The West Highland - Glasgow Queen Street to Fort William  DVD - Video 125
Driver's Eye View: Glasgow Queen Street to Fort William Narrated by Paul Coia The fascinating history of the West Highland Railway is told by Paul Coia as we make our way from the hustle and bustle of Scotland's largest conurbation up into the Highlands and through Britain's remotest outposts. Climbing out of the 1 in 45 Queen Street tunnel, we proceed through the suburbs of Glasgow, mostly under the wires of the Strathclyde electrics. At Craigendoran the West Highland line branches off towards Helensburgh Upper. At first, following the course of Gare Loch and Loch Long, the line eventually emerges high above the banks of Loch Lomond. By the time we reach Crianlarich (where the Oban line diverges) the dense forest has given way to more open aspects. The famous Horseshoe Curve is the next major feature encountered. Beyond Bridge of Orchy, the main road turns west towards Glen Coe, whilst the railway turns north east and strikes out across one of the last great wildernesses, Rannoch Moor! 95 miles from Glasgow we reach Britain's remotest station, Corrour. Here is the summit, the old signalman's house, but little else. The line now descends alongside remote Loch Treig into the Spean Valley and civilisation once more. Running past the foothills of Ben Nevis we arrive in the West Highland capital of Fort William. Running time - 96 minutes DVD only

The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street Free Preview (The First 3 Chapters): A Novel
In 1913, little Malka Treynovsky flees Russia with her family. Bedazzled by tales of gold and movie stardom, she tricks them into buying tickets for America. Yet no sooner do they land on the squalid Lower East Side of Manhattan, than Malka is crippled and abandoned in the street.Taken in by a tough-loving Italian ices peddler, she manages to survive through cunning and inventiveness. As she learns the secrets of his trade, she begins to shape her own destiny. She falls in love with a gorgeous, illiterate radical named Albert, and they set off across America in an ice cream truck. Slowly, she transforms herself into Lillian Dunkle, "The Ice Cream Queen" -- doyenne of an empire of ice cream franchises and a celebrated television personality. Lillian's rise to fame and fortune spans seventy years and is inextricably linked to the course of American history itself, from Prohibition to the disco days of Studio 54. Yet Lillian Dunkle is nothing like the whimsical motherly persona she crafts for herself in the media. Conniving, profane, and irreverent, she is a supremely complex woman who prefers a good stiff drink to an ice cream cone. And when her past begins to catch up with her, everything she has spent her life building is at stake.

Dark Passage [1947] / Key Largo [1948]
Dark Passage [1947] / Key Largo [1948]
ABOUT THE DVD: This 2-DISC DVD UK release by WARNER HOME VIDEO (Region 2 PAL format - which will play on all standard DVD players in the UK and the rest of Europe - buyers outside of Europe will need a multi-region player in order to view this) features two of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall's finest films - DARK PASSAGE - Bogie's on the runs, and Bacall's at his side in Delmer Daves' stylish film-noir thriller that's the third of four films Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall made together. Bogart is Vincent Parry, a prison escapee framed for murder who emerges from plastic surgery with a new face. Bacall is Irene Jansen, his lone ally. In sharp support, Agnes Moorhead plays a venomous harpy finding pleasure in the unhappiness of others. The leads' chemistry is undenialbe augmented here with exceptional tenderness. Exceptional too are San Francisco locations and creative camerawork that shows Vincent's point of view - but not his face - until bandages are removed. Lest Irene get ideas, post-surgery Vincent tells her "Don't change yours, I like it just as it is". So do we. KEY LARGO - A hurrican swells outside, but it's nothing to the storm within the hotel at KEY LARGO. There, sadistic mobster Johnny Rocco (EDWARD G. ROBINSON) holes up - and holds at gunpoint hotel owner Nora Temple (LAUREN BACALL), her invalid father-in-law (LIONEL BARRYMORE), and ex-GI Frank McCloud (HUMPHREY BOGART). McCloud's the one man capable of standing up against the belligerent Rocco. But the postwar world's realities may have taken all the fight out of him. John Huston co-wrote and compellingly directs this film of Maxwell Anderson's 1939 play, with a searing Academy Award-winning performance by CLAIRE TREVOR as Rocco's gold-hearted boozy moll. In Huston's hands it becomes a powerful, sweltering classic.

Gloucester: The Crossroads Of England DVD
Gloucester: The Crossroads Of England DVD
This is the story of the ancient city of Gloucester, which begins with the arrival of the Romans almost 2,000 years ago. Located at the lowest crossing point of the Severn, it is the furthest inland port in the country. It was granted the title of Colonia, the highest status a city could have in the Roman empire, and was called Glevum. When the Romans left Britain, Gloucester gradually fell into ruin, yet in the 10th century it became an important town in the kingdom of Mercia. From that time Gloucester featured prominently in history. In 1216, Henry III was crowned in the magnificent Abbey, the present day Cathedral, and Edward II was buried there just over a hundred years later. Queen Elizabeth I granted the city Port status in 1580, enabling it to undertake foreign trade and eventually become one of the country`s busiest ports. The recently redeveloped Docks remain an evocative and atmospheric place today. The city grew and continued to prosper in the Industrial Age, helped by the coming of the Railways in the 1840s, and in more recent times the local workforce has manufactured such varied products as railway rolling stock, motorcycles and matches. Special attention is paid to the Gloster Aircraft Company, which peaked during the Second World War when it employed some 14,000 people. World-famous aeroplanes such as the Meteor, Javelin and Gladiator are commemorated in the Aviation Garden in the centre of the city. As the tale unfolds, you will learn more about the Cross, at the heart of Gloucester, where the four main streets meet; the famous local legends of Dick Whittington and Doctor Foster; how Gloucester inspired the renowned children`s author, Beatrix Potter; and the unplanned visit of C.S. Rolls, of Rolls-Royce fame. With the help of some remarkable archive material, fascinating interviews and stunning modern film, the story is told by local historian and tour guide Chris Morgan, who has lived and worked in the Gloucester area all her life.

Fly Into Danger [DVD]
Fly Into Danger [DVD]
At Chilford Green Aerodrome, a small, privately owned airfield in the heart of England, the transportation of cargo takes place daily. But this is no ordinary cargo - as 18-year-old Chris Lomax is to discover. A keen motor mechanic whose enthusiasm for aircraft has prompted him to get a job at Chilford, Chris's self-reliance and questioning mind are soon causing consternation for his employers; as he gets alarmingly close to the true nature of the airfield's operations, it becomes clear that Chris - and his young colleague, Sarah - could be in serious danger. Fly Into Danger was a seven-part action series aimed at a younger audience; however, its spectacular and rapidly paced airborne sequences and a subject matter as relevant today as when it first aired in 1972 ensure that Fly Into Danger will appeal to viewers of all ages. Written by Roy Russell (The Saint, The Queen Street Gang) and boasts a strong cast. Originally made in colour, only two episodes still exist in this format, the remaining five coming from black and white telerecordings.
