a Beautiful Scottish Evening
What a wonderful Scottish DVD ! The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra
have rarely sounded more powerful and the new arrangements of
great Scots songs make one realise how exceptional these traditional
songs really are. The trio of tenors sing with tremendous passion
and gusto and make a splendid job of both the grandiose numbers
like A Man's a Man and the intimate ballads; the beautiful Loch
Lomond is so very touching. Coupled with great shots of the
fireworks above the floodlit Edinburgh Castle, this recording
is a great evening of Scottish entertainment. Scottish DVDS.
Ramsay's Football Hell
TV’s foul mouthed celebrity chef comes out of the kitchen
and into the terraces with the ultimate compendium of footballing
foul-ups, soccer slip-ups and all around balls ups. With clips
from the archives right up to the present day, Gordon proves
he’s just as much of an expert on the pitch as he is in
the kitchen. He’s also just about as intolerant of mistakes,
which makes watching this carnival of the terminally stupid
even funnier. You’ll never look at your Premiership favourites
the same way again after you get to laugh at their darkest moments
again and again.

(Special Edition)  A stupendous historical saga, Braveheart
won five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for
star Mel Gibson. He plays William Wallace, a 13th-century Scottish
commoner who unites the various clans against a cruel English
King, Edward the Longshanks. The scenes of hand-to-hand combat
are brutally violent, but they never glorify the bloodshed.
There is such enormous scope to this story that it works on
a smaller, more personal scale as well, essaying love and loss,
patriotism and passion. Extremely moving, it reveals Gibson
as a multitalented performer and remarkable director with an
eye for detail and an understanding of human emotion.

to him, he continues his search in the hope that he will find
the missing girl. His perseverance ultimately affords him an
answer to all his (and our) questions; but there is a price
to pay. Scottish DVDs.
