Title: Clarkson: The Italian Job

Title: David Attenboroughs First Life
Description: In fifty years of broadcasting, David Attenborough has travelled the globe to document the living world in all its wonder. Now, in this landmark series, he completes his journey by going back in time to the very roots of the tree of life, in search of the very first animals. From the fog bound coastline of Newfoundland to the deserts of North Africa and the rainforests of Queensland, Attenborough finds evidence in fossils and living animals of an extraordinary period in Earths history, half a billion years ago, when animals first appeared in the oceans. From the first eyes that saw, to the first predators that killed and the first legs that walked on land, these were creatures that evolved the traits and tools that allow all animals, including us, to survive to this day.
Stunning photography and state of the art visual effects combine with the captivating charm of the worlds favourite naturalist. Bringing together fossil finds from the last few years that have transformed our understanding of early life forms with photorealistic CGI technology, First Life brings these animals and their environments back to life in brilliant detail.
Title: Planet Earth: Special Edition
Description: The latest David Attenborough nature documentary series, shot in HD. This ambitious 2006 series, described as ‘the definitive look at the diversity of our planet’ was the first ever to be filmed entirely in high definition. Every episode but the first one looks at one of the Earth’s natural habitats and examines its local features, together with the breadth of fauna found there. While filming it, the crew caught several firsts – places and animals never before caught on camera. The fact that it was co-funded by Discovery Channel, BBC and Japan’s NHK, took 5 years to make and was shot in over 200 locations is apparent and the series is everything you’d expect from Sir David Attenborough and his team if they were unconstrained by budget or practicality.
Title: The Deep
Description: With an all-star cast, including James Nesbitt, Minnie Driver and Goran Visnjic, this gripping thriller follows the crew of an oceanographic submarine as they search the deepest, furthest, loneliest place on earth.
In the state-of-the-art research submarine Orpheus, Captain Frances Kelly leads a team of scientists deep below the Arctic ice. They are following the path of an earlier, disastrous expedition; searching the final frontiers of Earth for unknown and remarkable life forms, attempting to find the solution to the world’s escalating energy crisis.
Enduring crushing pressure, boiling vent gases, freezing temperatures and total darkness, the Orpheus arrives at the Lomonosov Ridge, an enormous area of sea bed which is disputed territory, currently under the United Nations’ jurisdiction. Nobody comes here. But there is something else out here: something huge and bewildering. And, as the Orpheus crew struggle for survival and attempt to unravel the mystery, they uncover secrets more terrifying than they ever could have imagined…

DVD Special Features:
- Matt Damon Plays Rugby: Turning a Hollywood Star into a Rugby Player
- Invictus Music Trailer
Description: Hierdie dokumentêre reeks is ‘n intense onthulling van ‘n geheime oorlog. In 26 episodes vertel dit die verhaal van een van Afrika se langste kon? ikte, wat van 1966 tot 1989 uitgespeel het in Noord-Namibië (toe Suidwes-Afrika), en Suid-Angola, die sogenaamde “Operasionele Gebied” of “Grens”. Vir die eerste keer ooit word beeldmateriaal en foto’s ongesensor aangebied, wat die ware verhaal van Suid-Afrika se bosoorlog kaalkop vertel.
Die reeks tref die kyker soms soos ‘n hou in die maag met ‘n intieme, dikwels skokkende, maar gebalanseerde kyk op ‘n sleuteltydperk in die geskiedenis van Afrika. GRENSOORLOG neem die kyker op ‘n reis wat begin in die bloedige November van 1975 met onafhanklikheid in Angola, en voortstu tot die epiese botsing tussen Kubaanse en Suid-Afrikaanse troepe by Cuito Cuanavale in 1988. Langs die pad word stemme gehoor wat te lank stilgemaak is: van gewone SAW- en Swapo-troepe tot generaals en politici aan albei kante, van Russiese tot Kubaanse tot Amerikaanse spelers. Die sprekers breek deur die stiltes en die sensuur en praat uit die hart uit. Alle taboes word uit die pad gevee. GRENSOORLOG lê ‘n bloedige magspel bloot, met al die ware lewensdrama wat daarmee saamgaan.

Title: Clarkson: Duel
Description: Welcome to my new DVD, Duel – it’s all about challenges and some big questions. Which car makes the most smoke while going sideways – a Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce or a Vauxhall VXR8 Bathurst S? What is best at drifting? – the Jaguar XKR, the Lotus Evora, Audi’s R8 V10 or BMW’s M3? To find out, I globe-trot from sun-drenched Spain to Silverstone via Oxfordshire and Swindon.
There is serious science too. Can The Stig drift a car while wearing wellies? Can I corner in flippers? Can Formula One ace Anthony Davidson slide a car – in ice skates? Who is the best at off road driving? – Newswoman Kate Silverton, rugby’s Matt Dawson, singer Ronan Keating – or me? Which is fastest – a car or a man? Find out as the Aston Martin v12 Vantage sprints against flying rugby winger Tom Varndell in a 100 metre drag race.
And at last, The Stig goes head to helmet against The Tiff. The white-suited racing driver and I join forces against Vicki Butler-Henderson and Tiff Needell. There’s carnage in an auto-test and I push the 190mph Aston Martin DBS Volante to the limit against Vicki in a £150,000 Ferrari California. I also pick a Ford Focus RS for a road race against his’Stigness in a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Who will win?
There’s more. What will hit the ground first from 150 feet up a penny or a Ford Scorpio? Can the Stig ride a bicycle? And can a man with a rubbish car get it home using no fuel at all. just a catapult. Meanwhile, there’s a terrible accident with a Morris Marina and a piano and everything else explodes including Ronan Keating.
