This collection features every surviving colour episode of one of the longest running police series on British television – and one of the best-loved. Aired between 1955 and 1976, Dixon of Dock Green starred the popular Jack Warner in the role of Sergeant George Dixon, in a series that set the tone for television police drama and paved the way for all that would follow. Filmed on set and on location around the fast-disappearing dockland community of London’s East End, the character of Dixon, with his friendly and informal ‘Evening all’, offered viewers the kind of policeman you’d be tempted to welcome into your home for a cup of tea – even if you’d just robbed a bank. Featuring episodes filmed between 1973 and 1976, this collection includes the final series, the 22nd, in its entirety, and also features a wide range of specially filmed cast and crew interviews, along with a tribute to the series’ star, Jack Warner. In a modern world of CSI, DNA, and CCTV, much has changed and much remains the same in these still-gripping and utterly compelling episodes of Dixon of Dock Green.

For the rest of the world, the movies are entertainment. For Justine, they're real life. The premise was simple: five kids, just living their lives. There'd be a new movie about them every five years, starting in kindergarten. But no one could have predicted what the cameras would capture. And no one could have predicted that Justine would be the star. Now 16, Justine doesn't feel like a star anymore. In fact, when she hears the crew has gotten the green light to film Five at Sixteen, all she feels is dread. The kids who shared the same table in kindergarten have become teenagers who hardly know one another. And Justine, who was so funny and edgy in the first two movies, feels like a disappointment. But these teens have a bond that goes deeper than what's on film. They've all shared the painful details of their lives with countless viewers. They all know how it feels to have fans as well as friends. So when this latest movie gives them the chance to reunite, Justine and her costars are going to take it. Because sometimes, the only way to see yourself is through someone else's eyes. Smart, fresh, and frequently funny, You Look Different in Real Life is a piercing novel about life in an age where the lines between what's personal and what's public aren't always clear. 1.
