Death of a Son - DVD (Region 0)

All products on the Atomic Movies website are marked with the relevant region coding

Blu-Ray: All titles are Region B (Aust/NZ/UK) or Region All.

What is Region Coding?

A security system introduced to DVD at the request of Hollywood's major studios to ensure that DVDs released and sold in one region will not play on DVD machines in other regions. Movie distributors therefore maintain control over release dates of their films, as well as enabling discs to be produced that conform to different censorship laws, language and subtitle requirements. When a DVD disc is manufactured, a region code is applied at the authoring stage such that the final disc will play only on those players distributed in the designated world region.

There are 6 regions throughout the world:

Region 1 - Canada, United States and its Territories 
Region 2 - Japan, Europe, South Africa and the Middle East
Region 3 - Southeast Asia and East Asia
Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central and South America 
Region 5 - Indian Subcontinent, Former Soviet Union and Africa 
Region 6 - China

Many newer DVD players are already set to All Region and can play DVDs from any region. It is also possible to unlock many players and we may be able to help if you email with the make & model of your player.

Some studios are now releasing their titles as All Region or Dual Region, this information is given on each listing, these titles will play in Australian dvd players however may not play in Game consoles outside the country of the original issue.

If you have any doubt of about the suitability of the title you are intending to purchase please contact us for further information as refunds or exchanges are not available for incorrect items once the plastic seal has been breached.

In 1986 Pauline Williams, a Luton housewife became the first person in Britain ever to bring a successful private prosecution for manslaughter. The story began in 1982 when John Williams, Pauline and Ray s 19 year old son, died from an overdose of the drug Palfium. In spite of the inquest jury s verdict of unlawful killing, the Director of Public Prosecutions ruled that charges were not to be brought against the drug dealer who injected John with the fatal overdose. Both Pauline and Ray found this ruling impossible to accept, and so began a remarkable individual battle. Death of a Son is the powerful and moving story of what happened to the Williams family; of how Pauline took on the full weight of the British medical and legal establishment and won. For after three years of campaigning and studying, Pauline finally proved to the DPP that there was a case of manslaughter to answer. In her portrayal of Pauline, Lynn Redgrave gave one of her most powerful and moving performances ever, for which viewers voted her BBC TV Actress of the Year, 1989.
