Network Spy Sale

Network, the awesome UK DVD company responsible for the Region 2 releases of so many classic spy series and ITC adventure shows, is currently running an all-spy sale called their "Shadow State Sale." It's a great opportunity to pick up some fantastic serious spy shows, like Callan (review here), The Sandbaggers and Danger Man, at reasonable prices! Network's Callan releases include the reunion telefilm "Wet Job" and what survives of the original monochrome series (review here), neither of which have been released in Region 1 to date, so American spy fans with all-region players should take note. Another notable Edward Woodward title included in the sale is the 80s miniseries Codename: Kyril (review here), which had been out of print for a while and is well worth seeking out! Further great titles on sale include the excellent Mr. Palfrey of Westminster (which contains bonus material not found on the Region 1 release reviewed here), The Quiller MemorandumThe Ipcress File (also with bonus material not found in Region 1), and the Sixties anthology series Espionage, among others. I'm not sure how long The Shadow State Sale runs for.
