It has been a busy month at Talking Pictures TV and July sees the first of our celebrity “take over days.” We were very lucky to have been asked by the brilliant British comedian ‘Vic Reeves,’ what he could do to help spread the word, so tune in on Sunday 23rd July and see some of Vic’s film choices along with some insightful interview chats between himself and comedy historian Robert Ross.

We are delighted to be able to bring you the complete series of The Scales of Justice, both on Talking Pictures TV and also as a DVD box set this month, details overleaf.

We are launching on the local TV station KMTV in July on Freeview channel 7, so those of you in Kent without access to our channel will now be able to tune in every day. The number of standard Freeview local channels we are now on is growing, so if you don’t have Freeview HD its worth checking normal Freeview channel 7 and see if we are on there for parts of the day.

Some interesting club specials this month from the BFI and British Transport Films Box Sets at excellent prices with free postage, plus some new specially designed limited edition enamel mugs, perfect for Holiday Homes, Camping and being in the great British outdoors.

Almost final call for tickets at our exclusive Elstree Studios event – Sunday 17th September – grab your tickets while you still can! Full details inside.

That’s it for now, but we will be back in August with details of our next Renown Release

Until then, many thanks for your support,

Noel, Sarah and Neill

Following on from the success of the Anglo-Amalgamated’s Scotland Yard and Edgar Wallace Mysteries, the production company scored another hit with The Scales of Justice, thirteen dramas based on real-life trials that dramatise events from the alleged crime to the courtroom.

This complete collection contains all thirteen films, produced between 1962 and 1967.

Introduced by crime writer and criminologist Edgar Lustgarten, the dramas feature performances from some of the era’s finest, and most instantly recognisable, actors including Alexandra Bastedo, Patrick Wymark, Peter Barkworth, Ann Lynn, Imogen Hassall, Zena Marshall, Derek Francis, Keith Barron, Ernest Clark and Garfield Morgan.
