Crimson Wing | DVD | (15/03/2010)
from £4.15 | Saving you £13.84 (76.90%) | RRP
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

Royal Navy - 3 DVD & Memorabilia | DVD | (14/10/2013)
from £8.05 | Saving you £16.94 (67.80%) | RRP
THE KING&rsquo;S SHIPS 1500 - 1599 The story begins with the creation of a Royal Navy under orders of King Henry VIII with ships such as GREAT HARRY and the MARY ROSE and continues through the daring exploits of Sir Francis Drake&rsquo;s GOLDEN HINDE and the revolutionary innovations of John Hawkins&rsquo; race-built Galleons. Finally the climatic showdown with Spain&rsquo;s Invincible Armada in 1588 laid the groundwork for Britannia's Rule of the Seas in the years to come. WOODEN WALLS 1600 - 1805 The 17th century saw Britain&rsquo;s war efforts aided by Samuel Pepys&rsquo; codification of naval tactics in &ldquo;The Fighting Instructions&rdquo; which transformed naval battles from uncontrollable melees into linear chess games on water. A little-known Scottish landlubber named John Clerk further stimulated naval tactics and when Admiral Horatio Nelson took the helm of HMS VICTORY at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 Britain&rsquo;s mastery of the waves was re-established. THE SUN NEVER SETS 1806 &ndash; PRESENT Wooden Walls were soon replaced by iron and steel. When the super-ship DREADNOUGHT was launched in 1906 it sparked a naval arms race with Germany that culminated with the gigantic showdown at Jutland during WWI. After the loss of HMS Hood Churchill&rsquo;s rallying cry &ldquo;Sink The Bismarck!&rdquo; and the successful pursuit of the GRAF SPEE turned the tide of WWII. The Falklands War in 1982 once again demonstrated the continuing resolve and effectiveness of the Royal navy.

How Plants Made Us | DVD | (16/04/2012)
from £6.99 | Saving you £18.00 (72.00%) | RRP
We might think humans are the most powerful living thing on Earth, but it's plants that time and again have set the agenda for life. All animals rely on plants for their survival. This is not an accident - they are the most powerful evolutionary force on Earth. Plants enabled amphibians to leave the water, they had a hand in the rise and fall of the dinosaurs, and they ensured the ultimate triumph of insects, mammals, birds and even us - all for their own benefit. Because plants have only ever had one goal - the total domination of the planet. It is a story of ruthless ingenuity, seduction and deception; of unimaginable power and ambition. An epic tale, How to Grow a Planet offers a stunning new perspective on Earth history.
Wildest Africa | DVD | (22/02/2010)
from £8.85 | Saving you £1.14 (11.40%) | RRP
Their daily ritual is aimed at just one result: survival. At the start of the 20th century the major species roamed most of Africa with the exception of the Sahara and the jungles. One hundred years on their territory has contracted dramatically. It's in this context - the daily law of the jungle - fight for survival for individual creatures and the new fight for survival for entire species - that this documentary documents the majesty of Africa's superb wildlife. The programme begins with a spectacle of awesome proportions the annual migration of the wildebeest showing the attacks it comes under from crocodiles and lions. The daily ritual of lions is documented from mating and hunting to attacks they come under from baboons. We follow a group of baby elephants frolicking in the waters of Botswana's Okavango Delta and speaking a complex language with which they can communicate over great distances. Other animals featured include: a graceful and agile leopard with superb shots of drinking hunting and eating; two black jackals and their meal under attack from hyenas; the aggressive hippopotamus; the cape buffalo the rare aardwolf and serval cat; and the cheetah surging up to 112 kilometres an hour to kill a Thomson's Gazelle. The documentary concludes on a positive note with a captive breeding programme for cheetahs showing tactics that can save still more of Africa's superb creatures from disappearing forever. Greg Grainger is an award-winning producer and presenter of topical travel documentaries and wildlife programmes to remote and exotic locations. Greg's programmes are seen around the world from Grainger's World screened daily on Europe's Travel Channel to Tour Deluxe on the USA Travel Channel as well as Channel 7 Australia's The World Around Us. His wildlife specials appear regularly on the international networks Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel.
Life On Earth | DVD | (01/09/2003)
from £11.99 | Saving you £21.00 (60.00%) | RRP
Life on Earth (1979) is an epic 13-programme series, presented by David Attenborough, offering a chronological account of the flora and fauna of planet Earth over a period of 3,500 million years. Whether recounting the first journey from the sea to the land, the development of insects and flowers, or "The First Forests" and "The Lords of the Air", Attenborough's enthusiasm is infectious. He guides us through "The Infinite Variety" of life from microbes to marsupials, via an unforgettable meeting with mountain gorillas, to conclude with "The Compulsive Communicators", mankind itself. Three years in the making, involving 1.5 million miles of travel and featuring some of the most beautiful, breathtaking and ambitious photography then seen on television, Life on Earth was the first natural history blockbuster. It redefined TV by showing that an epic, serious wildlife documentary could be a massive success. As such, it remains a true television landmark and paved the way for Attenborough's The Living Planet and further entries in what became known as his "Life" series. On the DVD: Life on Earth is presented complete in this DVD box set, with a total running time of 715 minutes (13 x 55 minutes). --Gary S Dalkin

The Planets | DVD | (24/01/2000)
from £5.89 | Saving you £24.58 (70.20%) | RRP
While watching The Planets, be prepared to fight your way past all kinds of computer animation which makes Walking with Dinosaurs seem like the last word in realism. It seems that no solar or planetary event which ever happened (or which may or may not have happened) is worthy of mention here without recourse to lovingly detailed shots of implausible-looking collisions and explosions. These come complete with sound effects, despite the fact that there is no sound in the vacuum of space, and are enhanced by a range of colours, some of which are visible only to bees. Somehow Patrick Moore's The Sky at Night manages to convey just as much excitement with little more than a couple of diagrams and the presenter's hyperactive enthusiasm. Fortunately, this two-DVD set is redeemed by both its subject matter and its sheer scope, offering all eight 50-minute episodes of the 1999 documentary series covering the history of the solar system and humanity's age-old desire to learn its secrets. Detailed indexing and scene access makes this a convenient reference source too, so amateur astronomers everywhere can finally bin those off-air VHS copies. --Roger Thomas
