The celebrated chef Rick Stein undertakes a journey laced with history, literature and stunning imagery, through the hidden parts of Spain. Rick Stein has visited Spain since he was a young boy. According to Rick, no one cooks fish with more respect or grills meat better. Now, he travels the length and breadth of the country in an old campervan, going off the beaten track to discover the ‘Duende’ - the authentic soul of Spanish cooking. Rick’s journey begins in Galicia – famous for pilgrims, rain, fog, fresh seafood, empanadas and more rain. He enjoys a cider festival at Gijon; samples the famous ‘fabada’ – a hearty bean stew with sausage, belly pork and black pudding; and explores the making of Cabrales cheese in secret caves. Rick learns all about ‘pinxos’, the tapas of the north, while in San Sebastian, then it’s on to Navarra and its most famous town, Pamplona – known for its bull running, Ernest Hemingway - and the Catalonian town of Lleida, which is crazy about snails! Continuing his journey through the spectacular countryside, Rick also eats some of the best seafood in the country, including prawns from Palamos, best simply tossed in a hot pan with sea salt – sweet and succulent! After a spectacular paella festival in Valencia where the iconic dish was first created, the campervan moves towards the centre of the country, the land of Don Quixote in Castilla-La Mancha, where Rick visits the vineyard of Campo de Criptana and joins the local garlic farmers for the best garlic soup in the world. He finishes his travels in Andalucia’s fabulous city of Seville where the old world met the new world and changed the way we ate forever.

from £6.46 | Saving you £9.99 (50.00%) | RRP
In Pole to Pole, Michael Palin follows the success of his original global trek, Around the World in 80 Days, with a race against time to get from the North Pole to the South Pole. Palin balks at nothing, tries just about anything and always finds time for a spot of tea. En route Palin stars in a crayfish documentary in Novgorod, attends a baby-rolling ceremony at a Cypriot wedding, gets stuck in a Nile traffic jam, buys chicken in Wadi Halfa, goes camel shopping in Khartoum and is prescribed tree bark by a Mpulugu witch doctor to get rid of his evil shadow. Even when things go according to plan, Palin travels in unusual ways--by dogsled on Spitsbergen, barge down the Dnieper, train roof across the Nubian Desert, van through the Sudan, hot-air balloon over Kenya and down Lake Tanganyika on the "African Queen". With curiosity, courage and his standard aplomb, Palin plunges himself into the local cultures, beating himself with birch branches in a Finnish sauna and wallowing in mud in an Odessa sanatorium. It all makes for an armchair traveller's delight. --Tara Chace

Ypres-The Immortal Salient Part 1 | DVD | (21/04/2011)
from £11.45 | Saving you £3.54 (23.60%) | RRP
This film is presented by historian and film-maker Ed Skelding who takes us on a chronological journey through the first two years of fighting in the salient. He is joined by renowned military historian and author Nigel Cave who will join Ed at some key locations where decisive actions took place. Nigel is well known for his contributions to the Battleground Europe series of guide books published by Pen & Sword. This film will feature locations associated with the first two battles of Ypres, including Hooge Chateau, Langemark and Gheluvelt where the first encounters between the opposing armies took place. The story of the 1914 Christmas truce will be explained by Nigel and the nearby locations where the artist Bruce Bairnsfather drew the cartoons that were to establish the character of Old Bill. Nigel is also interviewed at the notorious location of Hill 60, where he reads from his Battleground Europe book, and explains why this was such a dreaded place, even for the Salient. The second part of this film then switches to the Second Battle of Ypres in April 1915. This became notorious for the first real gas attack of the war and was to change the attitude of the British soldiers towards the Germans. Gone forever was any notion of chivalry. Nigel is interviewed at Vancouver Corner - where an impressive memorial to the Canadians who died defending the line despite suffering many casualties from the gas – now stands. He also takes us to the nearby Totemuhle or Death Windmill to explain where the gas attack came from and the resulting lost opportunity for the Germans. This film will also tell the story of the Royal Army Medical Corps and the doctors who did so much often in the most desperate circumstances. Nigel is interviewed at Essex Farm, forever to be associated and immortalized by the poem of the Canadian Colonel John McCrae – In Flanders Fields.
