Dennis Potter's astonishing six-part miniseries Pennies from Heaven remains one of the edgiest, most audacious things ever conceived for television. The story tells of one Arthur Parker (Bob Hoskins), a sheet-music salesman in 1930s England. Beaten down by economic hard times and the sexual indifference of his proper wife (Gemma Craven), Arthur cannot understand why his life can't be like the beautiful songs he loves. On a sales trip through the Forest of Dean, he meets a virginal rural woman (Cheryl Campbell) he suspects may be his ideal. Ruination follows. Punctuating virtually every scene is a vintage pop song--lip-synched and sometimes danced out by the characters. This startling innovation makes the contrast between Arthur's brutish life and his bourgeois dreams even more dramatic

Be careful with this one. Despite the picture, it appears to be the 1936 film starring Bing Crosby that they are punting and not the classic Dennis Potter mini series.

Yes, this should be a 3-disc boxset, but they're saying only 1 disc. The RRP isn't £12.99 either!

I'd click 'expire' but I'd only get reported. :roll:

OK, so I'll hit expire then... nothing to lose and it isn't the BBC one after all
