Early 1960s musical drama following the fortunes of a group of teenagers who are encouraged to channel their rebellious energy into a band. Johnnie (Ray Brooks), Bill (David Andrews) and Bert (David Hemmings) have two hobbies: riding motorcycles and listening to rock music. When they are banned from doing the first following their involvement in a traffic accident, their aimless wandering leads them to a church where Johnnie gives an impromptu display of his musical skills on the organ. The vicar responds to this in the way the alienated youths have grown to expect, rebuking them furiously, but the local choirmaster Mr Smith (Kenneth More) decides to take a different approach with the boys. Through offering them the use of the church hall to start a band and the opportunity to engage with youngsters participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Smith presents them with an unexpected chance to make something of themselves.

Classic documentary drama based on Walter Lord's book about the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. Told from the perspective of Second Officer Charles Lightoller (Kenneth More), the story follows the supposedly 'unsinkable' ship as she embarks on her maiden voyage and ultimately founders in the North Atlantic Ocean. The ship leaves port and soon Captain Smith (Laurence Naismith) is given several ice warnings but decides not to decrease the Titanic's speed. When the ship hits an iceberg late at night on April 14th the situation looks bleak, especially with the realisation that there are not enough lifeboats to carry all on board. The Titanic's distress call is received by the Carpathia but she is four hours away and unlikely to reach the ship before it sinks. Chaos breaks out both above and below deck as the passengers and crew race against time for their survival.

A collection of five classic war films. In 'The Longest Day' (1962), an all-star international cast retells the events of the Allied Landings in Normandy in 1944. Events are seen from various points of view, including the Germans', in an epic and spectacular style. John Wayne, Robert Mitchum and Henry Fonda head the cast. In 'Twelve O'Clock High' (1949), Colonel Keith Davenport (Gary Merrill) commands the respect of his US bomber crew stationed in wartime Britain. But when Davenport is replaced by the callous General Savage (Gregory Peck), the latter's attempts to whip the crew into shape result in a deluge of requests for transfers. 'A Farewell to Arms' (1957) is a big budget remake of the 1932 original based on the novel by Ernest Hemingway. Rock Hudson stars as the American ambulance driver who falls in love with his nurse (Jennifer Jones) after being wounded in World War One, and deserts his post in order to be with her. In WWII drama 'The Desert Rats' (1953), British captain 'Tammy' MacRoberts (Richard Burton) takes charge of a squad of Australian troops to train them for desert fighting. However, his stiff upper lip doesn't help to win over his Australian charges. James Mason reprises his role as Field Marshal Rommel from the film 'The Desert Fox' (1951). Finally, 'Sink the Bismarck!' (1960) is director Lewis Gilbert's dramatic retelling of the Allied mission in the spring of 1941 to find and destroy Germany's largest battleship, the Bismarck. The story is told from the angle of the ships involved and the war room in London where Captain John Shepherd (Kenneth More) plots the manouevres using models of the vessels. The final scenes are a mixture of newsreel of the battle and updated special effects.

R2,530 Discovery Miles 25 300 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Since 1914, the French state has faced a succession of daunting and at times almost insurmountable crises. The turbulent decades from 1914 to 1969 witnessed near-defeat in 1914, economic and political crisis in 1926, radical political polarization in the 1930s, military conquest in 1940, the deep division of France during the Nazi Occupation, political reconstruction after 1944, de-colonization (with threatening civil war provoked by the Algerian crisis), and dramatic postwar modernization. However, this tumultuous period was not marked just by crises but also by tremendous change. Economic, social and political "modernization" transformed France in the twentieth century, restoring its confidence and its influence as a leader in global economic and political affairs. This combination of crises and renewal has received surprisingly little attention in recent years. The present collection show-cases significant new scholarship, reflecting greater access to French archival sources, and focuses on the role of crises in fostering modernization in areas covering politics, economics, women, diplomacy and war.

Junior doctor Simon Sparrow (Dirk Bogarde) gains a position at St Swithin's Hospital in London and ends up sharing 'digs' with a bunch of slightly older young medics, all of whom have failed the previous year on account of their inability to keep to the curriculum. Sparrow tries to find a balance between the antics of his new peers and the ever-terrifying Sir Lancelot Spratt, chief surgeon at St Swithin's and a man on the lookout for miscreant doctors wherever they may be. Menaced by the advances of his landlady's daughter, and feelings for one of the nurses, will Sparrow be able to qualify?

Defense of the franc Poincaré dominated French economic policy during the Depression. While most countries took their currencies off gold to permit a wider range of domestic policies to foster recovery, in France policy makers resolved to preserve the gold parity of the franc by balancing the budget and lowering domestic prices. Novelty and experimentation were rejected in the conviction that a durable recovery was possible only through a return to strict neoclassical orthodoxy. Managing the franc Poincaré examines French monetary management from 1928 to 1936 in order to explain this stubborn determination to achieve recovery through deflation despite evidence of its failures abroad. Through evaluation of French understanding of the Depression, French economic diplomacy in an era of economic nationalism, the evolving roles of the French treasury and the Bank of France in monetary management and policy determination, and attention to the fractious politics of the Third Republic, French monetary policy is set within its ideological, institutional and political contexts.
