Collected edition of seven BBC adaptations of the classic detective stories featuring the great Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr Watson. Peter Cushing stars as Holmes in the first five adaptations, with Nigel Stock as Dr Watson, broadcast by the BBC in 1968. In 'A Study in Scarlet', Holmes first meets Watson, and the two men investigate the death of a man in a locked room, with no signs of a struggle. In 'The Boscombe Valley Mystery', Holmes is not convinced that a young man murdered his father, and searches for more clues. In 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', Holmes unearths the truth behind a sinister family legend. In 'The Sign of Four', Holmes deals with some dark and sinister characters, including a murderous pygmy, and a pair of deadly twins. In 'The Blue Carbuncle', Holmes holds the key to freeing an innocent man. The 2002 adaptation of 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', stars Richard Roxburgh as Holmes and Ian Hart as Dr Watson, portraying a younger pair of characters closer to the original Conan Doyle story. 'The Case of the Silk Stocking' (2005) is a brand-new story and is not based on any of Conan Doyle's work. Rupert Everett plays the great detective, called out of retirement by Watson (Hart) to solve a horrific series of murders, where young girls are being discovered choked to death on a silk stocking. Also included is 'The Strange Case of Sherlock Holmes and Arthur Conan Doyle', starring Douglas Henshall as the writer as he comes to invent the character of Holmes, inspired by the techniques of his mentor, the Edinburgh doctor Joseph Bell (Brian Cox).

Four films based on the literary works of Graham Greene. In 'The Third Man' (1949), writer Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) arrives in war-torn Vienna to take up a job with his friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles). He is informed that Lime died a week previously in a car accident, but upon investigating further discovers that the circumstances of Lime's death are shrouded in confusion. Martins begins to wonder just how well he knew his old friend after the head of local military police, Major Calloway (Trevor Howard), convinces him that Lime was in fact a black market drug racketeer responsible for many deaths. In 'Brighton Rock' (1947), 16-year-old gangster Pinkie Brown (Richard Attenborough) uses young waitress Rose Brown (Carol Marsh) as an alibi after commiting a murder at the race track. Worried that she will give him away, Pinkie marries Rose. However, his subsequent attempts to drive her to the point of suicide do not go according to plan. 'The Heart of the Matter' (1953) stars Trevor Howard as Scobie, an assistant police commissioner posted in Sierra Leone in World War 2. Exploring familiar Greene themes such as religion and work politics, the film co-stars Elizabeth Allan and Maria Schell as the wronged wife and the hard-done-by mistress. 'The Fallen Idol' (1948) is an award-winning adaptation of Greene's short story 'The Basement Room', and is told primarily from a child's perspective. Philippe (Bobby Henrey) is the young son of a diplomat who idolises Baines (Ralph Richardson), his father's butler. When Baines' wife is found murdered and Baines is implicated, Philippe does everything he can to point the investigation away from the butler. In doing so he makes matters worse - and also discovers that his hero is not the man he thought he was.

Roy Boulton directs this classic adaptation of the Graham Greene novel detailing the activities of a group of thugs in 1930s Brighton. Pinkie Brown (Richard Attenborough) is the head of a gang of small time crooks who make their money from a protection racket centred around Brighton race course. Pinkie is known for his short fuse and brutality, so his murder of a rival, Fred (Alan Wheatley), is very much in character. Pinkie believes, nonetheless, that he has got away with the crime until the promptings of a suspicious local woman, Ida (Hermione Baddeley), threaten to have the case reopened. Since only one person can identify him as the murderer, the waitress, Rose Brown (Carol Marsh), Pinkie comes up with an ingenious solution - marry Rose to stop her testifying against him. But will things go to plan?
