We are having a bit of a typical British Summertime weather at the moment; I guess we should expect it especially being Wimbledon fortnight!

Despite the weather we have a cracking Summer catalogue going out in the post over the next few weeks full of hot new DVD releases and Exclusive titles that you can only from us at Acorn. To highlight just a few we have Collection 2 of hugely popular Dixon of Dock Green, in stock now ready to be dispatched, the ITV1 new series Murder on the Home Front, a great series exploring the origins of forensic detective work during WWII.
