Till Death Us Do Part… found, restored, released at last.
‘Wiped? Me? Bloody wiped? Bloody marvellous, innit? What do they think they’re playing at? But I’ve got the last laugh, ain’t I? Because I ain’t bloody wiped at all! I’ve been here all along, in me pinny, wallpapering the front room for the silly moo! Someone’s only gone and found the film, haven’t they… about bloody time too, if you ask me. And as if that wasn’t enough, they’ve gone and stuck it on a DVD and Blu-ray with my bloody feature film on there and all. I dunno about that cover, though… me, in me birthday suit, holding me pipe over me unmentionables! Of course, it’s from Network, innit. Stands to reason…’
In case Alf’s rant doesn’t make it clear, Network’s DVD and Blu-ray release of the 1968 film Till Death Us Do Part is not only superbly restored in high definition… it comes with the added bonus of a lost episode. Sex Before Marriage was broadcast only once by the BBC before disappearing into oblivion… from which it re-emerged recently in the form of a 16mm telerecording, included as a bonus feature on this upcoming release.
There’s an exclusive preview below, and the film+episode is available to pre-order now, for release on 28 January.
