This fascinating 6-hour collection of entertaining short dramas, humorous trade films, perceptive documentaries and archival newsreel items is an essential history of the British boozer on film. From Arnold Miller's swinging Under the Table You Must Go, Philip Trevelyan's beautifully expressionistic The Ship Hotel, Tyne Main and German director Peter Nestler's Workingmen's club in Sheffield to the local quirks and characters of Richard Massingham's wartime Down at the Local, the whirlwind regional tour of A Round of Bass and Michael Palin and Terry Jones' humorous trade film Henry Cleans Up, this must-have double measure of DVDs is full to the brim with the sights and sounds of the great British pub, exploring its role as a place of communal gathering, game playing and opinion debating throughout the ages.
