Creator of some of the most outstanding television plays made in the last fifty years, Nigel Kneale (Quartermass, Nineteen Eighty-Four, The Year Of The Sex Olympics) creates, in Beasts, an anthology of six plays designed to showcase the breadth of his fertile imagination. Laden with suspense, drama and a thick vein of black humour, each play was a variation on the theme of civilised man in conflict with the primal, animal side of existence. This malevolent and menacing thread runs through all six terrifying stories, which feature outstanding performances from actors such as Martin Shaw, Simon MacCorkindale, Glyn Houston, Michael Sheard and Pauline Quirke. Not seen since its original transmission and never previously released in any format, Beasts will appeal to all lovers of quality drama and horror.
