England's finest athletes have begun their quest for glory in the 1924 Olympic Games. Success brings honour to their nation. For two runners, the honour at stake is personal and their challenge one from within.

Winner of four 1981 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Chariots Of Fire is the inspiring, true story of Harold Abrahams, Eric Liddell and the team that brought Britain one of its greatest sports victories.

Ben Cross, Ian Charleson, Nigel Havers, Nicholas Farrell and Alice Krige enjoyed their first major movie roles in this debut theatrical feature for director Hugh Hudson (Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes), producer David Puttnam (The Killing Fields, Local Hero), blended those talents to shape a film of unique and lasting impact. From its awesome footage of competition to its Oscar-winning Vangelis score, Chariots Of Fire has blazed its way into the hearts of movie lovers everywhere.

Hugh Hudson directs this nostalgic tribute to Cambridge University athletes Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell, recounting the events of the 1924 Olympics. Abrahams (Ben Cross) is a Jew who experiences racial prejudice at Cambridge, while Liddell (Ian Charleson) is a Scot who runs for the glory of God. The two become rivals on the track, and both are chosen to represent Britain at the Paris Olympics. However, a problem arises when Lidell learns that he is expected to compete on the Sabbath; something that goes directly against his religious beliefs. The film won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best Costume Design, and received a further three nominations.

Director Hugh Hudson's cut of his 1985 adventure drama set during the American Revolutionary War. Al Pacino stars as Tom Dobb, a New York fur trapper who joins the revolutionaries when his son, Ned (Sid Owen/Dexter Fletcher), is conscripted by the cruel Sergeant Major Peasy (Donald Sutherland). As he fights for freedom, Tom falls for Daisy McConnahay (Nastassja Kinski), a woman who abandons her first-class status to become a rebel, and tries to protect his son from harm.

Goran Visnjic and Dakota Goyo star in this action adventure from directors Roger Spottiswoode and Brando Quilici. When Luke (Goyo) discovers that a young polar bear has been separated from its mother, he sets out on an epic journey across the ice fields of Northern Canada to try and reunite the two. However, after a floating iceberg separates Luke from experienced Inuit tracker Muktuk (Visnjic), he is left to overcome the extreme conditions of the wild alone as he battles to complete his quest.

A collection of papers edited by four experts in the field, this book sets out to describe the way solar activity is manifested in observations of the solar interior, the photosphere, the chromosphere, the corona and the heliosphere. The 11-year solar activity cycle, more generally known as the sunspot cycle, is a fundamental property of the Sun. This phenomenon is the generation and evolution of magnetic fields in the Sun's convection zone, the photosphere. It is only by the careful enumeration and description of the phenomena and their variations that one can clarify their interdependences. The sunspot cycle has been tracked back about four centuries, and it has been recognized that to make this data set a really useful tool in understanding how the activity cycle works and how it can be predicted, a very careful and detailed effort is needed to generate sunspot numbers. This book deals with this topic, together with several others that present related phenomena that all indicate the physical processes that take place in the Sun and its exterior environment. The reviews in the book also present the latest theoretical and modelling studies that attempt to explain the activity cycle. It remains true, as has been shown in the unexpected characteristics of the first two solar cycles in the 21st century, that predictability remains a serious challenge. Nevertheless, the highly expert and detailed reviews in this book, using the very best solar observations from both ground- and space based telescopes, provide the best possible report on what is known and what is yet to be discovered. Originally published in Space Science Reviews, Vol 186, Issues 1-4, 2014.

This edited volume describes many aspects of current research on solar flares, emphasizing recent progress in understanding their X-ray and gamma-ray emissions. Several of the chapters deal comprehensively with the problems of particle acceleration, conversion of particle energy into various forms of radiation, and the inference of physical processes from observations. Other chapters deal with the full breadth and richness of flare observations, including microflares and nanoflares.
This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers in solar physics and space science.
Previously published in Space Science Reviews journal, Vol. 159/1-4, 2011.
