The BFI announces its January and February DVD and Blu-ray releases

2 November 2013

As that headline does somewhat more than suggest, the BFI have confirmed four of their DVD and Blu-ray releases for January and February 2014. These include the BFI National Archive’s stunning restoration of The Epic of Everest, John Akomfrah's documentary The Stuart Hall Project, Claude Sautet’s 1960 crime thriller Classe tous risques, and The British Transport Films Collection Volume 12: The Driving Force.

The BFI National Archive’s stunning restoration of The Epic of Everest will be released on Dual Format Edition (DVD and Blu-ray) on 20th January 2014. Captain John Noel’s extraordinary official record of the tragic 1924 Everest expedition features a new score by composer Simon Fisher Turner, and also includes a recreation of the orchestral soundtrack which accompanied the film upon its original screenings.

 

The Stuart Hall Project (DVD / January) is a provocative and inspiring documentary from director John Akomfrah about one of Britain’s most influential cultural theorists and political thinkers of the post-war period.

 

Classe tous risques (Dual Format Edition / February) – the first ever UK home entertainment release for Claude Sautet's stylish 1960 crime thriller – recently called ‘the greatest ever French gangster movie’ by John Patterson in the Guardian Guide.

 

The British Transport Films Collection Volume 12: The Driving Force (2-DVD set / February) – the next collection of films in our best-selling BTF series focuses on the improvements, developments and new services offered by British Transport in the post-war period.

We'll have more details of each of these discs nearer to the release dates.
