5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping Gammon From The Mind of a Strong Trojan., 13 Nov 2012
If there's a better book written about the driven and determined talents of Nigel Mansell then I've yet to see it. Although this DVD sometimes changes subject dramatically (one scene is about the decline of denim) it still keeps you gripped and entertained throughout. Although the subject matter may seem slightly dull to the casual reader, there's no shying away from controversy. One paragraph which describes all blind people as demented paedophilic horses is written purely in Braille. Another controversial segment is about the increase in raw gammon used as a baby substitute for disturbed young would-be-mothers. A chapter which is entirely fictional but incredibly thought-provoking. The end scene in which a backward man changes his face to resemble screaming fire is enough to send the most hard hearted of men into a crumbling mess. If you enjoy reading this kind of DVD then I think you should stay away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chocky, 16 July 2003
This review is from: Chocky [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
I was only 6 years old in 1984 when this series first aired but remember really enjoying at the time. It's often a mistake returning to a show you loved as a kid as they rarely live up to how you remember them. With this in mind, I was really pleased and surprised that 19 years on, and apart from being slightly dated, I found it very enjoyable indeed. I was especially impressed with the performance of the young lead (Matthew) and of the late James Hazledean (Matthew's father). It's an intelligent and thoughtful series and certainly does not speak down to it's audience. It certainly hits home how children's TV has fallen from grace in the last decade. If you enjoyed this series 19 years ago i don't think you will be disappointed. If you haven't seen it before, then I recommend it. Especially John Wyndham fans.
