Happy happy demon.

I’m subtitling them now: they’re huge fun. And Power of the Press, while it gets a bit soapboxy at times, is genuinely fascinating for the way that it anticipates many of the Leveson-related debates about journalistic ethics by seven decades - which just goes to show how little has changed. It even uses a decidedly current phrase at one point.

(Incidentally, that’s a very low-bitrate MP4 created for subtitling purposes - the actual HD master looks far better.)

I guess there was some kind of error with The Border's booklet, I ordered it recently direct from Powerhouse, and it came externally of the sealed case, in the same package.

I've bought six Indicator titles in the last week.

thanks for this - just one question. is there any new footage for Stranglers as there was rumoured to be a more complete cut with the BFI than was available for previous releases?

No promises at this stage (I'm acutely aware that we jumped the gun on Never Take Sweets from a Stranger by prematurely announcing the reinstatement of a censored word that we ultimately couldn't restore), but let's just say for now that we're all fully aware of this film's release and version history.

Yes I was hoping this version would be used.Shame about the obvious cuts to TERROR OF THE TONGS (notably when Helena Sale is attacked and has her fingers severed) but I assume this footage is all lost.
