5.0 out of 5 stars The Best US TV Series in years, 24 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got totally hooked on Terranova. Great plot. Great storyline Great actors.
I do not agree that its a waste of time buying this DVD. Series 1 stopped the Phoenix group, so the series had an end. I guess series 2 would have picked up on how the figurehead arrived in Terranova.
A major disappointment that the Terranova story did not continue

4.0 out of 5 stars a Floydist's appreciation, 27 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My expectations from this unofficial release were not very high when I purchased it. I have long awaited an official release from Roger's Dark Side of the Moon Tour. For me, Roger Waters is the genius that was Pink Floyd. However, I am pleasantly surprised by the Quality of this release.Its great to have another Live verion of Dark Side of the Moon. The film seems to have been shot close up from on stage. Picture and sound quality are good.A worthy addition to any Floydists collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Insights into Charles darwin's experiments at Down House, 12 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Charles Darwin served on HMS Beagle for five years but did not gain his great insight into Evolution until after he returned to England
Five Years later Darwin settled in Down House in Kent where he would live for the rest of his life. It was at home that Charles Darwin began work on his masterpiece "On the Origin of Species". Charles Darwin used the garden as his Laboratory and in "Darwin's Garden", Michael Boulter gives an exciting insight into Darwin's experiments and the formation of his great idea.As a great admirer of Charles Darwin I found this a most enjoyable book. Read the book and visit Down House .

5.0 out of 5 stars A very special book on Charles Darwin, 11 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Charles Darwin is my "hero", he produced the Great Theory of Evolution through observation,simple experiments and networking with other Naturalists. No cloistered university, no mumbo jumbo, he is accessible to the ordinary reader.
2009 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin.
I have a big collection of Darwin books but "Charles Darwin: The Story of the Man and His Theories of Evolution" is something extra.
This is a book to treasure, a legacy, a book to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin, a special book - one to cherish and enjoy.

Charles Darwin: The Story of the Man and His Theories of Evolution
provides the reader with a biography of Darwin's life and of his great theory of evolution. The story traces Darwin's life from his childhood,his life-changing voyage on board HMS Beagle as a companion to Captain Fitzroy. His great work, "On the Origin of Species" is clearly explained, as well as Darwin's other amazing works. This book is lavishly illustrated and also features many interesting items of facsimile memorabilia, including: diaries, handwritten notebooks, notes and letters, maps & sketches that bring the book alive.
If you buy one book about Charles Darwin this year, I would recommend this.
Also why not visit "Darwins Great idea " exhibition at the Natural History Museum and visit Down House, Darwin's home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great programme and Inspirational too, 15 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Waiting eagerly for this DVD. This was such an amazing programme. I love Dartmoor and this programme takes us through a year on the moor through the eyes of Satish Kumar. through watching this problem I discovered new places to visit.
Satish Kumar is inspirational . He radiates peace and calm.
This programme works on two levels for me, the first a lovely film about Dartmoor and on the second its relaxing, medititative. *****

5.0 out of 5 stars KIng of the Kingboards, 22 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't wait for this DVD to be released. Caught Rick's Grumpy Old Picture Show live in Cheltenham on the 15th April. An outstanding show from Rick, virtuoso of Piano and Keyboards and very funny too. I have not laughed so much for a long time . The multi layered performance of Rick playing with himself on the picture Screen and with Gordon Giltrap showed great mastery and timing. Rick Wakeman is still for me the King of the Keyboards. Pre- order this and you be in for a treat. Even better, try and catch the Grumpy Old Picture Show live
