Welcome to the 1st Take website, which gives you an unbeatable selection of new and hard-to-find DVDs – not only the perfect way to treat yourself, but also ideal gifts throughout the year!

Since we founded 1st Take in 1993, we have become one of the leading producers of Special Interest films in Britain. Our speciality is making films which celebrate the glorious heritage of the West Country, and we have made over a hundred documentaries during this time. From delightful portraits of towns, cities and counties to a fascinating range of films on Steam Railways, Aviation, Transport and Maritime & Military, we are certain there will be something for you!

In addition, we have worked with a wide range of like-minded producers all over Britain to offer you a fantastic choice of DVDs, which you just can’t find on the high street these days.

When you spend £35 or more you get FREE delivery (within the UK) and a £5 voucher, which you can redeem against your next purchase of £25 or more (eg. £25 order reduced to £20). 

Please also take a close look at our range of other services, including our fantastic Home Movies Transfer Service, Graduation coverage and filming of Corporate and Sports events.

We look forward to helping you in the near future.

With very best wishes
