As the band grows in popularity and starts to mix with the upper classes, the intoxicating combination of music, money and parties pull the characters into a glamorous but perilous world. Soon the band begins to feel immune from the prejudice hovering beneath the surface of society, but the sudden death of one of the band members creates a catastrophic turn in their fortunes. They immediately find themselves confronted by betrayal, and their privileged position is quickly torn away as they begin to discover who their friends really are.

Like Someone In Love, named after Ella Fitzgerald's jazz standard, is a droll, elegant and playful film preoccupied with identities mistaken and assumed, laced with references to the films of Yasujiro Ozu. Akiko, a pretty and slightly distant sociology student works nights as a high- class escort. Instead of studying for her exams and meeting her grandmother, she reluctantly goes to the house of her latest client, retired sociology professor Takashi. The next morning, she allows him to give her a ride to university, crossing paths with her volatile boyfriend, Noriaki (Ryo Kase). The latter assume that the kind old man is Akiko's grandfather, thus allowing an odd role-playing routine to begin, until, perhaps, the hoax is discovered. After Certified Copy and Ten, Like Someone In Love offers, with pristine images and long takes off the streets of Tokyo at night, a new facet of Kiarostami's study of human relations and unforeseeable encounters.

Edward Woodward and Jane Wymark star in a light-hearted drama tracing the unlikely romance between two seemingly mismatched runaways. The bass player is George Mangham, a world-weary, out-of-work jazz musician. The blonde is Terry, a beautiful, wealthy and decidedly determined young woman who fancies herself as a singer. He is twice her age and penniless - but she is in love with him. Having whisked Terry from under the nose of her bridegroom on her wedding day, Mangham flees with her in his battered Mini, and the unconventional couple begin their uphill struggle for acceptance amid see-sawing fortunes and the interventions of Terry's furious father, Charlie. Released for the first time, this set brings together the ITV Playhouse pilot of 1977 - scripted by Roy Clarke (Last of the Summer Wine) - and the highly popular three-part series screened the following year, co-written by Ian Lindsay and Phil Redmond. With a combined cast featuring Ronald Fraser, George Sewell, Sam Kydd, Jeremy Sinden, Alfie Bass, Stanley Lebor and Barry Linehan, The Bass Player and the Blonde is directed by Dennis Vance (Special Branch) and features music specially composed by Jack Parnell.
