    As seen on Masterpiece Theatre! Twenty years after this six-part British miniseries won an International Emmy®, a newly remastered version brings it to life more vividly than ever before. This riveting thriller also inspired Steven Soderbergh's Oscar®-winning film. Shot on location in Pakistan, Hamburg, and London, Traffik lays bare the international drug trade by tracing three intersecting lives: Jack, a British government minister who finds the scourge of heroin striking too close to home; Helen, a woman who embarks on a daring survival strategy after her husband's arrest; and Fazal, a Pakistani peasant who works for a menacing drug lord. Starring Bill Paterson (Little Dorrit, Smiley's People), Lindsay Duncan (Rome, Under the Tuscan Sun), and Julia Ormond (Legends of the Fall) in her extraordinary film debut.
Acorn Media proudly presents the September 29th 2-disc DVD release of Traffik - Remastered 20th Anniversary Edition. This collection of 6 episodes runs approx. 305 min., plus bonus material such as interviews with writer Simon Moore and producer Brian Eastman, an extended U.K. broadcast version of episode 6, a photo gallery, production notes, and cast filmographies. Presented in full screen, and English audio and subtitles. Cost is #39.99 SRP in the USA and CA$52.99 SRP in Canada. You can pre-order it from Amazon at a discount, of course. Stay tuned for packaging!
