Death of a Gentleman | DVD | (26/10/2015)
from £5.39 | Saving you £12.60 (70.00%) | RRP
What would you do if something you loved was dying? What if the sport that created your heroes and the back-story to your life, was in danger of disappearing? Test cricket is a game that has no right to exist in the 21st century. The five day game is the purest form of the second most popular sport on earth, representative of tradition, history and identity. Yet as the short attention spans of a new generation dictate immediacy, the Test game is in danger of being swamped by its shorter, sexier, more financially viable cousin ?Twenty20'. Money corrupts the best of intentions, and as cricket's administrators rub their hands with glee, the Gentleman's game is now a product left at the back of the shelf. Two cricket fans who became journalists, Old Etonian Sam Collins and larrikin Aussie Jarrod Kimber, from opposite ends of the social and geographic scale but united by their love of Test cricket, join forces to try to help save it. They embark on a journey across the cricketing empire to find the answer to the question ?Who really cares about Test cricket?' They talk to the players, ex-players, broadcasters, journalists, administrators and fans. They venture, often uninvited, into boardrooms, offices, hotel rooms and even the home of cricket itself, Lord's, looking for answers as to who is responsible, and what are they doing to save their game. Along the way they befriend journeyman cricketer Eddie Cowan as he prepares to make his Test debut for Australia in front of 70,000 people at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Eddie is the guy doing what they always dreamed of. His infectious love for Test cricket helps convince them that Test cricket is still relevant, that it is worth saving. They travel around Australia with Eddie and experience his ups and downs on tour, watch the Australia vs. India Test series, journey to India to take a closer look at the IPL, bug famous cricket people in the UK and look at open corruption in Sri Lanka as they try to piece together a picture for the future of Test cricket. They run into ogres, well-meaning automatons and the feverishly self- obsessed. Everyone passes the buck. As Eddie's future teeters in the balance, so too does the future of Test cricket. As a story of deceit, incompetence and greed unfolds; one man is living his dream, while two others are trying to keep theirs from dying. Death of a Gentleman is not a nostalgic look back at a sport that professionals played against amateurs while stopping for tea. It's a modern morality tale about a future where sport and money collide, India as a super-power, the curse of the professional administrator and set in a world where fans are better connected to (but more disconnected from) their heroes than ever before. More than that, it is a final call; not just to cricket fans and administrators, but everyone in a rapidly changing world. If you care about something that's in danger, then don't pass the buck, do something about it. Before it's too late.

Fairytale allegorical 1. Collective ignorance of an obvious fact or deception despite undeniable evidence. World-famous British comedian and activist Russell Brand joins forces with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom on a polemical documentary about the financial crisis and gross inequality we currently face.&nbsp; Starting with the genesis of today&rsquo;s economic policies with the arrival of Milton Friedman&rsquo;s school of thought in Reagan&rsquo;s leadership and Thatcher&rsquo;s UK the film explores how these policies have come to dominate the western world. The rich have got richer; where a CEO of a major British company used to earn 10 times the average wage of his workers now they earn 200 times. &nbsp;According to Oxfam the richest 80 people in the world own as much as the poorest 3.5 billion.&nbsp; It would now take 300 years for the average cleaner cleaning the offices of his senior boss to earn the same salary taken home by the same boss last year.&nbsp; Milton Friedman once said that every crisis was an opportunity.&nbsp; The financial crisis of 2008 should have been a chance to reform the system for the benefit of everyone.&nbsp; But instead austerity for everyone throughout Britain and Europe was the price to be paid for supporting the financial sector with &pound;131 billion spent by UK tax payers to keep the financial system afloat while $30 trillion in support and subsidies went to Wall Street in the US. Using a mixture of documentary interviews archive footage and comedy Russell Brand takes us from his hometown Grays in Essex to the heart of London &lsquo;City&rsquo; and on to the Big Apple. This daring film will shake up the world by revealing the bewildering truth about how the people at the bottom are paying for the luxuries of those at the top. Things can change&hellip;things do change.

Marley is the definitive film about one of the most loved international icons of the 20th Century, Bob Marley. His music and message of love and redemption are known throughout the world and his story has finally been brought to life in this definitive work. Acclaimed director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, State of Play, Life in a Day) joined forces with the Marley family to direct the ultimate authorised documentary film on the life, legacy and global impact of one of the most influential musicians in history. Marley marks the first time ever that Bob's family has authorised the use of their own private Bob Marley archives.Bob Marley's universal appeal, impact on music history and his role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. His music and message transcend culture, language and creed and resonate around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive. Only a handful of musicians have ever achieved such an impact and Bob Marley, though his life was far too short, stands strongly among them.I think what's great about the film is though there have been a lot of things done on Bob, I think this one will give people a more emotional connection to Bob's life as a man - not just a reggae legend or a mythical figure, but his life as a man. - Ziggy Marley
