A&e Tours 'House Of Eliott'


The recent release of "House of Eliott," a six-volume, 12-episode collection of the hit television series about fashion, romance and family fortunes set in the Roaring '20s of England, highlights the offerings available from Arts & Entertainment Home Video.

There have been so many recent additions that the A&E Home Video catalogue is hardly ever up to date.

The abundance of offerings for fans of A&E's blue-ribbon shows underscores the fact that the list has multiplied since the cable network began responding to extensive viewer requests for videos of its shows less than four years ago.

To order by phone and/or request a copy of the latest catalogue, call 1-800-423-1212. Most retail chains and major catalogue houses also carry A&E videos.

Boxed gift sets, such as "House of Eliott" ($130), created by Jean Marsh and Eileen Atkins, offer a library of major television delights.

Among the other notable series available for purchase:

-- "The Rector's Wife" (4 volumes, $60)

-- "The American Revolution" (6, $100)

-- "Upstairs, Downstairs" (7, $150)

-- "A Year in Provence" (4, $80)

-- "Miss Marple" (3, 60)

Single cassettes also are available. Just out is "Pope John Paul II" (50 min., $20), the latest release in the popular "Biography" series. The 76 "Biographies" on video include profiles of U.S. presidents, members of British royalty, movie stars and notables such as Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Jimmy Hoffa, John Gotti, Al Capone and Eliot Ness.

Another recent A&E release was "Enigma of the Dead Sea Scrolls," (50 mins., $25), examining recent breakthrough discoveries.

The History Channel, A&E's new sister network, ran "The American Revolution" and will be adding more video titles also.
