Gary Oldman is Clive ‘Bex’ Bissell, an intelligent family man with a good job, who also happens to be the leader of the notorious East London hooligan firm, the Inner City Crew. Bex plans to unite rival gangs into a national firm to take to the European Championships, but that will mean defeating Oboe’s Birmingham crew and the South London Buccaneers led by arch rival Yeti (Phil Davis). As Bex’s craving for violence becomes an obsession, events spiral out of control. Alan Clarke’s unflinching drama courted much controversy when it was first broadcast in a toned down version on the BBC. Now, it is rightly considered a masterpiece, due in no small part to the brilliance of Oldman’s central performance – one of the finest of his career. Newly transferred in HD, and available on Blu-ray for the very first time, The Firm is presented here in two versions: the never-before-seen Director’s Cut, which re-instates a number of bold sequences previously considered too controversial for audiences; and the original BBC TV broadcast version. The complete Alan Clarke at the BBC is also available in DVD and Blu-ray box sets from the BFI. Extras: Remastered in HD for the first time The Firm: Director’s Cut (World premiere presentation) The Firm: Original broadcast version (Blu-ray premiere presentation) David Leland introduces The Firm (1991) Elephant (1989, 38 minutes): Clarke’s final, unflinching drama, set in Northern Ireland Elephant audio commentary with producer Danny Boyle Alan Clarke: Out of His Own Light (2016): documentary on Clarke and his final works Cast and Crew: Director: Alan Clarke (Scum, Rita Sue and Bob Too) Cast: Gary Oldman (Batman series, Leon), Lesley Manville (Secrets & Lies, Maleficient, River), Phil Davis (Poldark, Sherlock), Steve McFadden (EastEnders) Awards and Reviews: Winner of the Prix Europa (1990) for TV Fiction ‘One of the best dramas ever on television’ Guardian ‘The nearest TV ever got to getting under the skin of soccer hooligans’ The Sun ‘Fizzing with testosterone’ The Times ‘By some way the best movie on the subject of football hooliganism and a key text on the subject of Thatcher’s Britain’ - The Observer 4.5/5 ‘a brilliant and compelling drama’ – Film4 ‘Oldman is stunning’ – Total Film
With a show-jumping career spanning over 40 years, Nick Skelton is a legend in the equestrian world. No other rider has won so many major competitions on so many different horses, and he is as popular at Olympia and Hickstead as he is at Aachen, Geneva, Paris and Spruce Meadows. Skelton has competed in eight Olympic Games. He was part of the gold medal-winning Great Britain team at London 2012 and made history by winning the individual Olympic gold medal at Rio 2016, riding at the age of 58 his beloved horse Big Star. He began riding at the age of 18 months on a Welsh pony called Oxo. At the age of 17 in 1975, Skelton took team silver and individual gold at the Junior European Championships. He has competed many times at the European Show Jumping Championships, winning numerous medals, both individually and with the British team. In 1980 he competed in the Alternative Olympics, where he helped the British team to a silver medal. He still holds the British Show Jumping High Jump record that he set in 1978. In 2000 Skelton was forced into an early retirement after he broke his neck from a serious fall. But following an amazing recovery, he came out of retirement in 2002 to compete again. Now he tells the full story of his eventful life and matchless achievements.

4 August, 2012. Super Saturday. On the most electric night in the history of British sport, Mo Farah braved the pain and punishment to seize Olympic gold in the 10,000m - and in the process went from being a talented athlete to a national treasure. Seven days later, Mo seized his second gold at the 5000m to go where no British distance runner has gone before. Records have tumbled before him: European track records at 1500m, 5000m indoors, and 10,000m; British track records at 5000m, 3000m indoors and 10k on the road have all fallen to Mohamed 'Mo' Farah: the boy from Somalia who came to Britain at the age of eight, leaving behind his twin brother, and with just a few words of English, and a natural talent for running. His secondary school PE teacher Alan Watkinson spotted his potential and began easing this human gazelle towards the racetrack. In 2001 Mo showed his promise by winning the 5000m at the European Junior Championships. Soon he was smashing a string of British and European records. He began living with a group of elite Kenyan runners, following their strict regime of run, sleep, eat and rest. Mo was determined to leave no stone uncovered in his bid for distance-running glory. After a disappointing Olympics in Beijing Mo took the bold decision to relocate to Portland, Oregon to work under legendary coach Alberto Salazar. The results were emphatic as Mo took silver at the 10,000m and then raced to gold in the 5000m at the 2011 World Championships in Daegu. Even better would soon follow at London 2012. Twin Ambitions is much more than an autobiography by a great Olympic champion. It's a moving human story of a man who grew up in difficult circumstances, separated from his family at an early age, who struggled to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and realise his dream. 1.

Saul Dawson-Smith can memorise the sequence of a shuffled deck of cards in under a minute; he can recite pi to a thousand decimal places and he remembers every conversation he's ever had. He is 10 years old. Howard McNamee is 28: lonely, overweight and poorly-educated. He lives in the north of England, far from the scene of his difficult Glasgow childhood, in the home he shared with his mother before she died. Struggling to pay his rent with a succession of menial jobs, Howard comes home each day and talks to the late Mrs McNamee, as he sits in front of the wardrobe that still contains her clothes. Through a series of unexpected events, these two solitary people find themselves forming an unlikely friendship, as Howard is taken under the wing of Saul's parents, thrust into a life in London (where he makes new friends, tries to navigate a bewildering new city, and accidentally acquires a Russian internet fiancee) and Saul prepares himself for the World Memory Championships - the event he has been training for his whole life. But as the pressure mounts on the little boy, and his well-meaning but single-minded parents grow increasingly less able to see beyond their own ambitions for their son, Howard realises he must act to save his small friend from a life of soul-destroying competitions and unbearable expectation. The decision he reaches turns all of their lives upside-down. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Moody. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/boli/000716/bk_boli_000716_sample.mp3.
