THE COMPLETE HUMPHREY JENNINGS COLLECTION VOLUME 3: A DIARY FOR TIMOTHY (DVD & Blu-ray)Films by Humphrey Jennings Widely celebrated as one of Britain's greatest filmmakers, Humphrey Jennings is a true poet of the cinema whose work was the inspiration for Danny Boyle's 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony. This, the last of three comprehensive volumes which bring together his entire directorial output, features the films he made between 1944 and 1951, and charts his transition from wartime to peacetime filmmaking. Featuring A Diary for Timothy, Jennings much-loved collaboration with E M Forster, The Dim Little Island, an muted but affecting celebration of Britishness, and Family Portrait, the esoteric Festival of Britain film, this essential collection confirms Jennings as a master of the cinematic art. Volume three includes the following films: The True Story of Lili Marlene (1944) The Eighty Days (1944) Myra Hess (1945) A Diary for Timothy (1946) A Defeated People (1946) The Cumberland Story (1947) The Dim Little Island (1948) Family Portrait (1950) Special features Presented in High Definition and Standard Definition V.1 (1944, 8 mins): alternative cut of The Eighty Days The Good Life ( Graham Wallace, 1951, 18 mins ): the film Jennings was working on at his death Illustrated booklet featuring film notes, credits and biographies by John Wyver, Patrick Russell, Kevin Jackson, Scott Anthony and others UK | 1944-1951 |black & white, and colour | English language, with optional hard-of-hearing subtitles | 218 minutes | Original aspect ratio 1.33:1 | Region 0 DVD/Region free Blu-ray) Disc 1: BD50 | 1080p | 24fps | PCM mono 2.0 audio (48k/24-bit) Disc2: DVD9 | PAL | Dolby Digital mono 2.0 audio (320kbps) Review 'Jennings was a visionary whose best films were touched with oddness and poetry' --Graham Fuller
