5.0 out of 5 stars Oh what has happened to BBC drama ?, 15 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helen Mirren At The BBC (1974-1995, incl. 11 BBC dramas + interviews) [DVD] (DVD)
An excellent collection of Helen Mirren's career
and a chance to see her as the fine actress she has
always been since the 1970s.
Another revelation is that all the talk of dumbing
down at the BBC is true. In the 1970s it broadcast
two 17th century plays with fine casts and high
production standards. Obviously, viewers were assumed
to be intelligent and capable of responding to high
culture. Today the BBC would never dream of broadcasting
these two plays.

The box cover tells us NOTHING about the contents.

Thank you

just scroll down the page until you see all you wish to know re this DVD; by the way, I saw The Changeling when it was first shown and was enthralled by it!

I know what you mean as I have 'almost' done it myself. But, you could have been waiting forever for someone to tell you, or they could be very rude, as I have read on other comments!
The DVD is on my wish list until after the holiday!

Best wishes
Kristin

Getting anything on the BBC is very difficult; Marcus Brigstocke, Immando Iannucci etcetera hold the reins and have very specific ideas of what goes on and who gets the budget - namely themselves.
