BULLETPROOF SERIES 1 & 2 BOX SET
Dive deep undercover with Londonís finest as they return to the crime-filled streets in the second series of Bulletproof. Mixing drama, action and comedy in a fresh take on the police buddy genre, Bulletproof Series 2 arrives on DVD & digital on 8 June and the Series 1 and 2 Box Set on 15 June. Acclaimed actor, writer and director Noel Clarke and chart-topping rapper turned respected actor Ashley Walters lead the action as two undercover cops tasked with bringing down the East Endís toughest criminals in this Sky original series co-created by the pair. Adrenalin-fuelled and packed with laughs as well as high-octane action, as all buddy-cop aficionados know, the key to its success is the bromance and banter between Officer Ronnie Bishop (Clarke) and Senior Officer Aaron Pike (Walters). By-the-book, family man Pike and raised-on-the-streets Bishop may come from different backgrounds, but they work brilliantly together, even if things donít always go to plan. Picking up a year after the events of the explosive first series, series two finds Bishop burying himself in work and one-night-stands, while Pike tries to balance his job with his family. Soon the pair are drawn into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with the Markides, a notorious and elusive crime family who exist in the shadowy world of narcotics, people-trafficking and money-laundering. As the lines between good and evil, friend and foe, become blurred, will going undercover push the boys to breaking point? New additions to the team include a young officer with questionable intentions, and a new Deputy Director who takes a keen interest in our team, but will he help or hinder them? Facing love, loss, and ghosts of the past, Bishop and Pike must go further than they ever have before to save those they love, and each other ... itís a good thing theyíre Bulletproof.

LAUGHTER IN PARADISE
The four remaining relatives of famed practical joker Henry Russell are brought together to hear his last will and testament, revealing a £50,000 inheritance for each of them, if they can complete a set task that is completely at odds with their character. The assignments are designed to reflect their greatest shortcomings and test their ability to adapt, and ultimately change for the better. Law-abiding retired army officer Deniston (the incomparable Alastair Sim) secretly writes scandalous novels, until he is given a week to get himself arrested for an actual crime and jailed for exactly 28 days. Haughty Agnes (Fay Compton) must find employment as a housekeeper in a middle-class home and retain her position for a month despite her disdain. Simon (Guy Middleton), a penniless womanising rogue, has to marry the first single woman he speaks to, such as the cigarette girl at the club he frequents. Finally, timid Herbert (George Cole) needs to hold up the bank manager he works for with a mask and a toy pistol. What could possibly go wrong? This newly restored version of Laughter in Paradise looks better than ever in this DVD, Blu-ray and Digital release on 29 June as the latest addition to Studiocanalís Vintage Classics catalogue, coming hot on the heels of the recently restored The Green Man - two films are a must for any self-respecting Alastair Sim fan. Extras include Alastair Sim and Laughter in Paradise - an interview with Stephen Fry; a rare Ministry of Information short, Nero: Save Fuel (1943), starring Alastair Sim & George Cole; and Alastair Simís Rectorial Address at Edinburgh University (1949).
