HBO SESSIONS: VS THRONECAST

Thronecast presenter Geoff Lloyd is joined by Sky 1 and Sky Atlantic's Senior Content and Commissioning Producer for New Media Ben Boyer, lords and masters of Westeros.org Elio and Linda and journalist Georgie Hobbs. Geoff also receives a sword fighting lesson from Syrio Forel himself - actor Miltos Yerolemou. Meanwhile, Clothes on Film editor Chris Laverty dissects the show's immaculate clothes, from Cersei's Southern style to the leather jerkins and fur-topped capes of the north.

The HBO Sessions is a quarterly talk show featuring fans dissecting the finest original programming from HBO.


GAME OF THRONES is out on DVD and Blu-ray now

Featuring a stellar cast of British acting talent including Sean Bean, Emilia Clarke and Mark Addy, GAME OF THRONES is a HBO original series based on the international best-selling books by George R. R. Martin.

Combining a mythical world with a generation of family feuds, bloody war, treachery, murder, lies and lust, GAME OF THRONES has defined a world so unique, complex and compelling that any preconceived notions of the genre fall away. It has created an 'accessible fantasy' epic for the small screen, which became the most watched show* on Sky Atlantic this year.
The noble households are continuing a dark and ancient battle for control of The Iron Throne in a medieval kingdom in turmoil. Some look to the battlefield, some magic, others their powers of manipulation and cunning in a bid to rule the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Yet behind the Northern Wall lies a bigger threat and Winter is coming...
Created by BAFTA® award nominee David Benioff (The Kite Runner) and nominated for 13 Emmy® Awards, the DVD and Blu-ray editions are packed with bonus features including a Making of Game of Thrones featurette, Character Profiles, Inside the Night's Watch and seven episode commentaries.
