A first class ticket to ride on the railroad of opportunity knocks with THE GRAVY TRAIN!

We board the Gravy Train in Brussels, nerve centre of the European Community, where our naive and idealistic hero, Hans Dorfmann (Christoph Waltz) arrives to become assistant to Michael Spearpoint (Ian Richardson) the hard-nosed, insular Director of Information and Culture. Spearpoint plans to exploit the newly-liberated nations of Eastern Europe, and Dorfmann could well be the secret of his success.

Meanwhile, the idealistic young German is courted by a number of prominent bureaucrats and entrepreneurs and seduced by the mysterious and glamorous Nadine. Is he being set up? If so, for what?

Used and abused by all parties, he clings to his principles and fundamental belief in the basic good of humankind. But can he ride THE GRAVY TRAIN without getting tarnished?


Take your seat for the hilarious return journey when THE GRAVY TRAIN GOES EAST!

"Challenges the general view that the European Community is no laughing matter" The Times

Post-glasnost jewel of the Eastern European crown, the Balkan state of Slaka is a tasty treat on THE GRAVY TRAIN. Newly-liberated after years of Communist control, the little nation wants to embrace the European Community and share its bountiful fruits of capitalism and the free market.

Animosity between the East and West is now a thing of the past, so why is Slaka's entry into the E.C. so hotly-contested enthusiastically encouraged by the Deputy President of the EC and violently opposed by the British Government?

The Balkan state's economic and political disarray makes E.C. entry unlikely, but perhaps only one man can perform the required economic miracle in Salaka the naïve, bungling European dogsbody Hans Dorfmann (Christop Waltz).

Confounded and manipulated by all parties, he finds himself out in the cold and expelled from Slaka but doggedly in pursuit of the state's missing fortune!

Filmed on location in England, Austria, Germany, Hungary and Belgium, this 4 DVD set includes all 8 parts of Malcolm Bradbury's THE GRAVY TRAIN and THE GRAVY TRAIN GOES EAST starring acclaimed actor Sir Ian Richardson (House of Cards), with Christoph Waltz, Alexei Sayle (The Comic Strip Presents), Francesca Annis (Reckless), Jeremy Child, Roger Lloyd-Pack (Only Fools And Horses), Maggie Steed (Pie In The Sky) and Judy Parfitt (Yes Minister).
