Girl troubles and run-ins with the police pale into insignificance when he's forced to participate in the school pantomime. And why does he keep seeing his hero Kenny Dalglish...?A Walter Mitty/Billy Liar type of character, Scully is outstandingly brought to life by Andrew Schofield (Sid and Nancy, GBH). With a solid supporting cast including Mark McGann (Shackleton, The Hanging Gale), Cathy Tyson (Mona Lisa, The Bill), Jean Boht (Bread), Sam Kelly ('Allo 'Allo) and Tom Georgeson (Between The Lines, Bleak House), Scully also features a memorable turn from Elvis Costello as trainspotter Henry (Costello also wrote and performed the theme song - Turning the Town Red).Featuring the core Liverpool team who would go on to become League Champions later that year and win the 1986 FA Cup, Scully is more than a football drama; it captures the sentiments of working class life in Merseyside in the eighties and remains one of Bleasdale's most memorable dramatisations to date.Special Features:Extract From South Bank Show on Alan Bleasdale (13 January 1985).Interview with Alan Bleasdale on Weekend (25 May 1984).

This delightful Ealing-style comedy from Muriel Box tells the story of Mr & Mrs Lord, who refuse to move out of their corner shop on the South Bank, to make way for the building of the Festival Hall. When the Government decides to build the Festival of Britain exhibition site, everything appears to be going to plan. All except for the fact that the main road and the pedestrian subway into the site are blocked by the House of Lords, a corner shop owned by Henry Lord (Stanley Holloway) and his wife Lillian (Kathleen Harrison). When the Lords decline the compensation offered by government civil servant Mr Filch (Naughton Wayne) they barricade themselves in to avoid the demolition of their beloved home. And when they are joined by an ambitious BBC sports broadcaster the outside world gets to hear a running commentary of the hilarious events from inside the House of Lords .
