Network’s The British Film label of Blu-Rays and DVDs has released over 400 films from the silent era through to the 1980s, including classics such as The Ipcress File, Animal Farm, Black Narcissus and The Man Who Haunted Himself. The label re-presents the UK’s cinematic heritage as brand-new transfers from the original film elements and lovingly introducing classy packaging that reflects the original, iconic poster artwork of these vintage films.
Network have just announced the second phase of their release schedule as a new deal with Studiocanal enables them to produce even more movies. Phase II sees the expansion into VOD as well as Blu-Ray and DVDs.
January 2019 kicks off the new chapter with some classic British comedies – with brand-new releases of the film versions of Man About the House and Till Death Us Do Part. Hot on their heels is the classic crime-fighting duo of Jack Regan and George Carter in Sweeney! and Sweeney 2 – followed later by the comedy The Smallest Show On Earth starring Peter Sellars, comedy writing legends Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais’ spin-off feature The Likely Lads and Anna Neagle’s Queen Victoria biopics Victoria The Great and Sixty Glorious Years. All these new releases will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital VOD, all sourced from High Definition transfers taken from the original film elements.
