Britain By Jove - Social History

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.

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.

Roving Report 1958 (26 mins)Horrendous weather blighted the 1958 rally and this report shows the cars struggling in the ice and snow, concluding all the drivers must be slightly 'insane'!

Roving Report 1959 (18 mins)Opening with the presentation of the Winners Cup by Prince Rainier of Monaco, this report then looks back on the rally and at many of the different starting locations.

Including footage of drivers using a new intercom system and rare footage of rallying behind The Iron Curtain.
