Blackfish | DVD | (26/08/2013)
from £6.30 | Saving you £9.69 (60.60%) | RRP
Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8 000-pound orcas or 'killer whales' soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet in our contemporary lore this mighty black-and-white mammal is like a two-faced Janus - beloved as a majestic friendly giant yet infamous for its capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum who - unlike any orca in the wild - has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong? Shocking never-before-seen footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca's extraordinary nature the species' cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

Walking With Beasts - The Complete Series | DVD | (08/04/2002)
from £6.99 | Saving you £18.00 (72.00%) | RRP
Walking With Beasts is an introduction to the animals (predominantly mammals) that roamed the earth from the extinction of the dinosaurs until the rise of early humans. The sequel to the BBC’s acclaimed and highly successful series Walking With Dinosaurs, Beasts also uses a combination of clever special effects and computer-generated imagery to create a realistic world as it may have appeared millions of years ago. As to be expected from any BBC nature programme, the images are visually stunning; the prehistoric animals look impressively lifelike, interacting seamlessly with each other and their environment to create an entire world that could have been photographed only yesterday. Best of all is Episode 2, "Whale Killer", which follows a female Basilosaurus, an enormous ancient predatory whale, as she travels through shallow seas and along coastlines--the underwater images could have just as easily originated in the BBC’s spectacular Blue Planet series. It’s unfortunate, therefore, that Walking With Beasts is let down by its script and the often dubious science therein. Episode 3, "The Land of Giants", begins with an anthropomorphic statement better suited to a Disney film than a scientific documentary, referring to the featured animals as "The good [a herbivore or plant-eating animal], the bad [a carnivore or flesh-eating animal] and the ugly [a giant warthog which is, admittedly, pretty ugly]." Still, Walking With Beasts has a host of little touches and flourishes that add to the feeling of realism (the animals knock over the cameras, pebbles hit the lens), which make this programme a success as a piece of pure entertainment and prehistoric escapism. A companion book and soundtrack CD is also available. --Ted Kord

The Act of Killing | DVD | (25/11/2013)
from £6.39 | Saving you £8.60 (57.40%) | RRP
Anwar Congo and his friends have been dancing their way through musical numbers twisting arms in film noir gangster scenes and galloping across prairies as yodelling cowboys. Their foray into filmmaking is being celebrated in the media and debated on television even though Anwar Congo and his friends are mass murderers. Medan Indonesia. When the government of Indonesia was overthrown by the military in 1965 Anwar and his friends were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie theatre tickets on the black market to death squad leaders. They helped the army kill more than one million alleged communists ethnic Chinese and intellectuals in less than a year. As the executioner for the most notorious death squad in his city Anwar himself killed hundreds of people with his own hands. The Act of Killing is a journey into the memories and imaginations of the perpetrators offering insight into the minds of mass killers. The film is a nightmarish vision of a frighteningly banal culture of impunity in which killers can joke about crimes against humanity on television chat shows and celebrate moral disaster with the ease and grace of a soft shoe dance number.

How Plants Made Us | DVD | (16/04/2012)
from £5.99 | Saving you £19.00 (76.00%) | RRP
We might think humans are the most powerful living thing on Earth, but it's plants that time and again have set the agenda for life. All animals rely on plants for their survival. This is not an accident - they are the most powerful evolutionary force on Earth. Plants enabled amphibians to leave the water, they had a hand in the rise and fall of the dinosaurs, and they ensured the ultimate triumph of insects, mammals, birds and even us - all for their own benefit. Because plants have only ever had one goal - the total domination of the planet. It is a story of ruthless ingenuity, seduction and deception; of unimaginable power and ambition. An epic tale, How to Grow a Planet offers a stunning new perspective on Earth history.
