3 September 2013 3:08 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Oct. 15, 2013

Price: Blu-ray/DVD Combo $24.97

Studio: Shout! Factory

Michael Caine leads a Nazi paratrooper plot to kidnap Winston Churchill in The Eagle Has Landed.

Michael Caine (Dressed to Kill), Donald Sutherland (1900) and Robert Duvall (The Conversation) lead a star-studded cast in the 1976 World War II action film The Eagle Has Landed, which makes its U.S. Blu-ray debut with this release from Shout! Factory.

Based on Jack Higgins’ best-selling novel, the film revolves around a Nazi plot to kidnap Winston Churchill while he is resting in a desolate Norfolk village. Nazi officers Colonel Radl (Duvall), Colonel Steiner (Caine) and Liam Devlin (Sutherland) are enlisted to carry out the operation, which if successful, would irrevocably alter the outcome of the war. Disguised as Polish airmen, the team of paratroopers descends upon England only to be interrupted by an unforeseeable incident which threatens to derail their treacherous mission. »

Dancing on the Edge, episode two

5 February 2013 2:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Miss Fancy Knickers, Aka Lady Cremore, brings our jazz cats a taste of the big time – but we're still waiting for this drama to get into its groove

Spoiler Alert: This blog is for people watching Dancing on the Edge on BBC2. Don't read on if you haven't seen episode two.

Catch-up with Jon Wilde's episode one blog here.

It says a lot about the second episode of Dancing on the Edge that the most gripping thing about it was the long-range teaser that kicked the whole thing off: go-getting music hack Stanley telling bandleader Louis that they need to get him out of the country pronto. It was the only moment of urgency in an episode that left me wondering how Stephen Poliakoff is going to stretch his tale out to five instalments.

Certainly there was an awful lot of stretching in episode two. The hour stretched out on »

Watch: Trailer For Chiwetel Ejiofor's Jazz Age BBC Miniseries 'Dancing On The Edge'

29 January 2013 3:27 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Chiwetel Ejiofor has been turning in great performances since Steven Spielberg spotted him and cast him in “Amistad” back in 1996, but it wasn’t until almost a decade later he started to make himself known to wider audiences in the likes of “Children of Men,” “Inside Man,” and, of course, “Serenity.” We’re particularly looking forward to a couple of his upcoming movies, “Half of a Yellow Sun” and Steve McQueen’s “Twelve Years a Slave,” but he’s also got an interesting looking project coming soon to the small screen. In late 2011 he starred in the BAFTA-winning BBC miniseries “The Shadow Line,” and he’ll next be seen in another BBC miniseries, “Dancing on the Edge,” which is directed by the acclaimed British playwright and television dramatist Stephen Poliakoff (“Glorious 39”). The five-part dramedy will follow a group of black jazz...
