The aim of the creators of Remembering Elephants was to produce the most beautiful photographic book on elephants ever made. 65 of the world's top wildlife photographers (including eight overall former winners of Wildlife Photographer of the Year) donated images for the project, including Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting, Jonathan & Angela Scott and Michael Poliza. Inside we follow the typical life of an elephant, from birth through to old age. The book was the brainchild of and produced by wildlife photographer Margot Raggett after she saw a poached elephant in Northern Kenya. Her ambition was to use the book to raise both awareness of elephant poaching and also to raise funds to protect the species. With a foreword by Born Free actress and charity co-founder Virginia McKenna OBE, all profits from the sale of the book go to elephant protection projects. So far more than GBP135,000 has been distributed to projects in Kenya, Mali, Malawi, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe.

In 'For Those in Peril' (1943), Pilot Officer Rawlings (Ralph Michael) is turned down by the RAF for air service on medical grounds and instead joins Air Sea Rescue, helping to pull downed Allied airmen out of the sea.

When the crew of a Boston bomber become stranded at sea in a dinghy, Rawlings and his colleagues become involved in a race against time - and the elements - to save their lives.

The crew of the petrol tanker San Demetrio are left with a near impossible task when she is torpedoed by the Germans. The crew are forced to abandon ship in three lifeboats. Two are picked up by other ships in the convoy, but the third drifts for days until its crew spies the burning San Demetrio on the horizon. Do they board the ship, try to put out its fires and get it back to English shores or do they stay in the drifting lifeboat in the hope of being rescued?

Commander Ericson (Jack Hawkins) has already lost one ship to an enemy attack when he is given command of the frigate Saltash Castle.
