3.0 out of 5 stars Are there subtitles?, 13 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Our Zoo [DVD] (DVD)
having thought of purchasing this DVD ,I note there are no subtitles for the hard of hearing! I am virtually deaf and NEED subtitles. Is the writeup just missing the subtitles ? I hope so

1.0 out of 5 stars Subtitles in Dutch only?, 1 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Hard Times [1977] [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD cannot be enjoyed at all by people like myself who are virtually deaf and NEED subtitles. Why this DVD is being sold to uk customers with only Dutch subtitles is a mystery to me. Sorry, wont be buying

Pot Luck (Pot-Bouille) (Oxford World's Classics)
Pot Luck (Pot-Bouille) (Oxford World's Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful though tough, 9 Aug. 2013

What a lovely book for its intricate descriptive passages. Yes, it exposes the absolute social hypocrisy of the time but today's standards are exactly the same althouigh wrapped up in social correctness and outward care for the poor. The whole book is such as to demand more than one reading. The gentle, yet almost cruel rise to fame and power of Octave Mouret was cleverly done leading up to the Ladies Paradise (the next book by the same author). This book was really good to read and remains much food for thought as to the current state of our own world!

The Ladies' Paradise (BBC tie-in) (Oxford World's Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ladies' Paradise, 21 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently purchase both the DVD and the book. What a difference! The DVD is an excellant family story, but only a merest shadow of the real depths of the book. To the serious lover of classic reading, the book is an absolute must as it deals with the poverty and battles in the tremendous changes of the commercial world. It is more serious than Dickens but has the same careful discriptions of the situation of rags to riches through patience and suffering in an unfriendly and changing world.Yes! the DVD is worth watching but as a gentle story, barely hinting at the depths of the original work. Watch the DVD first then get engrossed with the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful but...., 29 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Home for Christmas [DVD] (DVD)
As always, Andre Rieu and his orchestra continue to delight with the choice of programme and the intense and delighful colours. As with most of his DVDs, however,there are no subtitles for the hard of hearing so some of the magic is lost! The atmosphere of the show is still there but I really would love to be able to follow what is said and sung.

2.0 out of 5 stars subtitles, 23 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tom's Midnight Garden [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is an excellant gripping story without any nasties therein. Unfortunately, it is spoiled by the lack of subtitles for the hard of hearing. In this day and age it should be a small matter for manufacturers to arrange for this to be done. It is especially gruelling when the story has been seen WITH subtitles on terrestial TV.I will not be using any sites again unless it is made clear that subtitles are included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hustle puzzle, 6 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Again, Hustle provides hours of entertainment which is genuinely funny with the added bonus of trying to beat the end revelations of "how it was done".I do miss Stacie,however,as she provided that "extra" interest with the rest of the team that Emma never seems to have attained.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a change!, 11 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the series of this quaint and interesting view of yesteryear make for restful yet interest holding viewing. No horror,violence,swearing or blatant sexual scenes to cause upsetting anti family ideas. Excellant family viewing to inspire the union of family life


Rightly Dividing the Word
Rightly Dividing the Word

3.0 out of 5 stars short changed!, 11 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although a most excellant book and agreeing with all teachings I have been brought up on, the missing index and sketches(for cheapness of the product) is quite a disappointment.I would not recommend this particular edition to a newcomer to this type of work. Invest in the full version!
