A film that had its world premiere in Corby is set to be released on the digital market after the man behind the movie struck a distribution deal for the Only Fools and Horses-based documentary travelogue.

Boycie In Belgrade follows the unlikely adventures of Corby entrepreneur Lazar Vukovic and sitcom actor John Challis as they travel to the Serbian capital - home to thousands of adoring fans.

The film was produced and directed by the British-Serb, whose chance encounter with Mr Challis in Barton Seagrave put the wheels in motion for what would become Boycie In Belgrade and a Balkan adventure.

Mr Vukovic said: "With this match made in Peckham, this time next year we could be millionaires. British sitcom is massive in Serbia. We took a jovial journey to Belgrade to investigate the popularity of one of Britain’s best-loved sitcoms.

"We take you on a tour of the city, as we uncover why Only Fools and Horses is so popular in Serbia. From a royal palace, to a brandy distillery, via the obligatory car dealership, and even a turn in a Serbian TV sitcom, John got the 'cushty' red carpet treatment from admirers and fanatics alike.

"This entertaining road-trip with the sitcom favourite is a must watch for any fan of Only Fools and Horses - you’d be a plonker to miss it."

Boycie In Belgrade is released through the Trinity Creative Partnership digitally and on DVD on Monday, June 14.
