  • More Than Honey [DVD] More Than Honey | DVD | (11/11/2013) from £7.29  |  Saving you £5.70 (43.90%)  |  RRP £12.99

    Einstein once said: 'If bees ever die out mankind will have only four years left to live'. In the past five years billions of honeybees simply vanished for reasons still obscure. If the bees keep dying it will have drastic effects for humans as well: more than one third of our food production depends on pollination by honeybees and their life and death are linked to ours. Life without the bee is unthinkable. But between pesticides antibiotics and monoculture the queens and their workers are losing their power. More Than Honey a new documentary by the Swiss filmmaker Marcus Imhoof is looking into the fascinating world of bees showing small family beekeepers (including the beekeeper of Erste Foundation beehive Heidrun Singer) and industrialized honey farms. More Than Honey is a film about the relationship between mankind and honeybees about nature and about our future. Honeybees show us that stability is just as unhealthy as unlimited growth that crises and disasters are triggering evolution. Special Features: Interview with Director Markus Imhoof Deleted Scenes Making of Featurette Original Theatrical Trailer UK Theatrical Trailer Two versions of the film (one in the original language and one featuring a narration by John Hurt) Booklet (featuring an interview with Markus Imhoof and the Friends of the Earth '20 things you need to know about bees')

  • Walking with Cavemen [2002] Walking with Cavemen | DVD | (31/03/2003) from £10.00  |  Saving you £6.06 (33.70%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Breaking the mould of previous "Walking with" offerings, the BBC's Walking with Cavemen sees Professor Robert Winston follow in the footsteps of ancient man in a series that traces the history of humanity from bipedal ape-men (Australopithecus Aphaeresis) to the awakening of the human mind's potential with Homo Erectus. Spread over four fascinating half-hour instalments, Wilson presents an accessible and populist, but still suitably anthropological study on how apes became human and the traits that we inherited from our earliest ancestors. Unlike Dinosaurs and Beasts, Cavemen combines CGI with actors to portray the characters in the story of man. Initially this seems to make it far less technically impressive than the earlier programmes--memories of Kubrick's 2001 are inevitable--but fortunately the acting is superb and the viewer soon forgets that these are people in monkey suits. The series also makes use of a special effect called "deep time-lapse", which shows in a matter of dramatic seconds the thousands of years of geological changes that sped up our ancestors' evolution. Wilson himself takes part in the action as if he is a modern-day naturalist following lions across the Serengeti rather than creatures long extinct. This approach makes for a more immediate as well as poignant interpretation of history: the result is an enlightening and moving tribute to the human journey. On the DVD: Walking with Cavemen on disc has production interviews with series producer Peter Georgi, executive producer and director Richard Dale, director of animated extras Ben Palmer and actor David Rubin. There are also location interviews, the best of which is two of the actors in full costume explaining the difficulties involved in eating lunch. There are sequences explaining the creation of the digital effects, and the original score can be accessed as an audio-only option. A fact file for each episode and a picture gallery complete the extras package. --Kristen Bowditch

  • Buck [DVD] Buck | DVD | (11/11/2013) from £6.39  |  Saving you £8.60 (57.40%)  |  RRP £14.99

    Your horse is a mirror to your soul and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes you will.

Buck a richly textured and visually stunning film follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his phenomenally successful approach to horses. A real-life 'horse-whisperer' he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through leadership and sensitivity not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses - and people - with his understanding compassion and respect. In this film the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero Buck is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.
