1.0 out of 5 stars Only had it a few months and there are problems ..., 22 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only had it a few months and there are problems. Radio turns on when in the pocket or in a bag
It tunes into different stations whatever part of the country I am in.
Now I am getting no service message on the screen.
Suppose you get what you paid for.
Search starting for another model

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain of the year?, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never have a film and sound track worked in such perfect harmony.
The film is often beautiful, occasionally bizarre, but always beguiling.
The sound track is the perfect complement. Once heard, the music has a mesmeric, haunting effect.
The double bonus is the DVD and cd in one collection.
They will both be classics in their own sphere. Landmark events in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding documentary, 10 Jan 2013
This review is from: McCullin [DVD] (DVD)
This is an immensely powerful and at times moving documentary about one of the world's foremost photographers, who came from humble, unpromising beginnings to become the top of his profession.
Currently on release at cinemas, it is engrossing and grips the attention of the viewer from the start as McCullin reflects on his time covering wars, conflicts and famine.
His stunning photography is inter-cut with archive film footage, and an early DVD release so soon after the cinema showing is eagerly awaited.

Footsteps from East Coker
Footsteps from East Coker
by David Foot
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Milestone book, 10 Feb 2011
It is a milestone event when a new book by David Foot is published, and this latest offering by the most descriptive, evocative sports-writer in the country does not disappoint.
It follows on from the likes of his biography of Harold Gimblett and, earlier, Country Reporter, which is possibly the best book ever written about journalism (there was talk at one time of a tv adaptation by Keith Waterhouse, but sadly this never came about)
In Footsteps from East Coker, Foot writes vividly about the village of his birth, his up-bringing, his parents, friends and neighbours before starting out on a career in journalism, rich, varied and rewarding for anyone who has read his newspaper columns or his books.
Now in his ninth decade, Foot maintains a standard of excellence that other writers can only envy - while in touch with his past, he is also in tune with the present.
Warmly recommended.
