The Beiderbecke Affair - 3 DVD box set - Region 1 Non-classified

£9.99

Product description

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS REGION 1

All six episodes of the first of Alan Plater's comedy drama trilogy first shown in the UK in 1985.
Woodwork teacher and jazz buff Trevor Chaplin (James Bolam) has always fantasized that a beautiful blonde will enter his life and simultaneously provide him with rare recordings of his hero, jazz great Bix Beiderbecke. Unlikely as it seems, this is just what happens one evening when Trevor is at home in his flat. It is an encounter which will ultimately involve him and his colleague, independent political campaigner Jill Swinburne (Barbara Flynn), in exploding lawnmowers, political corruption and the strange world of 'black economists' Big Al (Terence Rigby) and Little Norm (Danny Schiller).

The music is performed by Frank Ricotti, with Kenny Baker as the featured cornet soloist, and is in the style of Bix Beiderbecke.
