5.0 out of 5 stars Ancestry Self Service, 24 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Must be fantastic when it is all done for you, and you don't even have to pay the travel expenses, but then, if it wasn't for such a fantastic research team and such famous names, we probably wouldn't watch it.
The series is so interesting if you are a lover of family history and the 'famous names' involved do look as if they are enthused.
The last few releases don't have as much detail of the 'origins' of the information they are basing their quest on but, nevertheless, it is still full of riveting information and most enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Temple brought a little more 'up to date'., 7 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First book I have listened to in the 'Paul Temple' series well read by
'Toby Stephens'. The Audio voice took a bit of getting used to after listening
to so many read by the fantastic and smooth voiced 'Anthony Head'; but by the
end of the first disc my brain had tuned into his voice pattern and it was most
enjoyable.
Good Mystery and Unabridged. Well worth spoiling yourself with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ngaio Marsh Country House Murder, 7 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anton Lesser reading Ngaio Marsh and the 'handsome' Inspector
Alleyn as the hero...what more could you ask from a novel when
being read with such expertise. Country house drama at its best.

This review is from: Look To The Lady (Audio CD)
Another Margery Allingham classic with Campion as the
loveable hero. Philip Frank's reading is perfection for
this type of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars There are no bad Allingham's, 7 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cargo Of Eagles (Audio CD)
Excellent story, another Margery Allingham/Campion favorite and well
read by Philip Franks who's voice makes you feel that
you are actually listening to Albert Campion relating the
text.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket Picture Book, 7 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sky High Isle of Wight (Hardcover)
This is a 'pocket' book if anyone is purchasing it.
I like it because of sentimental reasons but it could
not be used for reference as the book is so small
the areal photographs do not pick out landmarks
with any detail and there is not enough reference to each photograph.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pocket Book History, 12 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those who love books on 'domestic' history this offering
is great.
A fair bit of information in such a small book, giving the
history of the Department Store as well as a brief insight
of the founders.
Good value as are all of 'Shire Library' books.

The World of Tim Frazer (BBC Audio Crime)

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Paul Temple, 31 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a perfect Audio book if you are a fan of 'Paul Temple', by the
same author Francis Durbridge.
The reading is impeccably done by 'Anthony Head' who makes the new hero
believable.
Great listening.
