If this is the one with Sean Connery it has been out on region 1 for quite a while.

It is the one with Connery.

I think it was made for BBC television's 25th anniversary (yes, I know it hadn't been broadcasting all that time).

Yeah, it's just the shock of Cartier being released in region 2, is all.

It's up on play.com for pre-order. And at £9.99 this one was a no-brainer.

More Rudolph Cartier please!

1984 please!

The one I'd like to see is Cartier's Stalingrad.

I'm so glad I held off from buying it from the US. At £9.99 definitely a no-brainer.

Agreed and agreed.

I only saw Stalingrad once, at the National Film Theatre as was, in around September 1990. Very good stuff. Cartier at his best, giving the impression of human disaster on a vast scale with just a handful of sets.

Here's hoping this release means more BBC/Warner releases may see release over here. I'd love to see the 'Alice in wonderland and Dennis potter's 'Alice' as they've gone out under that label, as well as 'an age of kings' and 'not only but also'.

I can't say for sure if any more Cartier is coming out, but a while ago I did mention to a chap at Simply, who is a mate's hubby, that Cartier's work would be much appreciated on DVD.

I'll make enquiries...

Is this the one from 1966 (?) with Deborah Watlng as Alice? I've always wanted to see that and may have to get the region 1 (which, obviously, would mean it will be announced for region 2 a week after I buy it!).

Yes it is, I'm informed it's included, as an extra, on the R1 release of Miller's Alice in Wonderland.

Have all these in R1 already.
Apparently Shadow of the Tower is coming later this year as well and will be sold as a combined pack with Age of Kings as well as separately.

I've got Miller's Alice in Wonderland on video, and have had it for several years, so I presume it was also released on R2.

I'll definitely give this one a go.

Shame the original Cartier version no longer exists, though.

Enquiries were made. No more Cartier BBC work is planned for release, but they are going to be releasing some more Hammer films via Sony. No titles as yet, but I'm still waiting for full details.

Someone has pointed me to a Telegraph article about this. It seems to imply that the library didn't know they had it, which seems a bit strange -

"Hey Fred - you know that tape that was propping up the washbasin in the outside loo, the 2" 90' ? Well, it wasn't the backing copy of a studio recording of Terry and June, but a completely lost major drama...."

Presumbly it was actually a 35mm film recording in a rusty can...?

It's just lazy PR spin. I saw a timecoded copy of this excellent production about ten years ago so if it was 'misplaced' it had certainly been found by then. Plus it's been out on DVD for a year in America, as pointed out above.

I've got some magic beans the Telegraph can buy if they're interested.

They also used clips from it on The Late Show's Cartier tribute, if memory serves. Definitely in something like that anyway.

According to the Beeb, it has only been rediscovered this year!

Since there are around 50 reels worth of 35mm and 16mm material for AK it's extremely unlikely that it was all misplaced and then "rediscovered" recently. Possibly the odd misfiled can was found during the move to Perivale...?
