Out of this World sci-fi

Space: 1999 BritBox

The nostalgic collection also includes Patrick MacNee and Diana Rigg in The Avengers, Peter Cushing’s Doctor Who and the Daleks, David Bowie’s The Man Who Fell To Earth and every season of Terry Nation’s acclaimed sci-fi series Survivors.

Exclusive new series coming to BritBox

BritBox isn’t just the home of the biggest collection of British box sets, it’s also going to be creating original series.

The BritBox originals include The Beast Must Die, which stars Cush Jumbo, Nathaniel Parker, Billy Howle and Jared Harris in a story about a grieving mother who infiltrates the life of the man she believes killed her son.

Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) is adapting is his novel Crime into a six-part series, which will star Dougray Scott as Detective Inspector Ray Lennox who is investigating the disappearance of a school girl while battling personal demons,

An adaptation of Anthony Horowitz bestselling novel Magpie Murders is also being made, which has been billed as an “extraordinary and distinctive drama” unlike any crime show that’s gone before.

Anthony Horowitz said: "Magpie Murders is my most successful novel and it wasn’t easy to adapt. But I think the result is a completely original drama that will delight and beguile audiences in equal measure."

The channel is also releasing original documentaries such as Secrets of the Krays and from July 15th will be the home of The Wedding Of The Century, a lovingly restored film from Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles’ 1981 ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

British Movietone shot the wedding on 35mm film, a format that is capable of being upgraded to today’s 4k resolution, and the footage has now been lovingly restored to a much clearer version than was ever thought possible. A highlight of this new version is the ability to see every detail down to the creases in Diana’s iconic gown as she steps out of the royal carriage.
