Preview- Threads (Remastered Bluray)

Nominated for seven BAFTAs, and winning four including Best Single Drama, Threads depicts the effects of global nuclear war on the city of Sheffield. Written by Barry Hines (Kes) and directed by Mick Jackson (The Bodyguard) it is unflinching in its presentation of the weeks leading up to war, the attack itself and the bleak years of nuclear winter that follow.

From its first broadcast Threads became one of the most significant and influential commissions ever seen on the BBC. When the drama aired on CNN in 1985 it was rumoured to have changed President Reagan’s nuclear policy, and to date it has only been seen on UK TV screens three times. So disturbing is the screenplay that special permission from the highest editorial levels at the BBC is required for any TV screening.

This 2-disc set presents the original film remastered in 2k from the original BBC CRI 16mm prints. It is available in HD on Blu-Ray for the very first time in the UK, and includes the world premiere of the director-approved widescreen edition.

First broadcast Sunday 23 September 1984 on BBC2 at 9.30pm.

Special Features Include:

Audio Commentaries with lead actress Karen Meagher and Director Mick Jackson

Director-approved widescreen edition

PDF of Radio Times articles and letters (UK Exclusive)

Documentaries: Shooting the Annihilation, Auditioning for the Apocalypse, Destruction Designer, Stephen Thrower on Threads.
