Burton and Taylor
Oscar and Screen Actor Guild nominee Helena Bonham Carter received a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal, opposite Dominic West, of Hollywood's most famously volatile on-again-off-again couple. Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor had one of the most fascinating, glamorous and tempestuous relationships of the 20th century–the two most famous movie stars of their day who played out every high and low of their love affairs, multiple marriages and divorces right in the public eye. Burton and Taylor follows their private and public relationship played out against their ill-fated appearance in a 1983 revival of Noel Coward's stage classic, Private Lives. Tempestuous, funny, and dripping with diamonds–this is the last battle of the Burtons. Bonus materials include two behind the scenes featurettes: Setting the Stage and Love is the Drug.

The Lady Vanishes
A stunning new adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic '30s thriller sees a beautiful, spoiled young woman risk her life to solve the mysterious disappearance of a woman on a train. Iris Carr (Tuppence Middleton) is travelling across Europe by train when she unwittingly becomes embroiled in a sinister Balkan plot. Feeling disorientated after a fall, Iris is befriended by Miss Froy, an elderly English woman sharing her carriage. But when she wakes up from a short sleep, Miss Froy has vanished without a trace. As fellow passengers claim the lady never existed, Iris fights to discover what actually happened–and prove that she’s not going crazy.

Doctor Who: The Moonbase
In 2070, Earth’s weather is controlled with ease from the Moon. When the TARDIS arrives at the Moonbase, the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton), along with his friends Polly, Ben and Jamie, is accused of starting a plague that is killing off the base’s crew. It’s not long, however, before the time travelers discover the true cause of the deaths – a powerful, unstoppable race that the Doctor has met before: the Cybermen. This digitally remastered classic Second Doctor adventure is complete at last with two animated episodes, and comes with bonus material including Audio Commentary, Lunar Landing making-of featurette, photo gallery and more.
