5.0 out of 5 stars Nazis A Warning, 23 May 2011
I live near the Martyr Village in Limousin France. I bought this when I moved here.Highly recommended a top notch documentary, all real footage, no creepy re-enactments. New views on the structure of the party and the bickering and toadying of the officers under Hitler

There are a couple of great versions of Gettysburg. This isnt one of them. I couldnt watch it for the truely awful fake beards the actors all wear. You can see one on the left of the cover.

2.0 out of 5 stars Curiosity Shop Dickens, 23 May 2011
Still havent finished this after buying it almost a year ago. There is something creepy about Dickens portrayal of young girls and I was not looking forward too his depiction of her death.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fall of Giants, 23 May 2011
Fall of giants indeed. Do not expect anything like Pillars of The Earth, which is why I bought this one ,it is dreary and plodding I kept skipping bits which is a bad sign for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard Times Dickens, 23 May 2011
A very funny book. See where monty python got the luxury sketch ie. Hole in the road, Luxury. See where it comes from when Mr Gradgind explains his upbringing.
Short for a book but I wish I had read it a long tme ago.


How to See Colour and Paint it
How to See Colour and Paint it
by Arthur Stern
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A guide to colour, 23 May 2011
I lent my copy to a freind who lost it, only after much searching did I find this copy, fabulous theory on colour which made my paintings fabulous too. The only problem is the strict adherance to specific brands and colours some of which are very hard to find, particularly the pthalo bue and green. If you want to mix any colour to match a colour in real life this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schama History of Britain, 23 May 2011
Wow, the facts come thick and fast on this one, Mr Schama does a great job and all the history is put from new and interesting angles. Ends with Chuchill, fine explanation on 1066, and Ive watched it 4 times and look forward to catching a cold so I can stay home and watch it again.

Dvd ~ Helen Mirren
Offered by WorldCinema
Price: 24.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Helen Mirren Prime Suspect, 23 May 2011
This series seemed to dissapear from the schedule for some reason and I was glad to be able to buy the series at last, even has a documentary on the making of the show. Anyone who liked The Killing will love this too. Full of drama suspense and intrigue and grisly murders to solve. You know the drill, when the boss says I want you of the case etc. Brilliant

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ceasars explained, 23 May 2011
All you need to know about Caligula, Ceasar,Nero and the others. Good production values and acting. Nero was not such a bad bloke after all. They all thought they were gods. But well researched and intelligently put together.

1.0 out of 5 stars History Channels Idea of Rome, 23 May 2011
A load of discs from the History cable channel with bad historical re-enactments
I even saw a pagan selling a Georgian wine cooler in heaven knows what year.
Do not be fooled this is not Rome the series. Its thinks unless someone is killing someone else with a sword then its not worth filming.
