Tipping the Velvet: Set in England in the 1890s, Tipping The Velvet is a colourful passionate and entertaining love story, which follows our heroine's growth into womanhood. Contains episodes 1-3.

Gunpowder, Treason and Plot: From Bafta award winning writer Jimmy McGovern comes a vivid portrayal of the Gunpowder Plot, and the events that inspired it. Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, Angela's Ashes) leads a prestigious cast in this lavish production. Peopled with infamous characters, driven by compelling drama and rife with love, lust, politics and prejudice, we are offered a gripping ride through a fantastic period of history. Set against the brutal landscape of rebellion against religious repression, Gunpowder, Treason and Plot dramatizes the short reign of Mary, Queen of Scots and the extraordinary battle of her son, James I, with the Catholic conspiracy against him. Guy Fawkes' Gunpowder Plot became one of the most scandalous events in English history, and remains so to this day.

Frankenstein: Faithfully derived from Mary Shelley's gothic epic, comes the chilling tale of one man and his soulless desire to surpass the boundaries of mortal humankind. Starring Donald Sutherland (Cold Mountain, The Italian Job), William Hurt (The Village, AI, Lost In Space), and Luke Goss (Blade II), the crew of a weather-beaten ship stranded in an icy Northern sea rescue a man close to death - Victor Frankenstein. Delirious with cold, Frankenstein recounts his own story of a young scientist possessed of a dark and obsessive thirst for knowledge who has challenged nature at its very core by creating a monster - stitched together of severed limbs and torsos stolen from the morgue.

Looks pretty reasonably priced.
Heat + rep left.

This looks a good price for these BBC dramas. Well spotted.

I think amazon's got the wrong retail price for this!It should be £24.99-amazon has it at £6.99!

thanks amibees voted

Good price - but the film is very poor when it comes to historical facts!

Good Price but may I be a little pedantic?

If its called "The Historical Trilogy" shouldn't it relate to actual history? I wasn't aware that Frankenstein really did exist!!

Good point, but it has been said that Mary Shelley based her novel on the real life work of Konrad Dippel, a German scientist who had reportedly re-animated the odd human corpse here and there.....
