Britannia Hospital

The concluding instalment in Lindsay Anderson's Mick Travis trilogy, following If.... and O Lucky Man!, Britannia Hospital finds the filmmaker casting a sourly satirical eye over Thatcher's Britain.

With a phenomenal cast at his disposal - everyone from Alan Bates (Georgy Girl) and Joan Plowright (Time Without Pity) to Robin Askwith (Confessions Of A Window Cleaner) and Mark Hamill (Star Wars) to Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) reprising the role of Travis - Anderson trains his sights on royalty, trade unions, the media, and scientific research in typically uncompromising fashion.

This is the world Blu-ray premiere release of the film, newly remastered in high definition and presented with its original mono audio soundtrack.

First released: Monday 29th June 2020
