Glad to see that "When Things Were Rotten" is now on dvd. I loved that show as a kid.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

BFI Flipside presents

DEEP END (DVD + Blu-ray)
A Film by Jerzy Skolimowski

THE FLIPSIDE: rescuing weird and wonderful British films from obscurity and presenting them in new high-quality editions.

Newly employed at a run-down London swimming baths, Mike (John Moulder-Brown) obsesses after his sassy and self-assured co-worker (Jane Asher) whilst collecting tips for the 'special services' he is expected to perform for clients (including the superb Diana Dors).

Darkly comic and utterly compelling, this portrait of Britain in an era of uncertainty makes its long overdue return to the screen in a new digital restoration with extensive bonus features.

Gotta love the BFI, for releasing these forgotten films. There is a wealth of material waiting to be discovered. James Mason fans, take note, out on Feb 25:

PRE-ORDER Stranger in the House (Flipside 037) (Dual Format Edition)

In the latest addition the BFI Flipside collection, James Mason stars in this intergenerational drama as a cynical barrister who must confront the alien world of the Swinging Sixties to defend his daughter’s boyfriend


Little seen since its original release, stylishly shot in Winchester and Southampton by Academy Award-winner Kenneth Higgins (Georgy Girl) and co-starring Ian Ogilvy (Witchfinder General), this striking psychological thriller based on Maigret creator Georges Simenon’s celebrated novel is ripe for rediscovery.

Once an eminent barrister, John Sawyer (James Mason) has become a cynical, reclusive drunk, long deserted by his wife, baffled by the burgeoning youth culture and held in contempt by his daughter, Angela (Geraldine Chaplin). But when her boyfriend is wrongfully accused of murder, Sawyer must confront his demons and a changing world in order to defend him.

The 37th release in the BFI Flipside strand, Stranger in the House is presented on Blu-ray and DVD in a Dual Format Edition. A stack of archival extras include photographer David Bailey’s 1966 film G.G. Passion, a psychedelic 1968 advert for coffee, an interview with James Mason, a new commentary and an illustrated booklet.

Previously unavailable on DVD or Blu-ray in the UK.
