First transmitted on Channel 4 in 1990, 'Nightingales' focuses on three security guards who have the unenviable task of working the graveyard shift in a tower block, a situation which regularly turns to the surreal. A werewolf that performs open-heart surgery, bouts of Shakespearian verse and an undercover police operation are just some of the bizarre situations - and confrontations - the trio find themselves in. Starring the acclaimed Robert Lindsay as Carter, David Threlfall and James Ellis, 'Nightingales' was a critical success when first transmitted on Channel 4 and is still fondly remembered to this day. As well as featuring an all-star cast, 'Nightingales' was written by Paul Makin and directed by the acclaimed Tony Dow. This set contains all of the episodes from both series' of this unhinged sitcom, which will appeal to anyone who likes 'The League of Gentleman' and 'Little Britain'.
