Swinging London

Advantages: Endearing drama; good music; good London footage
Disadvantages: Probably an acquired taste; lack of extras

...This DVD (which for some reason comes in a CD-sized case) is only about £8 on amazon at time of writing. This is an odd little thing. It’s a children’s drama serial made in 1968 by the fledgling Thames television, apparently to test out their location fi ...

A Legendary Performance Of A Dangerous Duo
