    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 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.

Lying just off the coast of Africa Madagascar is a land of misty mountains tropical rainforests and weird spiny desert scrub. Here the wildlife has evolved in splendid isolation to become bizarre and totally unique. The great mystery of Madagascar is why it has such a unique and varied flora and fauna - a diversity of life that makes even the famed Galapagos Islands pale by comparison. What is it that makes Madagascar so different from the rest of the world? This series finds clues from Madagascar's extraordinary animals plants and landscape to discover how the island's remarkable past has produced its intriguing present like the Tsingy - a series of jagged limestone peaks that have cut off animals in isolated gorges allowing them to evolve into their own unique species. On the east side of the island rugged mountains rise dramatically from the palm fringed Indian Ocean. Travelling from the highest mountains where trees are few and it's cold enough for frost through the lush cloaking rainforests down to the tropical coast discovering the ring-tailed lemurs the jewelled geckos and the giant predatory wasps. So what is it that has made this narrow eastern strip in particular so rich in life? South of Madagascar is home to its most extraordinary landscapes - from forests of 'upside down' trees to alien 'spiny deserts'. In stark contrast to the east this is a place that's bone-dry for most of the year yet it's extraordinarily rich in wildlife. Here only the toughest and most opportunistic survive and some of the strategies to survive here are ingenious. This Blu-ray follows the long dry season of this landscape to see how life copes as it waits for the brief rains.

  • Crimson Wing [DVD] [2009] Crimson Wing | DVD | (15/03/2010) from £4.15  |  Saving you £13.84 (76.90%)  |  RRP £17.99

    Harking back to the nature films that regularly used to inhabit video rental shops, Crimson Wing sees Disney revisiting a successful strand of its past. Under the Disney Nature banner, the documentary focuses on Lake Natron in northern Tanzania. There, directors Matthew Aeberhard and Leander Ward point their cameras at a real sight of natural beauty: flamingos. Lots and lots of flamingos. The film traces the life cycle of flamingos in a measured, absorbing, non-flashy manner, and that helps make Crimson Wing such a fascinating watch. It?s terrifically shot, which helps, but over the course of its gentle running time. And it follows the creatures through life, death and the day-to-day challenges that they face. It?s not the kind of film that tends to pack multiplexes out, but Crimson Wing is a diligently made nature documentary. It?s very accessible, boasting both solid narration and a very good musical score. And it hopefully paves the way for Disney to consider more films of this ilk in the years ahead. Granted, they don?t help shift merchandise, but Crimson Wing has the power to enchant as well as the majority of family movies on the DVD shelves. Warmly recommended. --Jon Foster
