ABBA were one of the first pop groups to exploit the promotional video as a vehicle for publicising their music across the globe. ABBA--The Definitive Collection provides an audio-visual timeline of how their promos developed over a 10-year period from the mid-1970s to the early 80s. The first ABBA videos were simple recordings of the band miming to their songs in a studio ("Waterloo" and "Ring Ring"); then, for "Mamma Mia" and "SOS", the style was replaced by something more adventurous, focusing on the four grouped together in rival pairs. As technology and the group evolved so did their promo films, with more recent examples shot on videotape and incorporating post-production special effects and outdoor locations ("One Of Us" and "Head over Heels"). Director Lasse Hallstrom has since made the transition from these relatively low-budget vehicles to Hollywood success with Chocolat and The Shipping News. If ABBAs early efforts look a little primitive compared to big-budget modern music promos, the songs themselves now sound even better than ever, having been digitally re-mastered in 24-bit format. As well as featuring the digitally re-mastered promos for the majority of their single releases, exclusive previously unreleased material is also incorporated here, such as the extended original mix of "On and On and On". On the DVD: ABBA--The Definitive Collection on DVD squeezes in all 30 videos, plus five bonus tracks which include the promos for the Spanish-language versions of "I Have a Dream", "Happy New Year" and "When All is Said and Done". The video for the never released "When I Kissed the Teacher" is also included, too, as is a camp recording of "Dancing Queen" filmed at a gala tribute for Swedens King and Queen. The 20-minute picture gallery is an excellent and comprehensive photographic record of the group through the years. Background information about all of the material, is discussed in the accompanying biographical booklet.--John Galilee

Journey through the past, present and future of Earth as History explores the very real beginnings of our planet, thepotentially catastrophic results of our own behaviour on it, and the possibility of a world wiped clean of humanity. Includes:How The Earth Was Made:History goes back in time, from 4.5 billion years ago to today, to reveal the mystery of geology across the world. Spectacular onlocation shooting and dramatic graphics combine to show how the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have literally shaped the world we live in.A Global Warning?:Arctic ice is melting, sea levels are rising, glaciers are shrinking at alarming rates, and the Earth is getting unmistakably warmer. Is this vast, potentially catastrophic, climate change the result of human behaviour?

Some extraordinary phenomena have taken place in recent times; Hurricane Katrina the heat wave of 2003 polar bears swimming in search of ice and vast swarms of insects enveloping an African village. But are these isolated incidents or are they omens of a greater global change? Sir David discovers that the world is warming at an unprecedented rate and finds out why this is now far beyond any normal allowance for cyclical fluctuation. But are humans to blame? These changes are already in motion whatever we do now but Sir David believes that we may be able to act to prevent a catastrophe. People around the world are having to adapt their way of life as the climate changes; the Inuit in the Arctic whose hunting is now limited the Pacific island inhabitants forced to move as their homes disappear beneath the waves and the Siberian homes slowly sinking into the permafrost. Sir David investigates some of the possible scenarios for the future including rising sea levels insect plagues and an increase in diseases.

This collection of 200 of the most influential music videos in Britain 1966 to 2016 is the result of a three-year University research project run in partnership with the British Film Institute and the British Library. The collection has been put together by a team of researchers in collaboration with a panel of over one hundred directors, producers, cinematographers, editors, choreographers, colourists and video commissioners from the business. Each video has been selected because it represents a landmark in music video history - a new genre, film technique, post-production method, distribution channel, or other landmark. Along with the 6 discs comes a booklet explaining the history of British music videos since 1966 and rare production credits: using archives, callsheets, interviews and trade press listings the researchers have identified credits for directors, producers, executive producers, directors of photography, editors, colourists, production companies and choreographers as well as information about the source material on which the video was shot where available. In order to protect the artistic integrity of each, the videos are presented in their original native aspect aspect ratio. The videos for Manfred Mann's Mighty Quinn' and Flowered Up's Weekender' have been digitally re-mastered for this collection from the original film prints dating back to 1967 and 1992.

Though Hammer Films ceased theatrical production in the mid-1970s, the TV series Hammer House of Horror afforded the studio a last hurrah in 1980. Though it uses original scripts rather than adaptations of published stories, the series feels like an update of Hammer's earlier Journey to the Unknown, with a mix of contemporary settings, predictable twist endings, mock-gruesome horror, mild sex, familiar TV faces and sly camp that puts it on the shelf somewhere between Nigel Kneale's Beasts and Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected. The shows are variously directed by Hammer regulars Don Sharp (Kiss of the Vampire), Peter Sasdy (Countess Dracula), Robert Young (Vampire Circus) and Alan Gibson (Dracula AD 1972). --Kim Newman Volume One Episodes: "The House That Bled to Death; "The Silent Scream"; "Two Faces of Evil". A box set is also available.
