R56 Discovery Miles 560 Shipped within 4 - 8 working days

A life ended too soon. A life's work that endures. The inspiring, true story of Dian Fossey.

Amid the deep greens and dappled sunlight of a cloud forest in Rwanda, a family of mountain gorillas is at leisure and play. Sitting with them is a woman who mimics their movements, pretends to chew leaves and gains the acceptance of the group's dominant silverback. That woman is Dian Fossey.
The remarkable adventure of pioneering primatologist Fossey unfolds in this film directed by Michael Apted and shot mainly in the Rwandan habitat of the mountain gorillas. In a performance that won the Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Actress, Sigourney Weaver portrays Fossey: charismatic, commanding and driven by a single-mindedness that would both be her strength...and perhaps lead to her tragic murder.

The backwoods of North Carolina is where Nell lives, all alone. She has her own form of language and no idea of a world beyond her small plot of land. Then civilisation enters her life in the form of two doctors, who discover the untamed wild child. Now that they have come to study her, Nell's life will never be the same again - but neither will theirs.

Based on Mark Handley's play Idioglossia, which means a language for one, Nell is an intriguing look at a person who has grown up without any contact with the modern world.

A triple-bill of children's films. In 'Gulliver's Travels' (2010) Jack Black stars as Lemuel Gulliver, a lowly mailroom worker who spontaneously reinvents himself as a free-spirited travel writer in order to impress a co-worker. He soon finds himself mistakenly sent off on a whirlwind assignment to Bermuda and en route is washed ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput. Initially captured and enslaved by the island's diminutive and industrious population of Lilliputians, he eventually manages to win them over with his questionable charms and is eventually declared their hero. 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' (2010) is the third film adapted from C.S. Lewis's fantasy novel series. The journey of the Pevensie children continues, as Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes) are joined by their cousin, Eustace Clarence Scrubb (Will Poulter), on their new adventure. This time they find themselves in Narnia after being sucked into the magical world by a painting. Caspian X (Ben Barnes) and Reepicheep (voice of Bill Nighy) reappear as they and the children head towards the Lone Islands to save Narnia before it succumbs to a disastrous fate. Finally, in 'Night at the Museum' (2006), Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) is a kind-hearted dreamer who always knew that he was destined for greatness, he just never quite knew how. None of his ideas or inventions have panned out so, with a heavy heart, he takes a regular job as a lowly graveyard-shift security guard at the Museum of Natural History in order to provide a more stable life for himself and his ten-year-old son, Nick (Jake Cherry). On his first night on the job, however, he finds that guardianship of the museum is far from stable. At nightfall an Egyptian spell brings the artifacts and wax figures to life. With Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher) charging to war through the hallways, the diorama miniatures embroiled in a deadly feud, and a two-ton Tyrannosaurus Rex nagging to play fetch, Larry turns to a wax replica of President Roosevelt (Robin Williams) for a little advice on keeping things intact.

Initially viewed as an interesting social experiment to discover whether children's lives are predetermined by their backgrounds, the programme developed into something broader and deeper. In this seventh edition, twelve of the children, Tony, Bruce, Sue, Jackie, Suzy, Paul, Simon, Nick, Andrew, John, Lynn, and Neil have reached middle-age and, after all the ups and downs that life has thrown at them, seem to be content with the way their lives have turned out thus far.

Collected episodes of two late '60s gang drama series. 'Spindoe' was a spinoff from an earlier Granada drama 'The Fellows'. At the end of that series, Alec Spindoe (Ray McAnally) had been sent to prison but here he is on the outside yet again. After his time inside, he attempts to pick up where he left off but a bigshot crime Czar and a private dick are dogging his every move. Features six one-hour episodes. 'Big Breadwinner Hog' followed the rise of a career hoodlum, Hog (Peter Egan), against a backdrop of the London gangland. Unapologetic and brutal in its depiction of violence, the series was so ahead of its time that it was eventually pulled from screens before the end of its run - the only programme to have achieved that honour at the time!

British artist Gillian Wearing, winner of the 1997 Turner Prize, uses photography and video to explore the intimacies and complexities of everyday life. Borrowing from popular culture, her work is disturbing and confessional. In 1992 she began the acclaimed series Signs that say what you want them to say and not Signs that say what someone else wants them to say', in which random passers-by are photographed holding messages they've written, such as the mild-mannered young businessman whose sign unexpectedly reads 'I'm Desperate'. Wearing's work borrows from familiar forms of popular culture to produce direct, revealing records of deep-seated human trauma and emotion, often adopting the methods of television documentaries for her 'fly-on-the-wall' view of people's lives. Her videos can be alarming, as in Confess All ... in which masked individuals confess their darkest secrets, or humorous, as in (Slight) Reprise - a sampler of adults playing 'air guitar' in the fantasy rock stadium of their bedrooms. Her art can be disconcerting or uplifting: an honest portrait of the many sides to contemporary life. With exhibitions in Britain, the US, Europe and Japan, Wearing is among the best-known and most internationally recognized of the recent generation of British artists. This is the first publication ever to survey this remarkable young artist's gripping work in its entirety. Russell Ferguson of UCLA's Hammer Museum contextualizes Wearing's work in relation to historical precedents in painting, photography and video art. Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art Donna De Salvo discusses with the artist her collaborative approach towards her work and its subjects. London-based critic John Slyce focuses on Wearing's work 10-16, a remarkable video installation that charts our transition from childhood to adolescence. The artist has selected transcripts from director Michael Apted's acclaimed British television documentary series Seven Up, an important influence on the process Wearing uses in her own work. Published here for the first time in full are the transcripts of the artist's video works.
