Since the summer of 1955, the ITV network has entertained the nation with some of the most memorable programming ever created for British television. This collection celebrates those six decades with an outstanding, specially selected collection of superb dramas, hilarious comedies and thought-provoking documentaries – some of which haven't been seen since their original transmission.

With each disc themed to provide an "evening's entertainment", this dip into the archives provides a trip down Memory Lane as well as a timely reminder of some of the best television of the last sixty years.

A mixture of both classics and rarities (including some programmes thought lost forever), this set contains previously unreleased episodes of CrossroadsRainbowTiswasCoronation StreetWorld in ActionThe Bill and Whicker's World – together with some exceptionally rare items from the Associated Rediffusion archive: No Hiding PlaceMystery BagCrane and Our Man at St. Mark's.

So spoil yourself – settle down for a great night in and join us for a journey through the decades!
