A Tesco employee pushes a stack of trolleys past the entrance to the Tesco Extra superstore on April 20, 2009 in New Malden, Surrey, EnglandHow many times have you been queuing at the supermarket checkout and been tempted by those tactically placed DVDs? Sure, you've never had any inclination to watch The Duchess before but it's right there, go on... just hide it under the Old El Paso Tortilla kit...

Well, with that in mind, the news that Tesco are to branch into straight-to-DVD film production should come as no surprise, especially given that short of arms dealing they've tried everything else. The fact that their adverts also feature more British thespians than your average Harry Potter film means they're not short of industry contacts either.
