Description

Grand Slam is that brilliant BBC Wales play which followed a group of Welsh rugby supporters to Paris, first broadcast on the BBC in the late 1970s, now available on DVD.

"It's an absolute classic" - Roy Noble, BBC Radio Wales & S4C.

"The most popular comedy Wales has ever produced" - Brendon Williams, Wales On Sunday.

Grand Slam is a nostalgic and poignant comedy set around the backdrop of Wales' trip to Paris in 1977, as they bid to beat France and win the grand slam of Rugby Union in the Five Nations championship.

Starring Windsor Davies and Huw Griffith, Gwenlyn Parry and John Hefin's classic film follows the fortunes and misfortunes of one group of Welsh supporters as they travel overseas in support of their team.

In 1977, the Welsh were virtually unbeatable, so confidence was high as the team and its supporters travelled across the English Channel. Mog Jones (Windsor Davies) and Caradog Lloyd Evans (Huw Griffith) are joined by Evans' son (Dewi Morris), boutique owner Maldwyn Novello Pugh (Sion Probert) and a welcoming French hostess (Sharon Morgan) in this delightful and funny tale crammed with memorable characters and humorous dialogue. From the journey by bus and plane to the arrival at the hotel and the obligatory strip club visit, Parry and Hefin's story will amuse and entertain from start to finish.

This is a sporting and cultural masterpiece. A 30th Anniversary Edition DVD that will delight Welsh rugby fans across the country with its witty dialogue and clever characterisation.
