  • Hannah Hauxwell - An Extraordinary Life Hannah Hauxwell - An Extraordinary Life | DVD | (04/02/2008) from £7.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (60.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Hannah Hauxwell won the hearts of millions in Britain when she appeared in a Yorkshire television documentary about the plight of farmers in the Dales. Hannah Hauxwell takes you on an incredible journey of a lifetime in three fascinating documentaries: Too long A Winter: Hannah Hauxwell captures the hearts and mind of a nation as she gamely struggles to maintain her farm in the beautiful North Yorkshire dales in the award winning documentary 'Too Long A Winter'. Her battle to survive alone on an isolated farm with no electricity or running water - and in abject poverty - made her the nation's most unlikely celebrity. A Winter Too Many: 16 years have elapsed since Too Long A Winter and a combination of fading health and a series of devastatingly bitter winters culminates in Hannah being heart-wrenchingly driven off her beloved farm. Innocent Abroad: At the ripe old age of 65 Hannah Hauxwell is travelling for the first time. Embarking on the journey of a lifetime Hannah visits the place she once only dreamed of. She retraces the steps of Victorian maiden ladies as her grand tour of Europe commences in Paris and along the way takes in Switzerland Germany Austria and Italy before arriving home in opulent splendour on board the Orient Express.

  • Paris, Texas [Blu-ray] Paris, Texas | Blu Ray | (28/01/2013) from £6.99  |  Saving you £13.00 (65.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Something like a perfect artistic union is achieved in the major components of Paris, Texas: the twang of Ry Cooder's guitar, the lonely light of Robbie Muller's camera, the craggy landscape of Harry Dean Stanton's face. In his greatest role, longtime character actor Stanton plays a man brought back to his old life after wandering in the desert (or somewhere) for four years. He has a 7-year-old son to get to know, and his wife has gone missing. The material is much in the wanderlust spirit of director Wim Wenders, working from a script by Sam Shepard and L.M. Kit Carson. If the long climactic conversation between Stanton and Nastassja Kinski renders the movie uneven and slightly inscrutable, it's hard to think of a more fitting ending--and besides, the achingly empty American spaces stick longer in the memory than the dialogue. Winner of the top prize at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival. --Robert Horton

  • Häxan - Witchcraft Through the Ages [DVD] Häxan - Witchcraft Through the Ages | DVD | (28/01/2013) from £7.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (60.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Since its premiere in 1922 Benjamin Christensen's exploration of the role of superstition in medieval minds has caused outrage and protest from both the general public and religious groups. Dramatizing satanic activities and rituals including the ways in which suspected witches were tortured and killed Haxan is a deliriously imaginative masterpiece. Not until 1941 did the director earn belated fame and respect - proof that this genre-defying 'documentary' was far ahead of its time. In 1968 the film won further praise and a whole new audience when it was re-released with a William Burroughs narration under the title Witchcraft through the Ages.

  • First Position [DVD] First Position | DVD | (27/05/2013) from £6.49  |  Saving you £9.50 (59.40%)  |  RRP £15.99

  • The Nazis - A Warning From History [1997] The Nazis - A Warning From History | DVD | (24/05/2004) from £5.49  |  Saving you £14.50 (72.50%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Combining unseen archive footage and a wealth of interview material with "ordinary" people who witnessed or even participated in Hitler's reign, this eight part 1997 documentary brought fresh light to bear on the rise and fall of The Third Reich. Inevitably, the episode dealing with the Holocaust immobilises the viewer in its harrowing detail and a further blow against that rump of humanity who refuse to believe the genocide ever occurred. Yet of great interest also is the depiction of the nature of Hitler's dictatorship. He was, it seems, not a driven, workaholic ideologue but a lazy man who, having set his ideas in motion was content to let his subordinates do all the administrative work, fighting for his favour. The series also featured interviews with unrepentant Nazis. There's a telling moment in which an interviewer confronts an elderly woman with a letter of complaint to the Nazi authorities about a supposedly "subversive" neighbour, bearing her signature. The letter sent the hapless neighbour to her death. At first the woman denies knowledge of the incident, then, when faced with the evidence, glibly wonders why anyone should still bother about events that occurred so long ago. This series shows us exactly why. --David Stubbs
