He travels the British Isles to piece together this remarkable story: of how our ancestors emerged from the last ice age as bands of hunter gatherers to forge a society... hamlets farms and international traders. By taking us on this journey we will see the very beginnings of civilization - in art and religion; home and work; status and trade. But most of all it will place our land centre stage in all its glory and reveal its place in the spiritual lives of the people who lived here... a land on the edge of the world. Neil will investigate the big monuments anew... as well as some of the little known ones that hold some of the biggest secrets. And by tapping into the latest scientific detective work and experimental archaeology we will get under the skin of this mysterious world the lives of the people who inhabited it and the tipping points that changed their lives and made ours.

The Royal Wedding In Colour: HRH Princess Elizabeth & Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten | DVD | (18/04/2011)
from £2.95 | Saving you £4.01 (30.90%) | RRP
For the first time ever Demand DVD in association with Celtic Arrow Media releases unseen footage of the Royal Wedding of the then Princess Elizabeth & Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten. Filmed by pioneering Cinematographer Jack Cardiff OBE BSC (Cinematographer - Black Narcissus Red Shoes and latterly The African Queen and Death on the Nile and many others) this amazing film was one of the first to be shot in the then new Technicolor process in the 1940s. It contains never seen before footage in full colour of the processions at Westminster Abbey and afterwards at Buckingham Palace in the summer of 1947. This lost film becomes available now due to the fact that a copy was given by Jack Cardiff to his friend Ralph Pulley who worked at Technicolor after the war it has remained in the Pulley family ownership ever since and its importance was only realized as a conversation took place between Ralph's daughter and Stanley F Mazur a film producer who brings this DVD to Market.
The World At War - Vol. 3 | DVD | (09/10/2000)
from £6.99 | Saving you £16.00 (64.00%) | RRP
When this epic series was first broadcast in 1973 it redefined the gold standard for television documentary; it remains the benchmark by which all factual programming must judge itself. Originally shown as 26 one-hour programmes, The World at War set out to tell the story of the Second World War through the testimony of key participants. The result is a unique and unrepeatable event, since many of the eyewitnesses captured on film did not have long left to live. Each hour-long programme is carefully structured to focus on a key theme or campaign, from the rise of Nazi Germany to Hitler's downfall and the onset of the Cold War. There are no academic "talking heads" here to spell out an official version of history; the narration, delivered with wonderful gravitas by Sir Laurence Olivier, is kept to a minimum. The show's great coup was to allow the participants to speak for themselves. Painstaking research in the archives of the Imperial War Museum also unearthed a vast quantity of newsreel footage, including on occasion the cameraman's original raw rushes which present an unvarnished and never-before-seen picture of important events. Carl Davis' portentous main title theme and score underlines the grand scale of the enterprise. The original 26 episodes were supplemented three years later by six special programmes (narrated by Eric Porter), bringing the total running-time to a truly epic 32 hours. Now digitally remastered The World at War looks even more of an impressive achievement on DVD. Available in five volumes, each handsomely packaged double-disc set comes with a detailed menu that places the individual programmes along a chronological timeline. Better yet, chapter access is laid out to allow you to select key speeches or maps or newsreel footage. The World at War was a landmark television event; its DVD incarnation underlines its importance as an historical document. --Mark Walker
