Presented together on DVD for the very first time, these two gems of swinging-sixties cinema are both sought-after classics that have been largely unavailable to own until now. Two very different sides of an evocative era, these rarely seen slices of British film history are both essential viewing. Les Bicyclettes de Belsize An enchanting musical love story about a young man who falls for a model after seeing her picture and then takes to the streets on his bicycle to find her... Directed by Douglas Hickox (Sitting Target), this cult favourite is a long-lost classic of the swinging sixties. An evocative, dreamlike trip though leafy London, Les Bicyclettes de Belsize stars sixties bombshell Judy Huxtable (the one-time wife of comedian Peter Cook) and boasts an outstanding soundtrack. Shot in North London in 1968, the film perfectly captures the fashions, verve and innocence of the time. An absolute gem. The London Nobody Knows Based on Geoffrey Fletcher’s book, this captivating documentary exposes the real London of the swinging sixties. Turning its back on familiar sights, the film explores the hidden details of a crumbling metropolis. With James Mason as our Guide, we are led on an tour of the weird and wonderful pockets of London from abandoned music-halls to egg breaking factories. The London Nobody Knows paints a fascinating picture of London as a city where there is joy and wonder to be found at every turn. A compelling portrait of a bygone era, The London Nobody Knows is a unique piece of film history. Unmissable.
