Superspy George Smiley (Alec Guinness) has for some time been in 'retirement' - some say due to his mishandling of the Czech scandal. However, the retiring masterspy finds himself summoned back to the 'Circus' (British secret service) when it transpires that an enemy infiltrator is at work in the department.
A noble 12th-century knight returns home to England after fighting in the Crusades alongside Richard the Lionheart, only to find the country under the domination of the king's tyrannical brother. Banished from England for wanting to marry against his father's wishes, Ivanhoe joins Richard the Lionheart on a crusade in the Holy Land. On his return, his passionate desire is to be reunited with the beautiful but forbidden lady Rowena, but he soon finds himself playing a more dangerous game as he is drawn into a bitter power struggle between the noble King Richard and his evil and scheming brother John. Ivanhoe is set in a highly romanticized medieval world of tournaments and sieges, chivalry and adventure where dispossessed Saxons are pitted against their Norman overlords. The BBC's classic adaptation was a Sunday evening favourite. Directed by David Maloney, the 10-part series starred Eric Flynn as Ivanhoe and Anthony Bate as his main rival, the corrupt Knight Templar Brian de Bois-Guilbert.
Collected episodes of two late '60s gang drama series. 'Spindoe' was a spinoff from an earlier Granada drama 'The Fellows'. At the end of that series, Alec Spindoe (Ray McAnally) had been sent to prison but here he is on the outside yet again. After his time inside, he attempts to pick up where he left off but a bigshot crime Czar and a private dick are dogging his every move. Features six one-hour episodes. 'Big Breadwinner Hog' followed the rise of a career hoodlum, Hog (Peter Egan), against a backdrop of the London gangland. Unapologetic and brutal in its depiction of violence, the series was so ahead of its time that it was eventually pulled from screens before the end of its run - the only programme to have achieved that honour at the time!
All six stand alone episodes of the supernatural series from acclaimed 'Quatermass' writer Nigel Kneale. In 'Special Offer', Noreen (Pauline Quirk) is a clumsy shopgirl who becomes convinced that there is something sinister living behind the walls of the shop where she works. When she is fired after the manager believes she is responsible for all the damages that have been taking place, Noreen returns to the shop looking for revenge...only to discover the real source of the disturbances. In 'During Barty's Party', a couple are alone in an isolated cottage with only a radio for company, until a legion of intelligent rats start to invade their home. In 'Buddyboy', Hubbard (Wolfe Morris) wants to sell his dolphinarium after his prize dolphin dies, and thinks he has found a buyer in Dave (Martin Shaw). But what is the real reason behind Hubbard's eagerness to sell? In 'Baby', a young couple expecting their first child move into a converted farmhouse, where they discover an urn hidden in a wall cavity that contains the body of a strange mutant creature. Before long, they become convinced something is lurking in the woods outside, and the wife is woken by the sound of a baby crying. In 'What Big Eyes', a man experiments with a theory that he believes explains an evolutionary link between man and wolf. Finally, in 'The Dummy', a horror film actor famous for playing a monstrous character known as 'The Dummy' is about to play the role for the seventh time. But this time, something seems different about him, and who exactly is killing off members of the crew?
BBC adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel. When Captain Billy Bones (Jack Watson) arrives at Daniel Hawkins (Terry Scully)'s inn, the ailing Hawkins is glad to receive some money from the old sailor. It transpires that Bones has in his possession the map to some hidden treasure in the Bahamas, which he entrusts to Daniel's young son, Jim (Ashley Knight). When Bones' former shipmates, led by Long John Silver (Alfred Burke), arrive to claim the map, Jim escapes. With the help of a local doctor and magistrate, he sets sail for the tropics to discover Treasure Island.
