The Front Line Blu-ray

A box-office smash in South Korea, “The Front Line” charts the final decisive battles of The Korean War (1950-53). As the shattered armies of North and South Korea face a brutal deadlock on the rugged Aerok Hill, suspicions of treachery prompt an investigation into the men of the South Korean Alligator Company. A veteran intelligence officer travels to the inhospitable front line and soon uncovers details of mysterious and tragic events, with a former comrade at their centre.

In the ensuing struggle, the two soldiers become locked in a deadly battle of wills. Both men will be forced to make some tough decisions and ultimately fight side-by-side in the name of freedom. Both sides in the bitterly-fought war pray for an armistice but until that fateful day, Aerok Hill provides a symbolic focus for dominance in the conflict, and neither is about to back down. Thanks to Cine Asia and Cult TV, you had the chance to win one of three copies of the Blu-ray release that we had up for grabs in a prize competition.

Wanted for the Hopathon

Make a date in your diary – Saturday 3 March 2012. This is when the first ever “Ripping Yarns Hopathon” will take place, including two Guinness World Record attempts, with Michael Palin and Terry Jones in attendance, and presenting the winners with their charity donations and plenty of hopping! There are separate £500 prizes for the fastest 400-metre hop on one leg and 400 metre relay hop. The ‘Hop Relay’ team must decide on their nominated charity as a group.

The Ripping Yarns Hopathon is inspired by the 30-Mile Hop at Graybridge School (motto: “Only in true misery can you find true contentment”) which featured in the first ever episode of the cult comedy series, namely “Tomkinson's School Days”. The record attempts that are in the sights of the competitors are those for the largest group and fastest 400 Metre relay hops. This is all taking place to mark the latest DVD release of Ripping Yarns: The Complete Series. This is a free event and will take place at the Grade 1-listed Hampstead Heath Athletics Track.

Our first series of voyages BEHIND THE SOFA has come to an end. Exclusive to Edge Media Television, on Sky channel 200, this is a new review comedy panel show which was broadcast every Sunday for six weeks from 15 January 2012 at 8.00pm. Pitching celebrity reviewers against each other, the latest DVD and Blu-ray blockbusters did battle with classic archive titles for the right to be hailed as the ‘Release of the Week’.

Repeated Wednesdays at 7.00pm, and Saturdays at 9.00pm, the final episode of series one saw some of the 'big guns' found 'Behind The Sofa' battling to see which one will prevail as "Release of the Week". We had: “Tales from Europe - The Singing Ringing Tree”, the stuff of childhood nightmares comes under the spotlight; “Repo Man” - Alex Cox classic cult movie gets the Blu-ray treatment; The Twilight Zone - The final season making it to Blu-ray, and there's many a treat in this magnum epic of a title; and “Cowboys and Aliens” - a Hollywood blockbuster mixing its genres but with a cast list in the stratosphere.

For those of you who like your trivia, here's some about "Behind The Sofa: All six editions were recorded in one day, 19 December 2011, and filmed "as live" (i.e., no edits); the episodes were filmed out of order, so as to space out the later recordings, where everyone is more familiar with what's required. The order filmed (compared to broadcast order) was 2 - 5 - 1 - 4 - 3 - 6. This allowed for three changes of clobber for each of the quartet onscreen, but still made it look like they'd changed for the start of each show, due to the order filmed; and the clips were dropped in during post production, having been viewed prior to each segment being recorded, With the format of the show and the cast having demonstrated their credentials, the work begins to find a sponsor to support the production of series two.

Reality on Demand debuts

A mix of experience and unknowns will help bring to life a new, independent TV series that follows four strangers testing an advanced virtual reality game world. Composed of their favourite television shows and movies, they become trapped in a world where cancellation means death. So begins the adventure in Reality on Demand.

The series was filmed in and around Evansville, Indiana, USA during the summer and early autumn of 2011. Since then, collaborators Julie Hernandez Seaton and Jarrod Moschner have been working in post-production on the series so that all is ready to roll for the show’s debut on 18 January 2012. “Reality on Demand is packed with action, laughs, visual effects, and a few zombies. Everyone knows you can't have a web series without zombies” said series creator and director Marx Hernandez Pyle. “Most importantly, the show has great characters. It's a nice blend of comedy and drama. Once you're done watching season one, you'll want to follow the adventures of these characters and learn more about this crazy virtual world, which is a blend of television and film."
