Staff Reporter | On 22, Jun 2020Reading time: 5 mins
While people still navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic and work out when it’s safe to go outdoors, Netflix UK’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows remains a vital resource for keeping entertained. But before you start bingeing through its new originals, don’t miss out on catching up with some other gems before their rights expire and they head to another service, such as Disney+ or BritBox, or just disappear into the digital ether.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
The Raid – 23rd June
The best thing to come out of Wales since Roald Dahl. Except he never fought anyone with a chair.
The Purge – 23rd June
What if, for 12 hours, any and all crime was legal? That’s the starting point for James DeMonaco’s horror, as one wealthy family’s hostage situation proves to be the starting point for a whole franchise and political and action-packed offerings – including a TV spin-off.
Mary Shelley – 24th June
Saudi director Haifaa al-Mansour takes the helm for this entertaining, provocative biopic of the Frankenstein author.

Morgan Neville’s documentary about Mr Rogers is a sincere celebration of a TV figure who helped shape the minds of a whole generation of children.
