In The Shadow Of The Moon (DVD) Stockists

Between 1968 and 1972, the world watched in awe each time an American spacecraft voyaged to the Moon. This documentary, presented by 'Apollo 13' director Ron Howard, brings together the surviving crew members from every single Apollo mission which flew to the Moon, and allows them to tell their story in their own words. These fascinating first-hand testimonies are interwoven with visually stunning archive material which has been re-mastered from the original NASA film footage. Synopsis America's quest to put a man on the moon, while both fascinating and inspiring, has been well-covered on film, perhaps most notably in "From the Earth to the Moon" and "Apollo 13". Add to that a space program that by the early 2000s ranked near "Abscam" in terms of public interest, and it's easy to see why the documentary In The Shadow Of The Moon might be a tough sell. Yet this simple, stylish look at the Apollo space program is a quietly powerful rumination on the nature of patriotism, heroism, and humanity. In In The Shadow Of The Moon, director David Sington utilises a narrator-less structure which intercuts stunning stock footage with insightful commentary from the surviving astronauts who walked on the moon. There are no experts, no voiceovers, and no recreations; it's a style that works quite well, recalling the work of Errol Morris. While the space shots and behind-the-scenes footage of NASA operations are fascinating, the astronauts--including Buzz Aldrin, Dave Scott and Alan Bean--are a revelation. Variously witty, heartfelt, modest and humbled when discussing their journeys into space, it's easy to understand why these men were heroes to a generation. Perhaps the most powerful aspect of the documentary is the way in which the viewer is reminded of how genuinely stunning the Apollo mission was--not only for the United States, but for the whole world. One need not be reminded that 1969 was a tumultuous year for Earth, and that Neil Armstrong's famous one small step for man literally united the planet, giving true credence to the latter half of his famous statement. The Shadow Of The Moon expertly recreates that moon-landing moment, without a shred of excess patriotism, pretence or sentiment. Running Time: 100 minutes Region: Region 2 Subtitles: English Release Date: 31 Mar. 2008

The Best of Spike Milligan (DVD)

Arguably the greatest comedian to have emerged in post-war Britain, Spike...

Arguably the greatest comedian to have emerged in post-war Britain, Spike Milligan came into television from the seminal radio comedy The Goons. Spike's TV output was to lose none of that show's anarchic, surreal and devastatingly funny humour, as his series Q (1968-1980) and There's A Lot Of It About (1982) broke every known television and comedy rule in sketch after sketch of nonsensical brilliance. This compilation captures the highlights of those series, including such classic sketches as The Eurovision Joke Contest, Spike as the singing Viking Maiden, insects auditioning for a David Attenborough series and much more assorted lunacy from the world of an indisputable comic genius. From the Back Cover Some remember him from The Goons, some through his army autobiographies or his poems, but it is his work on television that has stamped Spike Milligan's surreal, chaotic and devastatingly funny humour...
