Brief Encounters: Meetings with Remarkable People
Brief Encounters: Meetings with Remarkable People
by Gyles Daubeney Brandreth
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gyles is terrific writer in this kind of a field and this book is no exception. One of his best. The encounters vary a little in interest and I wondered whether some of his material was used again in his happiness book? Enjoyable though, nonetheless.

This review is from: Forbidden Pleasures (Audio CD)
I have a lot of classical compilation albums and what's telling about this one is that I play it over and over during evening meals. I like the way the whole thing is themed and even the cover helps in giving it an overall feel. Lovely atmospheric music to soothe you and settle you down.

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can imagine many feeling this little film is rather pedestrian and dated. However it evoked memories of the days of seaside variety, and being filmed at Cromer, reminds us that these shows still go on these every year on the pier. Well worthy watching for an inoffensive drama with charm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best of Cilla, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was nice to see these again and Cilla is certainly versatile enough to pull these off. However, the writing is rather pedestrian and we would all much rather have episodes from her many variety series where she shone along with her talented guests.


In Concert [DVD] [2013] [NTSC]
In Concert [DVD] [2013] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Caro Emerald
Offered by La Pianola
Price: 25.38

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay concert by up and comin artiste, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have enjoyed some of Caro's audio tracks and this concert is in the same vein. However, the constant "scratching" (if that's the word?) becomes rather irritating and her actual performance is rather samey throughout. She could learn, for example, from Petula Clark or Cilla Black when it comes to performance technique and holding an audience.


The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Pocketbook Guide to Fulfilling Your Dreams (One Hour of Wisdom)
The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success: A Pocketbook Guide to Fulfilling Your Dreams (One Hour of Wisdom)
by Deepak Chopra
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars This is wonderful, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this little book inspiring. It could be life-changing even, for those not started on a spiritual journey. A very good introduction to Deepak's works which are numerous and all well worth looking into. Recommended for those with mild depression or finding life a bit much. I keep it by me to refer back to again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rather mixed, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Travellin' Two Beat is wonderful to own again after all these years ( along with Fancy Meeting You Here which paired Bing with Rosie in other terrific arrangements. However, the country songs are bland and dull, and not at all suited to Bing's voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great "first show" dvd, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
I'm sure we all have these tracks over and over. However, what's new is the dvd of Cilla's first tv "special" which shows a raw version of the great talent she was to turn out to be. Used to love to see Peter Gordeno and here he is again after all these years! A Talk of the Town style show filmed at the Savoy with Cilla doing her If I Had a Hammer routine for the first time .A routine she would hone and polish many times in her live act over the years.

The Swanage Railway Experience - DVD - Video 125
Dvd ~ Fred Dinenage
Offered by Videoscene
Price: 9.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely exploration of the Purbeck line, well narrated by Fred Dinenage. Would have liked to see Fred on screen as he is in the similar Bluebell film. A very nice extra is the cab ride which I watched at double speed, bringing it down to ten minutes instead of twenty. (The real train does in fact only go at 25 mph so I guess this way you travel at 50!)

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but didn't like it., 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Good Year [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
I'm afraid I turned this off after 25 mins as it really didn't resonate with me at all. I'm sure they are good performances but the overall colouring of the film was constantly off putting and the story just didn't interest me.
