  • Walking with Cavemen [2002] Walking with Cavemen | DVD | (31/03/2003) from £9.99  |  Saving you £8.00 (44.50%)  |  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

  • 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

    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.
