two shows which were recorded are preserved for posterity. You can find the podcast of the first edition, which includes the announcement of the winners of the CULT TV AWARDS 2016, on MIXCLOUD BY CLICKING HERE. The second show contained information on the new series of 24, the revival of Twin Peaks, and also when some of your favourite shows will be starting their runs again in the UK. You can listen to it on MIXCLOUD BY CLICKING HERE.

The Flower of Gloster comes to DVDThe mission: Guide a 72-foot narrow-boat through 220 miles of canals from Wales to London in 10 days. The crew: Three cheeky kids from the Doherty family, after daddy Doherty is injured. What (else) could possibly go wrong?! This cheerful 13-part tale from 1967 has the distinction of being the first Granada Television series to be made in colour, even though it was initially broadcast in black and white.

The Doherty family are up against a rival boat manned by the Evans clan. The stakes are high as the first party to deliver their boat get the deal, and the Evans are not playing fair. Sabotage is not the only problem facing Dick, Liz and Mike Doherty, however, as they must also contend with mechanical faults, a haunted wood, Mike’s uncanny disappearing act and a girl they crash into along the way. Think ‘Swallows and Amazons’ only on a canal.

Metropolis - out now as a Limited Edition DVD and Blu-ray and soon as a Standard release“Metropolis” is an anime film indirectly and loosely based on the 1927 Fritz Lang classic movie of the same name, by way of a 1949 manga reimagining. Written by “Akira” legend Katsuhiro Otomo and directed by Rintaro (“Galaxy Express 999”), the film portrays a humble boy’s relationship with a state of the art robotic girl as they make their way through the weird, wonderful and sometimes frightening city of Metropolis.

Metropolis is built on three levels, with janitor robots and the poorest of the poor at the bottom, and the rich elites living above ground in a towering skyscraper. A terrorist/vigilante organisation called the Marduk resent the encroachment of robots in every quarter of life and plan to fight back aggressively, whilst a powerful industrialist called Duke Red is constructing a weapon of mass destruction to enforce his rule over everyone.

Fright Night - out bow on dual format Blu-ray and DVD“Fright Night” is a horror-comedy that riffs on Hitchcock’s paranoia classic, “Rear Window”. High school student Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale – "The Reaping") witnesses the arrival of his new neighbour… in a coffin! Then some prostitutes are murdered and Brewster is convinced that his strange neighbour (Chris Sarandon – “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “The Princess Bride”) is responsible, but nobody will believe him.

To make matters worse, Jerry - the fanged freak - turns up on his doorstep, endangering both Brewster, his family and friends. Desperate to protect them, he approaches one of his idols, a washed-up TV horror star called Peter Vincent (the iconic Roddy McDowall – of the original “Planet of the Apes” and “The Poseidon Adventure”) who he prays will be able to transfer his on-screen skills into the real world.

Miami Vice - The Complete Collection - out now on UK Blu-rayMiami Vice is a 1980s cop show featuring one of the most charismatic detective duos ever – James ‘Sonny’ Crocket and Ricardo Tubbs. Crockett (Don Johnson – “Django Unchained”, Nash Bridges) is an eagle-eyed Southerner with immaculately coiffured hair, linen suits and a sleek Ferrari. Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas – “Sparkle”, Lance Vance in “GTA: Vice City”) is a streetwise, medallion-wearing New Yorker driven to Miami by vengeance.

Created by Anthony Yerkovich (a writer on Hill Street Blues) and executively produced by Michael Mann (“Heat”, “Manhunter”), the show ran for five seasons and saw early guest performances from the likes of Bruce Willis, Michael Madsen, Viggo Mortensen, Laurence Fishburne and Wesley Snipes. Iconic for both cool and alarming 80s fashionwear, brilliant tunes and flashy vehicles, the show now gets a new lease of life in remastered high-def.

All Star Comedy Carnival 1972 and 1973 make it to a DVD releaseAll Star Comedy Carnival was an annual television event which ran for five years from 1969. It was ITV's annual ‘Christmas bonus’, screened at the height of the festive season, usually on Christmas Day, presenting viewers with brand-new sketches from the network’s most popular sitcoms of that particular year. A highlight of the festive viewing period, only two editions still exist in their entirety - those for 1972 and 1973.

This new DVD from Network Releasing presents both these complete shows, comprising specially written sketches for 13 classic series, and running without adverts for about an hour and a half each – and rest assured you get the advert break cards and jingles included!  Most of these components were extended sketches based in the comedy and variety formats they showcased, a lot of them operating within the confines of a single studio-based set.

Magnum PI - The Complete Collection now available on UK Blu-rayTom Selleck will forever be known as Magnum PI, a Vietnam veteran who leaves the Navy to take up position as a private eye and security adviser to famous author Robin Masters, never seen but heard on occasion and voiced in the main by the iconic Orson Welles. Set in the picture postcard region of Oahu, Hawaii, with adventures first broadcast between 1980 and 1988, he lives the high life in Master’s beachfront mansion, driving his Ferrari, and taking private detective cases. AND YOU COULD HAVE WON A COPY OF THE COMPLETE COLLECTION OF THE SERIES ON BLU-RAY IN OUR PRIZE COMPETITION, fully restored and in high definition!

In charge of the Robin Masters estate is Jonathan Quayle Higgins III (John Hillerman), a British ex-Army Sergeant Major, with two Doberman Pinschers, Zeus and Apollo, known as ‘the lads’ helping keep order. There’s a buddy-feel to it all, with two fellow veterans also being ever-presents in the series - Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin (Roger E Mosley), who runs the ‘Island Hoppers’ helicopter charter service, and Orville Wilbur Richard ‘Rick’ Wright (Larry Manetti – the only one of the four leads without a moustache), who owns ‘Rick’s Place’, a local bar, the name inspired by movie “Casablanca”.

The Incredible Hilk - The Complete Collection out now on UK Blu-rayThe Incredible Hulk - The Complete Collection consists of all 82 original episodes from the five seasons of the show (two of them feature-length) and a wave of bonus material which puts the adventures into context. Indeed, creator Kenneth Johnson’s audio commentaries are some of the best single-person narratives that you will ever hear. He describes how he took the comic book out of the comic character, bringing forth a series which appealed as much to women as men. The episode prints are fully restored and high definition in this 16-disc Blu-ray set.

After being exposed to gamma radiation, mild-mannered research scientist David Banner (Bill Bixby) finds extreme anger or stress transforms him into the terrifying and enraged Hulk (Lou Ferrigno). This format draws inspiration from a trio of works from classic literature. Original creator Stan Lee notes the transformed Hulk was inspired by Frankenstein’s monster, while the alter ego of Dr Banner came from Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Kenneth Johnson added the element of news hack Jack McGee (Jack Colvin) pursuing the creature. It chimed with iconic 1960s series The Fugitive with its stories of a man forever on the run.

Maid Marian and her Merry Men - Complete Series 1-4 out as a Limited Edition DVD setRe-released as a limited edition DVD box-set (just 3,000 copies), Maid Marian and Her Merry Men is a brilliantly funny, BAFTA-winning re-imagining of the Robin Hood story from Tony Robinson, of Blackadder and Time Team fame. In this version, Maid Marian is the brains behind the band of outlaws who rob from the rich and giving to the poor; Robin by contrast is a dim-witted and rather cowardly tailor with terrible archery skills. AND YOU COULD HAVE WON A COPY OF THE LIMITED EDITION SEASON 1-4 BOX SET IN OUR PRIZE COMPETITION.

Marian is played with gleeful bravado by Kate Lonergan (The Hello Girls, The Bill), with Adam Morris (Genie in the House, Backup) as the bumbling Robin. Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf, Death in Paradise) is Barrington and he also lends his vocal talents on many of the songs that open the episodes. The final two members of the crew are Rabies (Howard Lew Lewis – Brush Strokes, Chelmsford 123) and Little Ron (Mike Edmonds – “Time Bandits”, Ewok Logray in “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi”).

Ironside - Season 3 on UK DVD - Season 4 also now availableIn August 2015, the first two seasons of Ironside were releases in the UK by Fabulous Films. You can read our review of that release by CLICKING HERE. Now, 15 months later, we get Seasons Three and Four to savour. Our wheelchair-bound former Chief of Police, Robert T Ironside (Raymond Burr) is back with more insightful detective work, and these seasons mark the final ones for one of the quartet of key players – the female lead Barbara Anderson as Eve Whitfield, finishing her 105 of the 199 total episodes, landing an Emmy for her role in 1968.

We get 26 episodes on each season box set this time out, season three having originally aired Stateside from September 1969 to April 1970, and season four from September 1970 to April 1971. Again there are plenty of guest stars to look out for, whose faces will be familiar to many a Cult TV appreciator. The victim of a failed assassination attempt, Ironside was left paralysed from the waist down. He became the head of his own special police unit, aided by a crack team of investigators on the streets of San Francisco, including Sergeant Ed Brown (Don Galloway), and ex-con-turned-assistant Mark Sanger (Don Mitchell).

Tim Vine - new Tim Timinee DVD now availableIf one-line puns machine-gunned at you are your thing, then time to make an appointment to watch as award-winning British comedian Tim Vine, in a new show where he emerges from a chimney to take the roof off (it says here…). If Dick van Dyke was a stand-up, and from this side of the Atlantic, well, it’s nothing like that at all!  “Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim to You” is the latest mix-and-mirth from a man who breaks up the unyielding procession of off-the-wall corner-turning rat-a-tat spiel with silly songs, and one prop after another with a slick and simple pay-off.

This was a sell-out show which took Tim around the country and beyond. Take a deep breath everyone, because there’s a lot to get through. Stand by for a large number of stupid jokes, (and platypuses on poles, plus an interloper). Packed with a range of extras, this is the full-on exposure of the concept, and a breathless experience – if you don’t like one particular joke, another will be along before you have chance to blink, let alone frown.

Spike Milligan - episode of Q series finally come to DVD completeThere’s a reason that Spike Milligan’s TV shows from the late 1960s onwards have faded away from memory. On one level it can be put down to a lack of repeats, but the truth is based on their effective ‘blacklisting’, all down to one social factor which has scared people into silence. Political correctness. Seeing the shows Q5, Q6 and Q7 finally getting a DVD release is symptomatic of the fightback going on across the world at the moment. People are sick to death of being told what views they cannot hold, what language they can and cannot use, and instead being expected to go along with social restrictions which make it nigh-on illegal to have targets for humour.

Milligan adopts equal opportunities on many such targets for his off-the-wall stream-of-consciousness humour. Every religion, race, and political allegiance is verbally machine-gunned. The stupidity of belief systems and cultural actions are exposed to the spotlights which reveal the nature of divide-and-rule that such codes of conduct allow to grow. But the Social Justice Warriors will just focus in on the use of terms which, in this day and age, have been abolished. In effect, in the 21st Century the Q series has suddenly become the tool of revolution. And so it is that this new release from Simply Media allows us to take a snapshot of how sensibilities have changed from those of 1969, 1975 and 1978 respectively.

The day has finally arrived, and those who have pre-ordered UFO, the first live-action television series from the creators of Thunderbirds, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, are beginning to find the first UK Blu-ray release of the entire run of episodes popping through their letterboxes. The popularity of the show has even caught out Network Distributing as the first print run has sold out, and more are being rushed through to production as we speak. Network’s attention to detail has certainly been a key reason for this – a landmark series in so many ways, the restoration work on UFO is absolutely awe-inspiring, and new for this UK release. Not a film scratch in sight, not a blemish to make you twitch. In these days of Netflix, you can guarantee those who have purchased will be seduced into ‘binge viewing’ like never before.

UFO arrives on UK Blu-ray - and demand is huge

The sensibilities of the series rightly receives a ‘12’ certificate from the BBFC. At the time of first broadcast back in 1970, the ITV network was bemused that the puppet makers had come up with such an adult series. Watching the show now definitely benefits from original production order (for the majority of the run), as we see the characters and situations progress and evolve. Some faces might not stay with us for long, but it makes the show more credible for doing so. What we have here is pure television gold, serious in aspect but bright and colourful in terms of the world view we witness. And all this with the option of listening with a brand new and house-quaking 5.1 surround sound audio track!

Knight Rider - The Complete Collection now available on Blu-rayTV supremo Glen A Larson followed up hits such as the original Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century with one of his most fondly-remembered smashes: Knight Rider. On the surface, this tale of a man and his car defending the innocent and vulnerable against evil tycoons and corrupt officials might sound a little corny, but not when your star is David Hasselhoff and this is certainly no ordinary car!

Hasselhoff (Baywatch, “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!”) plays Michael Knight, an ex-cop rescued from near-death and given a new identity under the auspices of a private foundation. His somewhat unorthodox partner is KITT (voiced by William Daniels), aka the Knight Industries Two Thousand, a souped-up Pontiac Firebird Trans Am sporting self-aware and very sarcastic AI, a nearly indestructible shell and a large array of gadgets to help get Michael out of almost any scrape.

Kes - out now on Blu-rayDavid Bradley (“Hummingbird”, “All Quiet on the Western Front”) stars as Billy Casper, a scruffy young teenager living in a broken, working-class home, and who struggles at school thanks to apathy for education and widespread bullying. Billy finds his calling, however, when he catches sight of some fledgling kestrels and decides to catch one and train it. Having studied falconry, the lad slowly and patiently builds a rapport with his wonderful bird of prey.

Directed by Ken Loach (“The Wind That Shakes the Barley”, “Sweet Sixteen”), the film is shot in a very realistic, natural style that often feels more like a fly-on-the-wall documentary than a work of fiction. The story is based on a novel by Barry Hines (“Threads”, “Looks and Smiles”), and the production won two acting BAFTAs for Bradley and Colin Welland, who plays a teacher sympathetic to Billy’s plight.

Twilight's Last Gleaming - out now in the UK as a dual format Blu-ray and DVD releaseBurt Lancaster and Richard Widmark star in this post-Vietnam political thriller from 1977, out now on home media for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format Blu-ray and DVD edition from Eureka Entertainment. Considered a peak in director Robert Aldrich’s catalogue of work, “Twilight’s Last Gleaming” is a race-against-time doomsday scenario which will have annoyed the establishment in seeing Vietnam as a huge mistake by the USA, and was conceived as such right from the start of hostilities. Powerful, challenging, and enlightening stuff indeed.

Lancaster is a former Air Force general, Lawrence Dell, who with a quartet of accomplices skips jail and seizes control of Silo Three, which contains a stockpile of nine ICBM nuclear missiles. While the others are in it for the money, Dell wants to force President David Stevens (Charles Durning) to tell the truth about the Vietnam War. As negotiations get ever-more complex and desperate, General MacKenzie (Widmark) tries to guide an elite fighting team into the bunker to disable Dell and his mercenary hoods.

National Treasure - out now on DVDRobbie Coltrane and Julie Walters star in this drama about a famous comedic actor falling from grace. Paul Finchley (Coltrane – Hagrid in the “Harry Potter” movies, Cracker) is one half of a long-standing and very successful double act. Life is good and everyone adores him, but then the police notify him of some historical sexual assault charges that have been made against him, and his apparently perfect world starts to implode.

Recently broadcast on Channel 4, the mini-series was crafted by two BAFTA-winners - writer Jack Thorne (various This is England series, The Fades), and director Marc Munden (“The Mark of Cain”, Utopia). The series also features Tim McInnery (Black Adder, “Notting Hill”) as Karl, the other half of the comedy duo, and Andrea Riseborough (“Made in Dagenham”) as the Finchley’s mentally unstable daughter.

Stigmata - out now on dual-format Blu-ray and DVDPatricia Arquette (“True Romance”, Medium) stars as Frankie Paige, a young and carefree hairdresser whose life is turned upside down by the spontaneous infliction of a series of horrific wounds. These injuries, the stigmata, echo those suffered by Jesus Christ during his crucifixion. Frankie cannot understand why she is suffering, but religious investigator Father Andrew Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne – “The Usual Suspects”, Vikings) may have the answers.

A swift resolution is critical because Frankie’s mental as well as physical condition worsens with each new attack, and she starts behaving like she is not herself. Part supernatural horror, part conspiracy thriller, the film also stars Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones, “Brazil”) as a powerful Catholic Cardinal and Nia Long (“Big Momma’s House”, The Divide) as Frankie’s devoted best friend. Rupert Wainright (“The Fog” remake) directs.

The Keeping Room - out now on DVD and VOD“The Keeping Room” is a challenging, Western-style tale about two sisters and their slave woman fighting for survival near the end of the American Civil War, 1865. Living on basic rations and with no medical supplies, the trio attract the unwelcome attention of a pair of brutish, cold-blooded Union scouts (Sam Worthington – “Avatar”, “Clash of the Titans” and Kyle Soller – Poldark, You, Me and the Apocalypse).

Brit Marling (Babylon, “Another Earth”) stars as Augusta, the older of the sisters, who must hastily adopt the skills of a mother to protect her sibling, Louise (Hailee Steinfeld – “True Grit”, “Ender’s Game”). The slave, Mad, is played by Muna Otaru (Whitechapel); she finds her relationship to the sisters evolves as trust and teamwork become essential. Outgunned and miles from the next settlement, they stand or fall together.

The A-Team - Out now complete on Blu-ray“In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... the A-Team.”

It was one of the biggest ‘cult’ shows of its time, playing out over five seasons, and now it’s come to the UK in restored high definition. Hannibal, BA, Face and Murdock were seen in 97 episodes which are all available in a 22-disc Blu-ray set! And you had the opportunity to win a set, just for nominating your favourites in this year's Cult TV Awards.
