Planet Earth : Complete BBC Series (5 Disc Box Set) [2006] [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, 11 Oct 2009
I watched this series whilst in hospital looking after my mother. I thought it would be interesting but didn't expect to be completely captivated by it. The nurses spent a lot of time in my mother's room as they would walk in, see the screen and say 'ooh, where's that' and continue watching, as they too were transfixed.

Worth every bit of the 5 year effort it took to make. Watching the sections about how the crew did all the filming was just as good as the actual work itself.

One cannot fail to be compelled to protect this beautiful and vulnerable planet after watching 'Planet Earth'.

An excellent book, well written and very easy to read. It gives an all-round view of building with straw.

I'm looking forward to the revised version coming out at the end of this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toshiba 500GB, 3 July 2009
Does exactly what is expected of it. Slightly on the heavy side but that's a worthy trade off for something that works 100% and is slient.

Banker to the Poor: The Story of the Grameen Bank
Banker to the Poor: The Story of the Grameen Bank
by Muhammad Yunus
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Banker To The Poor, 3 July 2009
A humble account by a remarkable man and his story of creating Grameen Bank; A bank set up to break the poverty cycle Bangladeshis are in thanks to high rates of interest from money-lenders.

A very readable book, it's not about banking in the traditional sense at all so don't let that put you off. Anyone with an interest in 'Third World' issues should read this book as it gives an outline of a shining example of something that works.
