Malcolm Bradury's TV adaptation of Tom Sharpe's comic novel Porterhouse Blue. Based on the novel by Tom Sharpe, this satirical British miniseries surveys the machinations of upper-crust academics at the elite Cambridge College. Drama ensues when reform-minded Sir Evans (Ian Richardson) is appointed master. Determined to modernize this old-fashioned institution, Evans finds himself at odds with its recalcitrant staff, chief among them the devious Skullion (David Jason). It's a battle of wills, and no one is spared as this dark comedy lampoons privileged pupils, professors, and politicians alike.

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", 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.
