Sparrows Can't Sing - Digitally Restored
Sparrows Can't Sing, directed by Joan Littlewood and starring Barbara Windsor (Carry on Camping) in her BAFTA-nominated role as Maggie, is a 1963 kitchen sink classic filmed in the East End of London.
There's panic in Stepney; from the stalls in the street to the bar of the Red Lion the word goes out: tearaway Charlie Gooding (James Booth) is back from two years at sea, and on the way home to his old stamping ground. The trouble is that Charlie isn't up to date with the news.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
