Victoria Wood Collection
Victoria Wood is unquestionably Britain's best-loved female comic, winning the hearts of audiences with her brilliant character monologues, comic songs and observational comedy as well as producing hilarious and often poignant dramas. Working regularly with the same group of acclaimed actors - including Julie Walters, Celia Imrie, Duncan Preston and Susie Blake - she has built up an unrivalled body of work.
This extensive collection of BBC titles contains some of her finest programmes, from her BBC breakthrough Victoria Wood As Seen On TV, which included the infamous Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let's Do It) and Acorn Antiques (also presented here on one DVD) to the one-off 50 minute show Victoria Wood: Live In Your Own Home.
The collection showcases her comic script writing in the six playlets of Victoria Wood Presents, focusing on the various annoyances of modern life - from health farms to video dating - and the feature length drama Pat And Margaret in which she and Julie Walters play very different sisters, reunited after 27 years apart.
It also includes the documentary series Victoria's Empire in which Victoria Wood undertakes a fascinating quest for the legacy of Queen Victoria, visiting places around the world that bear their name, from Fort Victoria in Ghana to Victoria, Nova Scotia.

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.
