Swinging UK / UK Swings Again - Music

Swinging UK / UK Swings Again
This nostalgic double-bill brings back the sound of the Sixties, as DJs Brian Matthew (host of Radio 2's ever-popular Sounds of the Sixties), Kent Walton and the legendary Alan 'Fluff' Freeman ("not arf, pop pickers!") introduce some of the biggest stars of the British Beat Boom era. This amazing showcase features, among others, The Animals, The Applejacks, The Hollies, Lulu and the Luvvers, The Merseybeats, Millie (My Boy Lollipop), Brian Poole and the Tremeloes, The Tornadoes, The Four Pennies and The Swinging Blue Jeans.

Filmed at Shepperton Studios, London, these two half-hour films were first released in 1964 and produced by writer, director and producer Harold Baim - perhaps best known for his 'quota-quickies': unique 30-minute travelogues shown in British cinemas during the post-war period in an attempt to offset the dominance of Hollywood. This release brings the two films together for the first time on DVD.

Special Features:

Jugglers and Acrobats: originally the short supporting feature to the Beatles' A Hard Day's Night, this film shows the rich diversity of the kind of variety acts - jugglers, acrobats, unicyclists and puppeteers - that were usurped by the incumbent rock'n'roll art-form.

Section from Reels Within Reels: this surviving section of the lost film Reels Within Reels gives a behind-the-scenes look at the recording processes of the 1960s music industry.

Britain By Jove
Britain By Jove collects together all 4 episodes of the famous comedy travelogue produced by British Pathe in the 1960s to promote holidays in Great Britain. The shows were presented by much loved ventriloquist Ray Alan and his celebrated companion Lord Charles and filmed in full colour. Lord Charles sets the tone with a rousing patriotic speech that "We are living in a touring paradise " before embarking on a whistlestop tour of the whole country - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - with his erstwhile chauffeur Cavendish played by Roddy Maude-Roxby. Lord Charles casts his beady eye over and passes his inimitable comments on places such as :- Cambridge, Newmarket, Norfolk Broads, Burnham Thorpe, Chatsworth House, North Yorkshire Moors, Robin Hood's Bay, Newcastle, Inverness, Edinburgh, the Highlands (Lochs, Whiskey Distillery, Birdwatching, Angling and Golfing), Antrim and Londonderry in Northern Ireland, The Giant's Causeway, The English Lakes, Tenby and Portmeirion in Wales, Stratford-on-Avon, Bath, Land's End, Torquay, Boscastle, Mousehole, Plymouth Hoe, Lulworth Cove, London and The Thames (Hampton Court, St.Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly, Hyde Park and The Tower Of London), Oxford, Henley, Cliveden House, Windsor and The Isle Of Man.
