Product Description

Cult 1980 BBC television drama, starring Peter Firth as a time-traveller from the year 2130 who returns to 1980 London so he can study the workings of the transport system. Although bound by strict rules of non-engagement with the people of the past, Dominick cannot resist looking up his great-great-grandfather, causing further problems when he falls in love with local woman Jane (Caroline Langrishe). All this brings Dominick into conflict with his manager, the strict Caleb Line (Patrick Magee).

Synopsis

Peter Firth is the eponymous hero of this double-BANFF winner, an entertaining tale of time travel, romance, comedy and suspense, flipping between 2130 and 1980, with an ingenious twist in the tail.

Another Flip For Dominic: A sequel to the outstandingly successful Flipside of Dominick Hide. Peter Firth is a time-traveller from the year 2132 visiting London, 1982, and coming face to face with his past

what happens when a man from the future comes back to the present, or at least the early 1980s, to look for his ancestors? the idea is brilliantly conceived and the execution really doesn't seem dated. i first saw it at school, aroudn the time it was made, and remember loving it. watching it again was not a disappointment - and i would even recommend the sequel, included on the DVD, though it's not quite as satisfying as the first part.

The Flipside of Dominick Hide was made for BBC television in 1980. It caused a minor sensation when first shown, and was so successful that a sequel was commissioned. It very loosely falls into the genre of Science Fiction as it concerns the adventures and experiences of our hero Dominick (Colin Firth) as he travels in time back to London in the 1980's. However, the time travel thing is a useful device to generate a number of funny, sometimes hilarious, misunderstandings. It is also a romance, Dominick managing to become his own great-great- grandfather along the way (I think that's right). You will see.

It is full of gentle charm. Interesting characters. And the flying saucer...! It was wonderful to see this play again after all these years (for some obscure reason it hasn't been repeated); it really is a one-off. The follow-up 'Another Flip for Dominick', whilst inevitably not quite as striking as the original, is nevertheless very amusing too and nicely brings the tale to a happy end.

To have both these excellent plays on one DVD at this price is amazing; there is also an excellent booklet included. Picture and sound quality are fine for their age.

Very highly recommended.

** One mild spoiler**
If you haven't seen this classic before, you're in for a real treat. After 30 minutes, you'll be thinking "hey! This is /really/ clever!" An hour later you'll be saying "wow! That was beautiful!"
Those of you who can dimly remember seeing this gem a quarter of a century ago will be delighted to rediscover it, like a chance meeting with a long lost friend, and acknowledge that it certainly has stood the test of time (no pun /really/ intended).
The time travel motif is one of sci-fi's most potent weapons, and rarely has it been expressed with such poignancy and sheer humanity as here.
Peter Firth and Caroline Langrishe are nothing short of magnificent here, making the unbelievable believable and generating tons of sexual chemistry as a delightful byproduct. It is also a pleasure to see veteran actors Patrick Magee and Sylvia Coleridge contributing so much to the whole experience.
Don't get hung up on the minimal special effects (spot the ZX81 keyboard in Dominick's saucer!) or mono sound. Just revel in a terrific tale which will truly make you think and make you feel great to be alive! Lovely attentions to detail - the holographic musicians performing "classical" music (c 1960's) were a gem and Dominick's confusion when confronted with a real musician in a café was a charming moment.
The second and concluding episode - Another Flip for Dominick, whilst not quite matching the perfection of the original, explores time travel paradoxes yet further and has a genuinely moving conclusion. Dominick "rewinding" in order to avoid a row with his lover and the poor au pair bearing the brunt of it each time, was utterly brilliant!
Beautiful stuff indeed and a fitting epitaph indeed to the late great visionary Alan Gibson.

I've waited 25 years to see this play again-the best Play for Today ever in my opinion- so I was a little anxious that it wouldn't live up to my expectations/memory.
But... it's just as magical and memorable!! Peter Firth is truly amazing and the rest of the cast are brilliant too,
most of them familiar to TV/film viewers today.
A very witty script and a believable Future. Great hat too!
I even remembered the music and Pinner Bing Crosby!
I'm so glad that both plays were finally released so that a new generation can see them and enjoy.

I remember seeing this when I was 18 years old, and enjoyed it so much back then. I had always being hoping that it would be shown again on T.V. or released and now finally it has! It still lived up to my expectations and does not look that too out dated. My son also watched it with me and he really enjoyed the story line and mild comedy. If you have not seen this before, and enjoy a little science fiction, then this is a thourougly enjoyable piece of work. Their is also one extra "did you see", which reviews the piece. The sequel another flip is not as good as the first, but still very watchable.

Images from this film have haunted me for years and I wanted to see the film again. So glad that I found it on Amazon. Some things look surprisingly dated, but that only adds to the sensation of time travel. After all, we all travel through time, as a look in a photo album confirms. So what really does not change? Loved the idea of Dominic struggling to make a cup of coffee. Still delightful and provoking thought.

This, as far as I know, was never repeated on TV. A beautiful, low-tech, low special fx drama, but it was still time-traveling sci-fi, and fine quality acting. The follow-up, which is featured on the yet-to-be- released DVD, ties up all the loose ends. Very recommended - I'm getting a copy!!
