It Couldn't Happen Here re-released

The BFI has announced it is to release a restored version of Pet Shop Boys’ 1988 feature film, It Couldn’t Happen Here, directed by Jack Bond and starring Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe alongside Joss Ackland and Barbara Windsor. Unavailable worldwide for the last thirty years, the film has been newly remastered by the BFI from a 4K scan, for release as a limited-edition Blu-ray/DVD set on June 15th. The Blu-ray/DVD is available to pre-order now at the link below. 

The re-release will be launched with a special preview screening at BFI Southbank on 3rd April 2020, preceded by an on-stage Q&A with Neil Tennant, Jack Bond and choreographer Arlene Phillips. Tickets will be on sale from the link below as follows:

“It Couldn’t Happen Here” was released in UK cinemas in July 1988 and subsequently on VHS video, but has never had a DVD or Blu-ray release before. As well as a 48- page book containing new writing, the discs will be accompanied by a collection of extras, including a brand-new feature commentary with Jack Bond, co-writer James Dillon and cinematographer Simon Archer.
