Shoah | DVD | (19/02/2007)
from £24.99 | Saving you £25.00 (50.00%) | RRP
Shoah is Claude Lanzmann's landmark documentary meditation on the Holocaust. Assembled from footage shot by the filmmaker during the 1970s and 1980s it investigates the genocide at the level of experience: the geographical layout of the camps and the ghettos; the daily routines of imprisonment; the inexorable trauma of humiliation punishment extermination; and the fascinating insights of those who experienced these events first hand. Absent from the film is any imagery shot at the time the Holocaust occurred. There is only Lanzmann and his crew filming in private spaces and now-dormant zones of eradication to extract testimony from a series of survivors witnesses and oppressors alike. Through his relentless questioning (aided on occasion by hidden camera) Lanzmann is able to coax out material of unparalleled emotional truth that constitutes both precious oral history and withering indictment. Shoah (the title is a common designation for the Holocaust and a Hebrew word that can be translated as 'Catastrophe' or 'Annihilation') was the first of Lanzmann's films to analyse the effects of the death camps on individual lives and the world at large. It represents an aesthetic achievement in line with Alain Resnais's Night and Fog combining inquiry rage and mourning to create a monumental portrait of shame and grief. Shoah locates within the present a direct line to the horrors of the past and is widely regarded as one of the most powerful films of all time.
Blood Upon the Snow - Russia's War | DVD | (15/10/2012)
from £21.99 | Saving you £6.84 (22.80%) | RRP
This is the incredibly powerful story of the Stalin years. It is based on rarely seen archival footage, contemporary diaries and documents and personal memoirs, as well as interviews with relatives and those people who survived the Gulag labour camps and World War II. It follows the events from Stalin's rise to power, his association with Hitler and the Soviet involvement in the Second World War right through to his death. First regarded as a visionary, it soon became apparent that Stalin was a capricious, ruthless tyrant who would arrange for the ‘removal’ of anyone he thought was opposing him. For nearly 30 years, he maintained power without challenge by manipulating his people through propaganda, state sponsored lies and terror. In this tremendously moving and at times graphic, harrowing and shocking documentary, we witness the suffering and sacrifices of the people of the Soviet Union and discover what led to the death of millions of Soviet citizens during the Great Patriotic War.

Holly is a deliciously eccentric New York City playgirl determined to marry a Brazilian millionaire. George Peppard plays her nextdoor neighbour a writer who is 'sponsored' by wealthy Patricia Neal. Guessing who's the right man for Holly is easy. Seeing just how that romance blossoms is one of the enduring delights of this classic set to Henry Mancini's Oscar-winning score and the Oscar-winning Mancini/Johnny Mercer song 'Moon River'. Roman Holiday (Dir. William Wyler 1953): Audrey Hepburn won an Oscar for her portrayal of a modern-day princess rebelling against her royal obligations who explores Rome on her own. She meets Gregory Peck an American newspaperman who seeking an exclusive story pretends ignorance of her true identity. But his plan falters as they rapidly fall in love... Paris When It Sizzles (Dir. Richard Quine 1964): A veteran Hollywood screenwriter goes to Paris to write the screenplay of his career--in three days. Lacking fresh ideas he turns to his gamine secretary to provide fuel for his imagination and they come up with various scenarios for his screenplay called 'The Girl Who Stole The Eiffel Tower'. William Holden and Audrey Hepburn heat up the main characters with terrific supporting help from the likes of Frank Sinatra Noel Coward Tony Curtis Fred Astaire Marlene Dietrich and the glorious city of Paris. Sabrina (Dir. Billy Wilder 1954): Humphrey Bogart William Holden and Audrey Hepburn star in a Cinderella story directed by renowned filmmaker Billy Wilder. Bogie and Holden are the mega-rich Larrabee brothers of Long Island. Bogie's all work Holden's all playboy. But when Sabrina daughter of the family's chauffeur returns from Paris all grown up and glamorous the stage is set for some family fireworks as the brothers fall under the spell of Hepburn's delightful charms. Funny Face (Dir. Stanley Donen 1957): Paris the City of Light shines even brighter when Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire team up for the only time and bring their luminous starpower to this exquisite musical featuring songs by George and Ira Gershwin. This dazzling romp -- filmed on location in Paris -- garnered four Academy Award nominations. In the role of bookstore clerk transformed into a modeling sensation Hepburn showcases singing and dancing skills she had honed on the London stage performing How Long Has This Been Going On? a Basal Metabolism dance in a cool-cat bistro and more. Astaire as the fashion photographer who discovers her conjures up his inimitable magic for sequences that include his Let's Kiss And Make Up matador diversion a heavenly dance with Hepburn to He Loves And She Loves and again with Hepburn the title-tune enchantment I Love Your Funny Face. Now and forever so do we.

With a comprehensive hour long programme on each year of the 1940s this 3 disc - set package provides the definitive insight into the decade that took us from World War through Victory to an all new age of austerity in a newly divided world. At the beginning of the 1940s - the world woke up to the expansionist ambitions of Nazi Germany as Hitler's forces made steady progress invading Finland Denmark Norway Belgium Holland and France. Japan Yugoslavia Greece and Bulgaria bolstered the Axis Forces. By 1942 a state of global war ensued; the US had entered the conflict following the Japanese attack on the US Navy at Pearl Harbour and the war spread to campaigns in the Pacific Burma North Africa Russia and the Atlantic. 1943 was a tuning point for the Allies with the bloody siege of Stalingrad ending success repelling the German forces in Tunisia and the surrender of Italy. D-Day in June 1944 saw the Normandy landings of Allied invasion troops - the world's biggest combined land sea and air operation. As the Allied force made progress to Berlin and eventual Victory In Europe the grim realities of the concentration camps were revealed to a disgusted world.

Using rare news footage and interviews from the incredible British Path archive this extraordinary series provides a unique year by year look at what made the news of yesteryear. With a comprehensive hour long programme on each year of the 1950s this 3 disc - set package provides the definitive insight into the decade that took us from post-war austerity to consumer boom. The morale-boosting Festival of Britain in 1951 was held to encourage commerce in challenging times - rationing was still in effect and the post-war baby boom come to fruition in the birth of 'teenage' culture. This sizeable younger population wasmaking its new found spending power felt with the rise of 'Rock n Roll' and the emergence of coffee shops on street corners. Although the decade began with a Labour government with Clement Attlee as Prime Minister the Conservatives would dominate the decade with Winston Churchill Anthony Eden and Howard Macmillan all taking residence at 10 Downing Street. It was a challenging time for the politicians as they dealt with the Suez Canal Crisis the Soviet invasion of Hungary further H-Bomb testing and closer to home the horrific Harrow and Wealdstone train disaster. The whole country was also united in grief with the passing of KingGeorge VI and then with pride as the masses witnessed the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. It was also a period marked by scientific and technological progress; the first Sputnik Satellite the last ride on the London Tram the Polio vaccination and much to the dislike of motorists everywhere the introduction of the parking meter. This collection also features some of the more light hearted events of the decade such as Bing Crosby playing golf in Scotland Bolton Wanderers beating Manchester United to lift the FA Cup and the 100th Varsity Boat Race. Relive all these events and many many more with A Year To Remember: The 1950s.
