Synopsis:
"Armchair Cinema" was one of the first projects undertaken by Thames Television's Euston Films subsidiary. Based on the format of the hugely successful and influential 'Armchair Theatre', 'Armchair Cinema' presented a series of individual film dramas and is perhaps best remembered for one groundbreaking and phenomenally successful film - 'Regan', which introduced John Thaw and Dennis Waterman's maverick Flying Squad detectives, gaining a huge audience and leading to the commissioning of 'The Sweeney'.
The standard of drama offered by the series was consistently high; its flexibility and scope attracted some of the best contemporary television writers, and every film showcased the talents of first-class performers - including John Thaw, Edward Woodward, Anthony Valentine and Tom Bell. This set also includes 'Suspect' and 'Rumour' - two Thames Television filmed plays by Mike Hodges (Get Carter) which were a dry run for the Euston Films style - alongside 'The Sailor's Return' and 'Charlie Muffin', two standalone television movies made by Euston Films.
