Channel 4's TV drama THE PRICE: The Complete Series is released on DVD, 16th April 2018, by Simply Media.
Peter Barkworth (Where Eagles Dare) and Harriet Walter (The Sense Of An Ending) star in Peter Ransley's twisting BAFTA-nominated drama, set at the height of The Troubles.
Geoffrey Carr (Barkworth), a major player in the emerging computer industry, is newly married to the impetuous Frances (Walter), a much younger woman with a wilful daughter from a previous marriage. He'll go to any lengths to make her happy, and stretches his finances to buy a crumbling Georgian estate in County Wicklow where Frances spent part of her childhood. Aside from commitments on the new house, Geoffrey's continuing control of the company depends on an uncertain research deal with a visiting Japanese consortium.
Frank Crossan (Derek Thompson) is an Irish Republican hitman on the run from British authorities in the North, and from his own commanders. Seeking refuge with old flame Kate (Aingeal Grehan), he hatches a plan to kidnap a wealthy Brit for a hefty ransom to fund a major arms deal.
The two worlds collide when Frances and daughter Clare are brutally snatched and removed to a bleak hideaway. Geoffrey's immediate impulse is to cave in to the kidnappers demands but nothing is straightforward when a personal crisis plays out against the forces of political intrigue, high finance, and the full glare of the media.
First broadcast in 1985, the series is written by Peter Ransley (Fingersmith, Fallen Angel), and directed by Peter Smith (No Surrender, A Perfect Spy), with a haunting soundtrack by David Earl and the RTE Concert Orchestra. In a rare acting role, a pre-teen Susanna Reid (Good Morning Britain) plays Clare, and the cast also includes Simon Jones (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Brideshead Revisited), and Adrian Dunbar (The Crying Game, Line Of Duty).
