`Do not despise the snake for having no horns, for who is to say it will not become a dragon?'

Undoubtedly the "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" of its day, the classic cult TV series 'The Water Margin' is a timeless epic and very much a touchstone for anybody who grew up in the mid-to-late 70s. Now, for the first time ever, the entire 26-episode serial is being made available on this complete DVD box set.

It is ancient China, one thousand years ago; the time of the Tsung Dynasty. A cruel and corrupt government has driven many upright, law-abiding citizens to rebel, becoming outlaws determined to end the tyranny of their unscrupulous and murderous leader Kao Chiu (Kei Sato). A renegade force of "nine dozen heroes" is forced to hide out in the water margins of Liang Shan Po where, steadily growing in strength, they plot to overthrow their oppressors. Struggling to maintain his honour and nobility, former army officer Lin Chung (Atsuo Nakamura) becomes the reluctant driving force behind the rebellious band of brothers as they embark on their epic and heroic fight for liberty.

Adapted from the famous Chinese folk legend, 'The Water Margin' was translated and dubbed for the English market by the production team responsible for "Monkey" and featured the vocal talents of Miriam Margolyes (Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets), David Collings (the voice of Monkey) and as narrator, Burt Kwouk (Kiss Of The Dragon; Cato in the Pink Panther films). Originally screened to tremendous acclaim on British television by the BBC in 1976, the series combined dazzling, Kurosawa-inspired sword fighting action, high-flying sorcery and superlative special effects with a compelling blend of imagination, mysticism, wisdom and philosophy.

Guaranteed to stir fond nostalgic memories in those who are already familiar with its magnificence, the release of 'The Water Margin' on DVD is also likely to win over a whole new generation of fans.
