“It Couldn’t Happen Here” re-released

The BFI today release the 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, which is now available at the link below.

“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.
