Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected (DVD, Region B)

Type: New DVD

Sinister and with a touch of the macabre, Tales of the Unexpected holds, at its heart, a core of black humour with a twist in every tale.

An acclaimed writer of dark fiction for both children and adults, Roald Dahl is best known to television audiences for the long-running series Tales of the Unexpected. Adapting work from Dahl himself, Ruth Rendell and many other celebrated writers, its iconic title sequence and memorable theme tune made it an immediately recognisable, must-watch programme throughout its near-ten-year run on television.

Attracting a consistently high calibre of guest stars – including Oscar winners Sir John Gielgud and Jose Ferrer, Joan Collins, Sir John Mills, Peter Bowles, Derek Jacobi, Sian Phillips, Denholm Elliott, Joss Ackland and Brian Blessed – this ten-disc set contains over fifty of the best episodes from this outstanding series.
