I love the Flipside series and have them all, but I thought a couple of the recent releases were a bit underwhelming.
However, this is a nailed - on day one purchase :nod:

Hope there's a volume 2. There are a lot of British horror shorts from the seventies and eighties mentioned in Jonathan Rigby's English Gothic that I wouldn't mind seeing just for their curiosity value. Take an Easy Ride especially sounds like a totally inept faux documentary/exploitation/sleaze relic of the seventies that is right in the wheelhouse of the Flipside label.

Have you not seen Take an Easy Ride, Rob?

Surprised as it's out on dvd from Odeon / Screenbound. It also has a pilot show on it called Go Girl starring lovely Luan Peters.

50 years on from its first transmission, the BBC’s Play for Today anthology series remains one of British television’s most influential and celebrated achievements. Between 1970 and 1984, plays which combined some of the era’s finest writing, acting and directing talents were broadcast direct to living rooms, regularly challenging viewers and pushing the boundaries of TV drama.

The set includes five plays which have been restored from the original negatives held in the BBC archive.

The Plays:

The Lie (Written by Ingmar Bergman | Dir. Alan Bridges, 1970)
Shakespeare or Bust (Written by Peter Terson | Dir. Brian Parker, 1973)
Back of Beyond (Written by Julia Jones | Dir. Desmond Davis, 1974)
Passage to England (Written by Leon Griffiths | Dir. John Mackenzie, 1975)
Our Flesh and Blood (Written by Mike Stott | Dir. Pedr James, 1977)
A Photograph (Written by John Bowen | Dir. John Glenister, 1977)
Your Man from Six Counties (Written by Colin Welland | Dir. Barry Davis, 1976)
