News of a TV series you might have seen trailed on TV already, news of a related shirt giveaway from Brutus and an extended trailer of This Is England '86.

First up, the TV series, which screens from 7th September 2010 and is a follow-on from the original movie, with all the characters looking for love, a laugh, a job and a future. According to director Shane Meadows: 'Not only did I want to take the story of the gang broader and deeper, I also saw in the experiences of the young in 1986 many resonances to now recession, lack of jobs, sense of the world at a turning point. Whereas the film told part of the story, the TV serial will tell the rest.'
