Penguin - Spy in the Huddle | DVD | (08/04/2013)
from £10.98 | Saving you £7.01 (39.00%) | RRP
From the makers of Earth flight and Polar Bear - Spy on the Ice, the spy cameras are back with this latest BBC series. This time they travel to Antarctica and the southern oceans, where they focus on the most charismatic and popular bird on Earth - the penguin. Spy cameras cleverly disguised as life size penguins infiltrate the colonies to capture their emotional and often amusing lives. The emperor penguin has the most incredible life story of any bird. Just as Polar Bear - Spy on the Ice changed the way we look at an iconic subject, the spy cameras give the emperor penguin's amazing story a fresh perspective. The Humboldt penguin lives in the hot desert regions of South America and its problems have more to do with heat than cold. The rock hopper is one of the more comical penguins nesting on cliffs in the Falklands islands, braving incredibly rough oceans to reach the shore. The trials and tribulations of these other penguins crosscut the narrative of the emperor penguin, highlighting the differences at the same stage in their lives. When the emperors huddle together to protect themselves against minus 60degree temperatures, Humboldt penguins are tolerating plus 40degrees in the driest desert on Earth! While emperors are negotiating huge snowdrifts, rock hoppers are trying to jump up vertical cliffs. 50 different spy cams reveal the secret lives of nature's most devoted parents.

Their unbelievable adventure together starts with a battle between the Sea Shepherd and shark poachers in Guatemala resulting in pirate boat rammings gunboat chases mafia espionage corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges forcing them to flee for their lives. Through it all Stewart discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey and how despite surviving the earth's history of mass extinctions they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed. Stewart's remarkable journey of courage and determination changes from a mission to save the world's sharks into a fight for his life and that of humankind.

British Isles: A Natural History | DVD | (29/11/2004)
from £5.40 | Saving you £16.51 (66.10%) | RRP
The BBC's latest lavish natural history series, The British Isles: A Natural History stirred a minor controversy when first aired because its presenter, the ever-affable Alan Titchmarsh, is better known as a gardener (and writer of saucy novels), not an expert on mineralogy, plate tectonics, or prehistoric flora and fauna. Until this programme the presumption had been that a multi-part flagship BBC documentary would be written and presented by an authoritative figure, David Attenborough or Simon Schama for example. For better or worse Titchmarsh has broken the mould. In fact, once past the glossily superficial opening chapter "3 Billion Years in the Making" (essentially a highlights programme of what is to come), Titchmarsh turns out to be an excellent host, addressing the audience in his familiar chatty way and cleverly exploiting his horticultural roots, noting for example how evidence of major geological changes can be found in the most humble plant, wildflower or weed. And unlike his more academic predecessors, he also uses his TV charisma to the full, finding lighthearted ways of imparting otherwise dry information: sampling malt whiskies to explain how water permeates through different types of rock; scoffing platefuls of clotted cream with jam and scones to show how desert conditions millions of years ago gave Devon its fertile soil; or even getting made up as a Neanderthal and strolling down Oxford Street. It's all far more cosy than Attenborough. The director of this eight-part series has clearly been watching Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, as he never misses an opportunity for sweeping helicopter shots of snowy mountain peaks, rugged coastlines or glacial valleys. Combined with some neat computer graphics, the result makes ideal consumption for Sunday evening TV: easy on the eye and none too taxing on the brain, but informative enough to banish any fears of dumbing-down. --Mark Walker
