BFI Reveals August and September Releases

Posted May 13, 2014 05:07 PM by Webmaster

British Film Institute (BFI)The British Film Institute has announced that it plans to add a number of films to its catalog between August and September. All upcoming releases will be officially announced and detailed at a later time.

Some long sought-after BBC science fiction titles all coming to DVD for the very first time are among the highlights of the BFI's Blu-ray and DVD schedule for August and September 2014. Forming part of the BFI's forthcoming, nationwide Sci-Fi celebrations, these rarely-seen gems from the BBC Archives are sure to send both nostalgic and futuristic thrills down the spines of classic British television fans and dedicated followers of fantasy filmmaking.

Out of the Unknown a 6-DVD box set compiling all surviving episodes, along with some fragments, from the legendary BBC2 anthology series, with episodes written by such luminaries of the genre as John Wyndham, Ray Bradbury and J G Ballard first broadcast between 1965 and 1971 (September).

The Changes a 2-DVD set of the intense, techno-phobic 1976 series, based on Peter Dickinson's best selling trilogy of books (August).

Red Shift a classic 1978 BBC Play for Today, directed by John Mackenzie (The Long Good Friday) and adapted by Alan Garner (The Owl Service) from his own fantasy novel (September).

There will be more Sci-Fi releases to follow later in the year as well.

Other releases are:

Goltzius & the Pelican Company the daring and controversial latest film from BAFTA-winning director Peter Greenaway is released on DVD and Blu-ray (August).

A Farewell to Arms Dual Format Edition of the newly-restored version of Frank Borzage's World War I -set classic drama based on Ernest Hemingway's novel, starring Gary Cooper, with unique and exclusive extras (September).

That is sensational news on Out of the Unknown - I always thought it would be prohibitively expensive to clear the rights for the series on disc due to many of the episodes being based on short stories of very famous authors. I will be getting it the day it comes out, when it will happily take up residence next to my Twilight Zone and Outer Limits sets!

Wow, OUT OF THE UNKNOWN is great news and will be day one for me. I'm excited to see what their other Science Fiction releases are going to be!

Really cool to see Out of the Unknown coming to dvd. There are also still rumors that several of the missing episodes have been found by Phil Morris (same guy that recently found two missing Doctor Who stories). But rumor has it he hasn't yet returned anything else back to the BBC yet so doubt they would be on this release if it's true.

Hot damn! about the Out of the Unknown set. I have about 20 episodes in XviD format, a couple incomplete, and another couple audio-only. I'm thrilled to be able to get an official copy.

Also interested in the new Greenaway film.
