5.0 out of 5 stars A superb series, 5 Mar. 2013
Set in the 60s Martin Shaw plays the role of Inspector Gently with perfect precision and coupled with great storylines this is a real must see for anyone who is a fan of good British TV detectives. I bought a copy of this 'Best of' for a friend so that they can see it for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Utter Gem, 29 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Ondatropica (Audio CD)
I had never considered myself especially a fan of South American music but I happened to hear the 4th track of this album (Suena) on a Songlines sampler album and was completely hooked. For me there were obvious parellels between Ondatropica/Columbian music and Buena Vista Social Club/Cuban Music way back when, in that both offered a fantasic entrance into a whole new musical world and having set off in this direction it is a world that I fully intend to explore. I defy anyone to listen to this great collection of songs and not smile with sheer enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD for an amazing service, 13 July 2012
This review is from: Mayday Mayday [DVD] (DVD)
I missed this series when it aired on TV but really enjoyed catching up with the DVD. A great insight into the life onboard (and off) the Lifeboats with the various crews that man our coastline 24/7 365 days a year risking their lives to keep us safe. (As an aside I never have understood how such an essential job can be left to volunteers to undertake, imagine if the fire or ambulance service was manned in this way, no doubt there would be uproar.) But thank God that these people do step up and this DVD is a fitting tribute to the work that they do. The action packed series shows the crews out on daring rescues as well as uncovering some background to the men and women who work for the service.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Series, 18 Jan. 2012
What a great series this is. Originally airing on BBC One in the daytime this is the ongoing wartime saga of life at Hoxley Manor with the Land Girls, the Home Guard and the formidable Lady Hoxley. Well worth watching. The first two series are also available and this is one of those rare gems that doesn't seem to be diminishing over time.Land Girls Series One and Two Boxed Set [DVD]

This review is from: Talking Bagpuss (Toy)
Everyone at some stage in their life should experience something as magical as the feeling that we got when our 2 yr-old daughter opened up her Christmas parcel to find Bagpuss inside. She loves it - so we love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Amazing, 18 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Earthflight [DVD] (DVD)
The best words I can find to describe this new series from the BBC are 'utterly amazing'. Each episode follows an aerial journey across a continent with the final episode being a 'making of'. The spectacular footage of some of the world's most amazing phenomena, all filmed from a bird's eye perspective, is like nothing I have ever seen before. A DVD that will be watched over and over again. Utterly amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Over the Moon, 24 Sept. 2010
As a huge fan of Cherie Lunghi I was over the moon when the first series of The Manageress was released. It was great to be able to watch it again and it was just as good as I remembered from the first time I watched it. Having devoured the first DVD I have been eagerly waiting for the release of the second and final series which is just as good as the first and also has some great performances from actors who have gone onto bigger things (Stephen Tompkinson/Ross Kemp).

5.0 out of 5 stars From Good to Great, 24 Sept. 2010
By the time you get to the fourth series of any progamme you expect it to start loosing a bit of steam but that just isn't the case with The Good Life. It appears as if everyone involved in the production of this excellent title just got more and more comfortable with the roles as they matured and the comedy just got better and better.

What makes this final DVD release even stronger is the inclusion of The Royal Command Performance which was filmed live in front of an audience which included the Queen and Prince Philip.

If you only want to buy one Good Life DVD then buy the complete boxed set - if you only want to buy one series then this is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fnally - EVERY EPISODE - from Series 3 on DVD, 19 July 2010
Ignore some of the old reviews that don't relate to this release. Finally every epsiode from series three is released on DVD and it is great to see. An absolute classic of a BBC comedy and one that i can watch time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 18 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Playing Shakespeare [DVD] (DVD)
I have wanted to get hold of a copy of this fantastic series since 1982 when it was first broadcast and I am certainly not disappointed now that I have had the chance to watch it again. An absolute must for anyone studying or with an interest in Shakespeare. The enigmatic John Barton holds an acting masterclass with some of the finest young actors of the time - most of them have gone on to become huge names in both the theatre and on screen:- Judi Dench, Ben Kingsley, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, David Suchet, Donald Sinden - the list goes on.

Compulsive, compelling viewing - an utter classic TV series.
