Saturday Morning Pictures Vol.2: Cup Fever (1965), Hide and Seek (1972) DVD9
Here we have Volume 2 of Network's Saturday Morning Pictures series that feature movies produced by the Children's Film Foundation (later renamed the Children’s Film And Television Foundation). This volume is a corker featuring an ace footie film called Cup Fever that stars a very young and non-sexualised (for a change) Susan George with Bernard Cribbins and David Lodge along with some guest appearances from some top-class British football/soccer legends that include George Best, Nobby Stiles and Denis Law. The second movie on the disc is a slightly gritty crime caper that stars future Spandau Ballet legend Gary Kemp along with Roy Dotrice and the ever-watchable Liz Fraser.

Cup Fever (1965)
Barton United's hopes of winning the Manchester Junior Football League Cup receive a setback when their practice ground is taken over for use as a car park. Luckily, Manchester United help them with their training, and enable them to win the Cup – and a new pitch.

Hide and Seek (1972)
Keith absconds from an Approved School in the hope that his father will take him to Canada. But Keith’s father seems more interested in robbing a bank.
