When The Wind Blows - 2014 Blu-ray releaseAppearing on November 11th, 2014, is the limited, special release of When The Wind Blows on Blu-ray. The 1986 adaptation of Raymond Briggs' chilling graphic novel to the screen by Jimmy Murakami features drawn animation and stop-motion sequences to tell the tale of Jim and Hilda (voiced by the perfect pairing of Sir John Mills and Dame Peggy Ashcroft), an elderly couple caught up in nuclear war. With a touching trust in officialdom, they do their best to follow the (at best ineffectual) official UK government booklet which was issued in the 1980s, Protect and Survive. Comedy and horror effortlessly combine in a film once seen, never forgotten.

The desperate situation they find themselves in is perfectly accompanied by the score - chiefly composed by Roger Waters, especially for this film. For many, it is amongst Roger's best solo material. Other performers include David Bowie, who does the title music.

Never previously released on Blu-ray, this special edition - limited to just 3,000, exclusively through - will undoubtedly prove popular. Not least, the film, presented in 1080p with a DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, is accompanied by a raft of features, including a new documentary and particularly key for Waters fans, an isolated music and effects track. The Blu-ray is not region coded, so should work fine in players worldwide.

With the limited nature of this release, we urge those interested to get their pre-orders in now to secure their copy. To reiterate, it is exclusively available from [Our thanks to Eskimospy for help with this story.]
