In black and white, Oliver Pike's pioneering film of 1908 depicting birdlife and fowling; 1920's footage of Robello and Mann on tourism and village life; the final stages before the 1930 evacuation filmed by John Ritchie. In colour sequences from the 1957 film taken as a record when the National Trust for Scotland assumed ownership, with "Operation Hardrock" when the army moved in; restoration of the village by NTS working parties; the Royal Family's visit in 1971; the return in 1980 of a few native St Kildans 50 years after they left. (Commentary by Magnus Magnusson) "Wildlife of St Kilda" Filmed over 25 years from 1957. The competitive world of over a million seabirds - gannets, fulmars, puffins, kittewakes, gulls, and by night Manx Shearwaters and the rare Leach's Petrel. Oystercatchers repel the ravens, Great Skuas attack human visitors and fulmars and the unique St Kilda wrens defend their territories. Other island races are the fieldmouse and the famous brown Soay sheep. The sea provides the food (150 tons a day in summer for seabirds), the cliffs and Atlantic pastures a colourful home and a rare haven of peace.
Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake | DVD | (20/07/1998)
from £9.80 | Saving you £8.19 (45.50%) | RRP
This Swan Lake was the unexpected popular hit of 1996, when radical choreographer Matthew Bourne took Tchaikovsky's traditional ballet by the scruff of the neck and reworked it with a myriad of modern influences and themes to astonishing effect. Seldom have the dark psychological riptides at the heart of so many classical ballets been so brilliantly exposed. The Prince (Scott Ambler) is a wretched and dissolute young man dominated by his mother, the Joan Collins-like Queen (Fiona Ambler). Shades of Tennessee Williams, indeed. Von Rothbart becomes a press secretary, more sinister éminence grise than hissable villain. Most startling of all, The Swan (Adam Cooper) is a muscular, emphatically masculine male. Bourne has stressed the universality of his interpretation, which proved such a success for his Adventures in Motion Pictures dance company. And indeed this is never an overtly "gay" Swan Lake, although the electricity of the pas de deux at the height of Act 2 delivers a palpably homoerotic charge. Its universal threads--as Bourne suggests, the need to be held and understood is common to us all--are synthesised in the utterly moving conclusion as the Swan cradles the lifeless Prince and raises him to a better place. Swan Lake becomes a human, rather than simply romantic, tragedy. On the DVD: Swan Lake is presented in full screen 4:3 video format and this version would certainly have benefited from widescreen to show off the dazzling court and night club scenes as well as the lake and the impact of the all-male swan corps de ballet. But the lush Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound serves the rich interpretation of Tchaikovsky's score from The New London Orchestra to handkerchief-wringing effect. Extras include menu-driven resumes and a synopsis. --Piers Ford

Haunted Double Feature (Ghostwatch/The Stone Tape) | DVD | (21/10/2013)
from £7.69 | Saving you £12.30 (61.50%) | RRP
Two BBC classic films brought to you in one box set! GhostwatchThe BBC broadcast Ghostwatch on the 31st of October 1992. It seemed to be a live broadcast which was a cross between Crimewatch and the movie Poltergeist. Although pure fiction the masterly combination of great scripting intuitive direction and perfect casting made the supernatural pastiche appear frighteningly real. Despite being part of BBC Drama's Screen One series the presence of Michael Parkinson convinced thousands of people it was real. The drama caused uproar and was banned from repeat transmission for over a decade. Its legacy lives on cited as an inspiration for The Blair Witch Project and Derren Brown's The S&eacute;ance Ghostwatch is regarded as a classic of the genre. The Stone TapeNigel Kneal's classic ghost story The Stone Tape first broadcast by the BBC in 1972 represents his best work outside of the Quatermas series. A team of scientists eager to discover a new recording medium take over a brooding gothic mansion. On moving in however they find one key room unfinished and the builders refusing to work there. Claims of strange noises and feelings of unease are dismissed. However the scientists soon discover that the renovation work has disturbed something behind the stone walls something ancient and malevolent.

Coppelia - Delibes | DVD | (23/10/2000)
from £10.57 | Saving you £7.42 (41.20%) | RRP
Scintillating" is the word which comes to mind to describe this performance of Delibes' Coppélia. Both the story and music (here presented in 2.0 Dolby stereo only, which is a shame) are among the most robust in the tradition, and here Oleg Vinogradov's choreography gives us the most extrovert depiction of an already extrovert subject. Highlights abound, but Irina Shapchits's Swanilda and Petr Rusanov's Coppelius are particularly delightful. The former is a boisterous, tomboyish interpretation, providing an additional dimension of contrast with the soullessness of Coppelius' dolls, while the latter eschews the bumbling eccentricity sometimes imposed on the role and instead depicts the dollmaker as an almost wraith-like, Mephistophelian figure. The disc carries one multi-angle option plus a DVD-ROM article by Harlow Robinson which includes a Web link to the label's home page, which is just as well given the drab, parsimonious nature of the accompanying black-and-white booklet. However, just buy this disc for the spectacular performance--you'll be glad you did. --Roger Thomas

La Fille Mal Gardee | DVD | (23/02/1998)
from £13.99 | Saving you £0.07 (0.40%) | RRP
La Fille Mal Gardée ("The Unguarded Maiden"), perhaps the best-known work of composer Ferdinand Hérold, is here presented in a Royal Ballet production freely adapted, arranged and conducted by John Lanchbery. The unquestioned centre of attention is Royal Ballet superstar Lesley Collier who plays Lise, the beautiful farm girl whom her widowed mother (Brian Shaw) plans to marry to the eligible Alain (Garry Grant) despite Lise's love for young farmer Colas (Michael Coleman). This is a colourful pastoral romp with pause for tender and lyrical moments and plentiful opportunities for Collier to enchant her many admirers. Royal Ballet principal conductor Lanchbery--himself composer of the well-loved Tales of Beatrix Potter (1971)--brings all his flair for this sort of carefree entertainment to play and the result is delightful. Filmed for BBC television at Covent Garden in January 1981, the witty, energetic and romantic choreography is by Frederick Ashton (his dancing chickens are hilarious, as is Shaw's "clog dance" in Act Two) and the stage design by Osbert Lancaster, whose legacy adds charm to a much more recent BBC Royal Ballet film of Coppélia (2000). Hérold's score is filled with playfulness, melody and laughter, making this a very superior pantomime. --Gary S. Dalkin On the DVD: Presented at the original 4:3 TV ratio, the focus is soft throughout and details lacking in long shots are reduced to a formless blur. The image looks washed-out, with colours missing any sparkle or depth. The live stereo sound is much better, being detailed, full, and free of the hiss one might expect from a TV soundtrack of this vintage. The disc offers one page of credits, a three-page synopsis and a web link. The drab black and white booklet repeats this information in more detail in various languages, but offers nothing on the performers, composer or conductor. --Gary S. Dalkin
