What are the films in Prime Minister David Cameron's dvd collection?

The White House flickr page has post a photograph of Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron in the Downing Street flat. The Guardian found the kitchen the most interesting aspect but if you look to the top left in this large size picture, we can see a blurry shot of the PM's dvd collection.

I think I can see 24, Marie Antoinette and Armageddon, the proper Star Wars trilogy, Inspector Morse and the first season of Desperate Housewives. Family Guy. The Bourne trilogy. Scream. Is that Captain Corelli's Mandolin on the bottom shelf? It's fascinating.

Can anyone identify any of the others? Just for fun.

Brideshead Revisited

Towards the bottom there is a big box containing what looks like Brideshead Revisited (like this). Interesting given his own conflicted relationship with Oxford University (he went there and is a a stereotypical Oxford product, but criticises the university in the press, and has forced devastating cuts on the university system at large).

Band of Brothers is the large green box a few to the left of Brideshead Revisited.

The bottom DVD shelf, right hand side is mostly children's stuff. I can see a few Thomas DVDs, possibly some Tom & Jerry, and what looks pretty much like my own kids' DVD shelf when I'm not wearing my glasses.

I would guess that whatever's on these shelves is a carefully curated selection chosen to project the right image. Anything remotely controversial will most likely be squirrelled away elsewhere.

Third shelf down, third one in looks like Scream... that can't be right, can it? (Insert own 'cuts' joke here)

Season 1 and 3 of the Wire to the left of 24?

Also, he owns the Flavour Thesaurus.

What fun! Squinting my eyes, I think I can see Cloverfield on the second row, second from the end. Further left on the same row I think I can see True Lies, Goodfellas and a big brown several disc special edition of The Two Towers. On the shelf below I can see a Michel McIntyre DVD,

There's a discussion about the contents of the bookshelf taking place right now over at the Guardian.
