Historian and author, Simon Sebag Montefiore presents a fascinating series on Jerusalem: the place where God meets man, the shrine of three faiths - Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and the most fought over city in history. Montefiore explains how Jerusalem - established by King David 3,000 years ago was fought for and shaped by Kings and Emperors and how the holiness of the city was intensified by myths and fables, borrowed and refined between religions. He then explores how this peerlessly beautiful city rose from a crumbling ruin after the crusades to become a world centre of Islamic pilgrimage, the object of rivalry between Christian nations, a holy refuge for Jews from all over the world and, ultimately, the site of one of the world's most intractable conflicts.
Strawberry & Chocolate (Fresa Y Chocolate) by Alea | DVD | (23/02/2009)
from £8.99 | Saving you £4.00 (30.80%) | RRP
Groundbreaking and hugely celebrated for numerous reasons Cuba's greatest director Thomas Guiterrez Alea's (Memories Of Underdevlopment) Strawberry And Chocolate (Fresa Y Chocolate) was the first Cuban film ever to receive an Academy Award nomination thanks to its revelatory plot masterful direction and phenomenally crafted performances. Diego a cultivated apolitical sceptical young artist living in Havana initiates a friendship with fiercely communist homophobe David with the intention of seducing him. David knowing this allows the relationship to build so he can spy on a person he sees as aberrant and dangerous to the communist cause. Despite their conflicting sexualities and political ideologies the two slowly build a relationship out of their differences proving that camaraderie and friendship can overcome the most divisive superficialities. An exploration into the seduction of the mind Strawberry And Chocolate shows how politics can shape lives opinions and relationships. Hugely controversial in Cuba even now the film was the first to feature a gay man as the hero while openly criticising the Government and its widespread intolerance. It was this picture that started the dialogue that has only last year allowed Brokeback Mountain to be shown in Havana. Charming nuanced groundbreaking and thought provoking Strawberry And Chocolate is a clear-cut declaration that even in spite of politics love for your fellow man will always triumph if allowed to.

A4 Pacific No 4468 - Mallard '88 | DVD | (09/07/2012)
from £5.89 | Saving you £0.10 (1.70%) | RRP
On July 3rd 1938, a streamlined locomotive of the London north Eastern Railway shot to everlasting fame by breaking the world speed record for steam. The speed achieved that day on Stoke Bank, 126 miles per hour, was never to be equalled by any other steam locomotive. The A4 Pacific No. 4468, named Mallard, was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley for work on high speed passenger trains, a task which she performed admirably until she was withdrawn from service in 1963. This program follows the fully restored Mallard in 1988, the 50th anniversary of her record-breaking run. It starts with the boiler test and a special run for filming in the York-Harrogate-Leeds-York circle during which driver Harry Wilson's efforts in the cab were recorded on the very day he retired. The cameras were in Banbury for the postal run in May but the real celebrations began exactly 50 years from the day of the record. We took a helicopter to record Mallard on the East Coast Main Line and later on the threatened Settle and Carlisle line. Mallard was also captured by the cameras in many other locations and the opening of the National Railway Museum's Archives has allowed us to bring you the full story of this wonderful locomotive.
