At last Channel Five’s Police Interceptors series from Raw Cut TV comes to you on DVD. Police Interceptors follows a hand-picked team of officers using the most powerful rally cars in the world to deny criminals the use of the roads. In their Evo VIIIs and Subaru Imprezas they are a force to be reckoned with as they clamp down on all types of crime in Essex.The deployment of the Eurocopter EC 135 with its powerful all seeing camera provides a much needed 'eye in the sky' for the aerial reconnaissance of vehicle pursuits, speeding incidents and drugs busting. It speeds along at 162 mph.Filmed over six months and based in Essex, arguably Britain s brashest county with a postive rogue's gallery of characters to match the series will have petrolheads the length and breadth of the country drooling over their remote controls. The pace never falters and the action never slackenswith the Essex Police ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) Intercept Team cracking down on road crimes as varied as driving whilst under the influence, driving whilst disqualified, dangerous driving, driving whilst using a mobile phone, failing to stop after an incident and driving without insurance, and a blonde Essex girl driving with number plate M TOO SXY amongst many, many more.Natalie Pinkham hosts the Police Interceptors Special Editions which go backstage with the crews and look again at some of the more exciting aspects of policing in Essex. Police Interceptors is fun, dramatic, hair raising and impossible to miss.
The Germans started World War Two with the deadly advantage of having developed a formidable Panzer Force both in terms of their tanks' mechanical superiority and the integrated Panzer Divisions preparations for their deployment. The British tanks by contrast were basic, unimaginative throwbacks to the crude designs of the Great War.
Tanks were needed to smash through defences and enemy lines, to destroy gun positions and to isolate and paralyse the enemy in minimal time. As the war progressed relentlessly across Northern Europe British Tanks met the challenge of the heavier German Tanks by successfully mating the 17 Pdr Gun to the Sherman Tank creating the tank destroying Firefly. Other adaptations to tanks included the ability to 'swim' and lay bridges - helping to maintain the flow of armour into the heart of the Reich.
British Tanks Of The Second World War is the fascinating story of the design triumphs and adaptations that turned around the mismanagement, underproduction and technical inferiority of British tanks at the beginning of the war into a fearsome strike force that outfought the Panzer divisions and paved the way for Victory!
Beach Obstacles (1943, 31 minutes) - A fascinating silent film illustrating the many ways adapted tanks can be employed to overcome passive beach defences - walls, wire-filled gullies, concrete 'egg' obstacles, steel tubes etc. Includes images of Churchill tanks with 'Carpet'laying equipment enabling troops to cross areas of densely packed barbed wire and customised Convenanter and Matilda with a variety of explosive charges.
