Since the summer of 1955, the ITV network has entertained the nation with some of the most memorable programming ever created for British television. This collection celebrates those six decades with an outstanding, specially selected collection of superb dramas, hilarious comedies and thought-provoking documentaries – some of which haven’t been seen since their original transmission.
With each disc themed to provide an “evening’s entertainment”, this dip into the archives provides a trip down Memory Lane as well as a timely reminder of some of the best television of the last 60 years.
Since its launch in 1997, Network has released over 1,000 programmes on DVD and Blu-ray from the ITV library.
