Francis Durbridge Presents: Volume 1

Master storyteller Francis Durbridge conquered television from the 1950s-1980s with baffling and complex thrillers which kept audiences gripped and on tenderhooks. With fiendish plots and unforeseen twists and turns, record-breaking numbers of viewers flocked to these "event" thrillers which worked to the formula that everyone is lying, and nothing is as it seems. And always leave them on a cliffhanger! From middle-class murder and mayhem to upper crust crime passionnel, smuggling and death, Durbridge's spellbinding tales come from the Golden Age of crime fiction where Mayfair flats and the cocktail set mix with clergymen and cadavers. Assembled in a lethal identity parade for the first time on DVD, this inaugural collection of FRANCIS DURBRIDGE PRESENTS brings together four rare 1960s thrillers - THE DESPERATE PEOPLE, MELISSA, A MAN CALLED HARRY BRENT and A GAME OF MURDER.
