'''I can read it all by myself'' is the Beginner Books motto, and behind it is an understanding of how important it is for children to take pride and pleasure in their early reading. Beginner Books have been designed to appeal directly to children through the use of humour, rhyme, and bright pictures that can be ''read'' even by the non-reading child. Some Beginner Books are simple stories, others are hilarious nonsense: both types have been designed to give children confidence and make them want to go on reading. Ghosts and witches, vampires and mummies -- these characters are as popular with children as riddles are, so the combination of SPOOKY RIDDLES is a winner.

'Boat that rocked is an ensemble comedy, where the romance is between the young people of the 60''s, and pop music. It''s about a band of DJs that captivate Britain, playing the music that defines a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, prefers jazz.In 1966 - British pop music''s finest era - the BBC played just 2 hours of rock and roll every week. But pirate radio played rock and pop from the high seas 24 hours a day. And 25 million people - over half the population of Britain - listened to the pirates every single day.Recently expelled from school, Carl (Tom Sturridge) has been sent by his mother to find some direction in life by visiting his godfather Quentin. However, Quentin is the boss of Radio Rock, a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea, populated by an eclectic crew of rock ''n'' roll DJs.They are led by The Count (Philip Seymour Hoffman) - big, brash, American, god of the airwaves, and totally in love with the music. He''s faithfully backed up by his co-broadcasters Dave (Nick Frost) - ironic, intelligent and cruelly funny Simon (Chris O''Dowd) - super-nice and searching for true love Midnight Mark (Tom Wisdom) - enigmatic, handsome and man of few words Wee Small Hours Bob - the late night DJ, whose hobbies are folk music and drugs Thick Kevin (Tom Brooke) - possessor of the smallest intelligence known to mankind On-The-Hour John (Will Adamsdale) - the newsreader and Angus ''The Nut'' Nutsford (Rhys Darby) - possibly the most annoying man in Britain.Life on the North Sea is eventful.

Gavin (Rhys Ifans) returns from his drug tour of America to his rightful position as greatest DJ in Britain and, in doing so, clashes with the Count. And Carl discovers the opposite sex and who his real father is.Meanwhile, pirate stations have come to the attention of government minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh) who is out for the blood of these lawbreakers. In an era when the stuffy corridors of power stifle anything approaching youthful exuberance, Dormandy seizes the chance to score a political goal and The Marine Broadcasting Offences Act is passed in an effort to outlaw the pirates and remove their ghastly influence from the land once and for all.What results is a literal storm on the high seas. With Radio Rock in peril, it''s devoted fans rally together and stage an epic Dunkirk-style hundred boat rescue to save their DJ heroes. Some things may come to an end, but rock ''n'' roll never dies.'

'The film explores how the orderly, reassuringly clear worlds Enid Blyton created within her stories contrasted with the complexity of her own personal life. It sheds light on the ambitious and driven - but as yet unpublished - young woman, from the development of her rich imagination against the adversity of an imperfect childhood, two World Wars, and a first marriage ending in divorce - to household name.

Originally transmitted between 1979 and 1981, the plays provided an early showcase for the bittersweet, distinctly Northern humour and mastery of dourly comic, sometimes poignant dialogue that has made her one of Britain''s best-loved and most consistently successful performers. Included is the highly acclaimed Talent, commissioned in 1978 by the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield and the play which first brought Victoria Wood to the attention of Granada Television the productions also reunited Wood and long-time friend Julie Walters, and marked the beginning of their phenomenally successful television partnership.

'Danny Reed (Martin Freeman) is directionless and dissatisfied with his lot in life. Working at a DIY superstore, he vents his frustrations on the customers, when not pining for his co-worker Fiona (Angela Griffin) or foisting his encyclopedic knowledge of useless information onto loyal friend Pete (Marshall Lancaster). He really is a world away from the successful, vivacious Veronica (Rachael Stirling), whose job as a glamorous fashion journalist provides her with a well-stocked bank account and an even better stocked social calendar. Worshipped by her devoted boyfriend Jay (Paterson Joseph), Veronica seems to have it all. So when a freak accident traps the mismatched strangers in each others bodies the results aren''t pretty, but they are hilarious.BOY MEETS GIRL is a sharp, witty comedy-drama from the pen of new writing talent David Allison. The four-part series invests the fantastical gender-swap scenario with a surprising creditability thanks, in large part, to the central performances of Freeman and Stirling. As Danny and Veronica struggle with their new identities they begin to discover new truths about themselves. But besides learning to walk in high heels or being forced to ''slum it'' with the working classes, the pair long to get back to their own bodies and ultimately, their old lives... getting someone to believe them, however, is only hurdle number one!'

'Grease was a phenomenal hit with its target teenage audience when it was released in 1977. The songs dominated the pop charts and brought heady success for its lead actors, John Travolta (Danny) and Olivia Newton-John (Sandy) despite the fact that--as with their energetic co-stars--their own teenage years were some way behind them. As they seize the chance to relive their schooldays, their verve and enthusiasm explodes from the screen. The real class, though, comes from Stockard Channing as feisty Rizzo and, in a couple of cameos, wisecracking silver screen actresses from yesteryear Eve Arden and Joan Blondel.Based on the 1972 stage show and adding several new numbers, Grease is at heart a rites-of-passage movie with plenty of feel-good moments and a euphoric buzz. You''re the One That I Want , Hopelessly Devoted to You and Summer Nights became the soundtrack for a generation of high-school students on the cusp of adulthood. Today, it looks like a pastiche of those 1950s Connie Francis rock & roll beach films. But the steady stream of double entendres and knowing body language render it more accessible to the less innocent late 1970s. It''s overwhelming nostalgia for anyone in the vicinity of 40.The 25th anniversary special edition of Grease rolls back the years: the 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen presentation transports you instantly back to fifth-form heaven in the local fleapit. The Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound ensures that the songs--ever the staple of MOR radio--complete the nostalgia trip with real zip. The main extra is a short series of fond reminiscences from the actors and director Randal Kleiser, actually filmed for the 20th anniversary. --Piers Ford'

Disability is one of television''s last taboos and Cast Offs tackles it head on, with a script stuffed with sex and politically incorrect jokes by writers from Skins, Shameless and The Thick of It.

'Over thirty years ago, French documentary maker Nicolas Philibert worked as an assistant to film director Ren Allio on a movie version of an influential book compiled by Michel Foucault: I, Pierre Rivire was a reconstruction of three apparently senseless murders in 1835 by a seemingly half-witted, young Norman peasant. The state officials and middle-class figures were played by actors (one of them Philibert''s father) and the peasants by local, working-class nonprofessionals. Philibert returned to the old locations to reminisce with the now middle-aged or elderly actors about the way it affected their lives. Most of the them have nothing but happy memories, but slowly it appears that some of the participants had their own issues with the law, power and mental health.'

'Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic, Oceans Eleven) and celebrated actor Benicio Del Toro (The Usual Suspects, 21 Grams) have joined forces to create one of the most uncompromising film projects of all time, detailing the life of one of the Twentieth Century''s most controversial figures: Ernesto Che Guevara. Spread over two explosive movies, CHE: PART ONE and PART TWO have gained notoriety for their unflinching, graphic and incredibly realistic depiction of guerrilla warfare in all its horror and glory. Part One follows Guevaras adventurous journey from his beginnings as a young, politically active physician to becoming one of the most feared and respected militant revolutionaries in South America. Meticulously re-enacting Ches relentless quest to destroy the Batista regime and bring freedom to Cuba, Part One marches towards an unforgettable, heart pounding, cinematic climax. Part Two of the Guevara saga takes us to the height of the Cold War, a time of espionage and subterfuge, and into the dark, violent extremes and merciless terrain of the Bolivian jungle- a journey from which Che Guevara would never return.

'From the early stages of his career across five decades to his final film, Fritz Lang built a trilogy of paranoiac thrillers focused on an entity who began as a criminal mastermind, and progressed into something more amorphous: fear itself, embodied only by a name Dr. Mabuse. For the first time on home video, all three of Fritz Lang''s Mabuse films have been collected for one package, in their complete and restored forms. 1: Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler. [Dr. Mabuse, the Gambler.] (1922) Lang''s two-part, nearly 5-hour silent epic detailing the rise and fall of Dr. Mabuse in Weimar-era Berlin. 2: Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse [The Testament of Dr. Mabuse] (1933) a tour-de-force thriller rife with supernatural elements, all converging around an attempt by the now-institutionalised Mabuse (or someone acting under his name... and possibly his will) to organise an ''Empire of Crime''. 3: Die 1000 Augen des Dr. Mabuse [The 1000 Eyes of Dr. Mabuse] (1960) Fritz Lang''s final film, in which hypnosis, clairvoyance, surveillance, and machine-guns come together for a whiplash climax that answers the question: Who''s channelling Mabuse''s methods in the Cold War era? The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fritz Lang''s complete Mabuse trilogy a cornerstone in the work of one of cinema''s all-time greatest directors.'

'With its witty dialogue, sophisticated character development, and classic slapstick situations, Frasier is perhaps best described as the thinking man''s Friends. Taking centre stage is pompous radio psychiatrist Dr Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer), whose phone-in show serves as much an outlet for his neuroses, as it does a public service for the people of Seattle. Clever intersecting storylines feature a brilliant ensemble cast, including his prim and proper brother Niles (David Hyde Pierce), their gruff retired-cop father Martin (John Mahoney), live-in home care worker Daphne (Jane Leeves), brassy radio producer Roz (Teri Gilpin), and a charismatic Jack Russell terrier named Eddie, with whom Frasier has regular staring contests but never wins. This collection includes the show''s pilot episode through to its eleventh series finale, and every episode in between.'
'For nearly four decades Benny Hill reigned supreme as the king of bawdy humour on British television. Of his body of work, it is the shows that he did for Thames television in the 1970''s for which he is best remembered, with their combination of farce, risque jokes and beautiful ladies. It is these shows that made him a global superstar - topping the ratings in the US also. With his ''three stooges'': Henry McGee, Bob Todd and Jack Wright, Benny Hill produced a handful of ''specials'' every year - all of which were critically acclaimed ratings toppers.This fantastic compendium brings together each of the annuals through out the ''70''s and is a must for any hardened fan of the great man.'

Starting from the uplifting Oscar Winning original to the critically acclaimed concluding chapter, witness the rise and reign of a true warrior, from small-time, down-and-out boxer to a true peoples champion! -M.F. Rocky This is the film that catapulted Sylvester Stallone into the international Spotlight and launched one of the most successful series of films in movie history. Rocky won the 1976 Academy Award for Best picture and two nominations for Stallone for leading actor and writer. This is the story of a loser, a two bit boxer from Philadelphia, who gets a second chance in life by being offered an impossible shot at the heavyweight title. Stallone''s performance is as powerful as his character''s punches in the ring. This is one of the most exciting action movies you will ever see. Rocky II It''s the rematch of the century as Rocky Balboa takes on Apollo Creed in this powerful follow-up to one of the most acclaimed movies in film history. After club fighter Rocky Balboa (Stallone) goes the distance with the world heavyweight champion, boxing fans clamour for a rematch. But Rocky, having sustained massive injuries in the bout, announces his retirement. Though he tries to make a new life for himself, Rocky realises that he can''t escape his true calling. The ring beckons once more, and the ''Italian Stallion'' must prepare for the fight of his life.

With Creed''s help, Rocky strives to regain the eye of the tiger before confronting Lang in a grueling rematch for the world heavyweight championship. Rocky IV East meets West when Rocky takes on a vicious Soviet fighter who literally killed his last opponent! Sylvester Stallone writes, directs and stars in this war between nations, in which the only battle is fought in a boxing ring. Rocky Balboa (Stallone) proudly holds the world heavyweight boxing championship, but a new challenger has stepped forward: Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a six-foot-four, 261-pound fighter who has the backing of the Soviet Union. This time, Rocky''s training regimen takes him to icy Siberia, where he prepares for a globally televised match in the heart of Moscow. But nothing can truly prepare him for what he''s about to face - a powerfully charged fight to the finish, in which he must defend not only himself, but also the honor of his country! Rocky V The Italian Stallion rediscovers his roots in this exciting, thrill-packed drama that reunites Sylvester Stallone with the Oscar-winning director of the original Rocky. Upon returning home from his latest triumph, Rocky Balboa (Stallone) learns that all his money has been lost by an unscrupulous financial advisor. To make matters worse, his fight-related injuries force his retirement from the ring. So Rocky, his wife Adrian (Talia Shire) and his son Rocky Jr. (Sage Stallone) move to their old, low-rent neighborhood in South Philadelphia. There, the fighter must resolve the deep-rooted resentment held by his son, a bitterness that grows when Rocky trains Tommy Gunn (Tommy Morrison), a young boxer who soon rises to national prominence. When Tommy turns against his mentor and publicly taunts him, Rocky knows he mus'
