  • Grey Gardens [Blu-ray] [1976] [Region Free] Grey Gardens | Blu Ray | (18/04/2016) from £17.75  |  Saving you £10.14 (36.20%)  |  RRP £27.99

    Meet Big and Little Edie Beale: mother and daughter, high-society dropouts, and reclusive cousins of Jackie Onassis. The two manage to thrive together amid the decay and disorder of their East Hampton, New York mansion, making for an eerily ramshackle echo of the American Camelot. An impossibly intimate portrait, this 1976 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, codirected by Ellen Hovde and Muffie Meyer, quickly became a cult classic and established Little Edie as a fashion icon and philosopher queen. This special edition also features the 2006 follow-up to the film, The Beales of Grey Gardens, constructed from hours of extra footage in the filmmakers' vaults.

    Samuele is 12 years old and lives on an island in the middle of the sea. He goes to school, loves shooting his slingshot and going hunting.

    Tornado: Absolutely Chuffed: From Steam to Dream is a brand new extended in-depth film about the amazing story of the 50th Peppercorn Class A1 steam locomotive No. 60163 Tornado. The original double award nominated BBC television programme 'Absolutely Chuffed: The Men Who Built A Steam Engine' was fantastic profile for Tornado and and the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust when it first aired.

From the original inspirational idea to the running of the Royal train this programme delves deeper than ever before into the fascinating story of a steaming success with frank interviews and fly on the wall filming. It was a project that started in 1990 when a group of dedicated people came together with a vision of what seemed at the time an unachievable task. They were united by an extraordinary ambition to construct a brand new steam engine and to bring back to life the Peppercorn class A1 Pacific steam engine. After 18 years of incredible effort and teamwork and at the cost of 3 million their dream became a reality when locomotive No. 60163 Tornado moved under her own power for the first time. Culminating with spectacular footage of the engine in action 'Tornado: Absolutely Chuffed: From Dream to Steam' is the tale of a the project that made the world sit up and watch.

  • Jay Z - Fade To Black [2004] Jay Z - Fade To Black | DVD | (05/09/2005) from £3.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (75.00%)  |  RRP £15.99

    Fade to Black is a document of Jay-Z’s self-proclaimed final concert; a grand affair that took place before a sold-out crowd at New York’s Madison Square Garden in November 2003. (But anyone who follows celebrity news knows that Jay-Z was out of retirement and back performing at the Garden just a year later.) Fade to Black is a legitimately powerful record of a truly historic event in the annals of rap. Muttering offhand narration with typical bored, streetwise affect, Jay hails the concert as a momentous occasion for being the first time a hip-hop show was allowed to headline at the Garden. It’s unlikely that the full impact of the live performances will hit home to viewers unfamiliar with Jay-Z and his Roc-A-Fella Records stable of artists. Another frustration is trying to identify the array of visitors who trade raps on Jay’s stage. Included in the star-studded lineup are Missy Elliott, Foxy Brown, Pharell, Ghostface Killah, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, and R. Kelly. One unmistakable figure--and we do mean figure--is Jay’s squeeze Beyonce, who raises the temperature and the roof with her skimpy outfit, flowing hair, soulful yowl, and sexed-up dance routine that leaves her boyfriend and the whole of Madison Square Garden slack-jawed with animal desire. Twenty cameras captured the event, and some of the most powerful sequences are sweeping moves across the swirling, blissed-out masses as they lip sync along in perfect unison with Jay-Z’s complex, profane, quick-witted raps. Less effective are intermittent cutaway segments that show the artist in various studio settings working up beats and rhymes. These amateurish home video breaks may give some insight to Jay’s perfectionism and dedication to his craft, but they detract from the visceral power of the beautifully executed performance footage. --Ted Fry, Amazon.com

  • The Art of War [DVD] The Art of War | DVD | (12/03/2012) from £2.68  |  Saving you £2.44 (24.40%)  |  RRP £9.99

    Sun Tzu's Legendary Victory Manual Comes to Life.All warfare is based on deception. Therefore, when capable of attacking, feign incapacity; when active in moving troops, feign inactivity. When near the enemy, make it seem that you are far away; when far away, make it seem that you are near. - Sun TzuSun Tzu was the Nostradamus of warfare and his book Art of War, written 2,400 years ago is still the ultimate how-to guide for winning at war.

  • Ancient Worlds [DVD] Ancient Worlds | DVD | (06/12/2010) from £8.29  |  Saving you £16.70 (66.80%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Ancient Worlds is a six-part odyssey from the first cities of Mesopotamia to the Christianisation of the Roman Empire with archaeologist and historian Richard Miles at the helm. The series tells the story of what Richard argues is mankind's greatest achievement - civilisation. The series offers an epic sweep of history against a panorama of stunning locations and bold propositions about the origins of human society. In the 21st century we might fondly imagine that it is humankind's natural state to live together in communities that extend beyond blood ties. As Ancient Worlds sets out to show however no such assumptions were made by the first clan chiefs who decided to form communities in southern Iraq in 4500 BC. There is nothing natural about the city and its founders understood that its very survival relied on compromise ruthlessness sacrifice and toil. In the West we have consigned the term 'civilisation' to the museum display case. Embarrassed by its chauvinistic and elitist connotations we have increasingly taken refuge in more politically correct and soft-focused terms such as 'culture' to explain our origins. This series seeks to rescue civilisation from its enforced retirement and celebrate such a hard-fought invention.
