Alan Clarke's Play for Today about Russian dissidents, written by Jehane Markham. The film is a nice counterpoint to Clarke's Bukovsky, where we get to see a documentary about a Soviet writer who managed to escape to Britain in the '70s. This is a fictional account of a similar story.

Nina, unlike Bukovsky, has a little more range and is a little more enthralling. This is mainly due to the wonderful performance by Eleanor Bron, which brings the complexities of the story to the screen. The film is deliberately slow and quietly understated, allowing Clarke to ratchet unseen tension with his long takes, and calculated time-jumps.

It may never quite get to the heart of Soviet system, or of the defected life, but it is a very good character study of two people who have made a very difficult choice.

The first episode, Meet the People, is a comedy-drama dealing with preparations for an official visit to the colliery by Prince Charles. The humour revolves around the expensive and ludicrous preparations required for an official visit from a member of the Royal Family. Some workers recognise this and cannot take it seriously. Management recognises it but has to 'play the game'. Special toilets must be constructed "just in case" and destroyed after the visit. A worker is instructed to paint a brick holding up a window. On the eve of the visit, the slogan "Scargill rules OK" is painted on a wall. The manager comments "When I find out who did that I'll string him up by his knackers". In another scene, an argument takes place in a pub between colliers opposed to the expenditure on the visit and who think the colliery was chosen because its union officials were relatively conservative and other colliers who are looking forward to the visit.

The second episode, Back to Reality, takes place a month later and deals with an underground explosion that kills several miners and follows the attempts to rescue others that remain trapped.

Complete Series 1 to 8 of 2point4 Children starring Belinda Lang and Gary Olsen.

On the Surface, the Porters are a normal family ? indeed, even the series? title 2 Point 4 Children, the fabled average family size, alludes to their normality (as well as the fact that the husband/father is still a bit of a child himself). Yet, though the individual members? central?heating engineer Ben; his wife, catering worker Bill; and their teenage children David and Jenny ? are unexceptional, the situations in which the family find themselves are anything but. Bad luck, strange occurrences and poor judgement all conspire to turn the porters? world topsy ?turvey.

Sitcom?wise, the shape of the series itself is also different from the norm, because, from the earliest episodes, it has centred not on the husband, Ben, but on his wife Bill. Even with the focus on Bill, the series still avoids the traditional woman-as-wife-and-mother theme of other series, instead portraying her as a fully-rounded person in her own right, unconfined by her family.

2 point 4 children proved to be a success. It was first screened in 1991 and by the third series in 1993 it was attracting ratings of more than 13 million, the sort of figure also being enjoyed by One Foot in the Grave. The series ends in 1999 with the millennium special, tragically due to the premature death of Gary Olsen, aged only 42, from Cancer on 13th September 2000 ensured this would be the last.

Spender is a British television police procedural drama, created by Ian La Frenais and Jimmy Nail, that first broadcast on 8 January 1991 on BBC1.[1] The series, which also starred Nail as the titular character, ran for three series between 1991 and 1993, finishing with a feature-length special, The French Collection, broadcast on 29 December 1993. A total of twenty-one episodes were produced. The first and second series were produced by Martin McKeand, while the third and final series was produced by Paul Raphael and Peter McAleese.

The series, set in Newcastle upon Tyne, focuses on the life and exploits of Detective Sergeant Freddie Spender, who was often chosen to carry out more daring police cases. With his criminal sidekick Stick (Sammy Johnson), Spender was regarded as one of the more remarkable TV detectives of the 1990s. The series featured an extensive back story for the main characters, with a number of episodes dealing with Spender's domestic life, his family and circumstances. Some of the storylines were however seen as somewhat dark; one episode featured the death of Spender's wife at the hands of a ruthless gangster, another on the kidnap of one of his daughters.[2]

Guest stars in the series included Amanda Redman, Rodney Bewes, Frances Tomelty, Julie Peasgood, Jan Graveson, Geoffrey Hughes, Bobby Pattinson, Tom Bell and Ian McElhinney. The series was broadcast on Tuesday evenings in the peak time slot that followed the BBC's flagship Nine O'Clock News. No further series were produced following the feature-length special, despite the popularity of the show, and it being a smash hit for the BBC in terms of ratings with the show regularly pulling in 14 million viewers, and each episode costing upwards of £350,000 to produce. In 1992, a novelisation of the series, written by Nail, was published.

 The series has never been commercially released on DVD.  We have transfered from VHS to DVD  with artwork
