Thirty years ago National Geographic made an amazing programme which broke new ground in science filmmaking and made people look at their bodies in a completely different light. The Incredible Human Machine premiered to amazing ratings and sold like hotcakes in a nascent home video market - and it's still selling on DVD today. But it's definitely time for an update - and this is it! Just imagine what we can do now. We'll see images from new medical technologies that will virtually turn us inside-out and expose how we function; down to our very cells; down to the molecular level. In 30 years medical imaging technologies have advanced by leaps and bounds. Now the imagery is 3D - and even 4D - in incredible crisp detail. We will reveal the miraculous everyday workings of the human machine - how we eat breathe and walk on two feet. We are nature's finest specimen and science's greatest mystery; skin sight sound breath circulation digestion muscles bones reproduction and the brain are just some of the topics that will be uncovered in ways not previously thought possible. Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler's legendary vocal cords give us intimate insight into how we produce sound. At the same time we will reveal medical mysteries that were previously unsolved: how we smell see and even process emotion.
Dr Feelgood: Oil City Confidential
Banned on its original release in 1961, West End Jungle gives the definitive insight into the seedy reality and cunning artifice of the sex-workers of early 60's Soho. Now re-released as special expanded collector's edition with two additional archive shockumentaries, and a pop promo by the legendary Marc Almond. The Street Offences Act of 1959 cleared the over painted harridan face of the West End - the prostitutes - off the streets of Soho. Genuinely seedy and filmed in the private member's clubs, the 'actual places of vice' - that resulted from the change in the law, West End Jungle bears witness to the array of less than salubrious establishments that offered tawdry strip shows for audiences comprised of bald heads and moist avid eyes. London railway termini are seen as the ideal locale for pimps to secure ripe plums for the picking - naive country girls who can be seduced into a life of vice. Within days, the weak willed glamour-hungry bumpkins become skillful, heartless gold-diggers. The striptease clubs are a battlefield, the punters very much seen as 'mugs' to be reeled in by the hostesses for all the money they've got! West End Jungle paints a less than complimentary picture of the men who solicit sex workers in clubs which are little more than high grade cattle markets, one hooker stating, One of these days I'm going to burst out laughing in one of their stupid faces! Shrewd businessmen are reduced to lecherous imbeciles in the company of two giggling working girls. Another man pays a tragically poor Marilyn Monroe look-a-like to 'model' for him only to be entitled to five minutes of peering at a girl who needs a good wash. DVD includes:Documentary: Skin Deep (18 mins) Directed by Arnold L. Miller, this was the first shockumentary to document the intricacies of intimate cosmetic surgery in full colour! Documentary: Get 'Em Off (1976, 26 mins) Directed by Miller's contemporary Harold Baim, this film goes behind the scenes of one of London's top strip-tease clubs. Pop Promo: Marc Almond 'Variety' (2010, 3 mins) - Made from footage from 'West End Jungle'. Newsreel: Clubs Galore! (Soho 1958). Newsreel: Sir John Wolfenden on Prostitution and the Street Offences Act 1959. Interview: Director Arnold L. Miller in Conversation in 2009.

The shattering experience of the Great War in the trenches took its toll on a generation of men who were called up to fight in the nightmare of the trenches. The experience proved so awe inspiring that for many the experience could only be summed up in verse. Today their work has become famous for its poignancy and sense of loss. Young men such as Wilfred Owen, John McCrae, and Rupert Brooke were cut down in their prime yet their memory lives on in the brief flowering of immortal verse. .
