For over three decades BERNARD MANNING was one of Britain's favourite comedians. Pushing the boundaries of humour beyond the accepted norm, he was loved, and by some, disliked in equal measure. One thing for sure, he was very funny and incredibly popular.
His adult humour wasn't seen too much on television but he appeared for may years on programmes such as "The Comedians" and "The Wheel Tappers and Shunters Social Club" with slightly more watered down material!
On this fantastic compilation we have the best of his adult humour, recorded at his own club THE EMBASSY in Manchester and THE CIRCUS TAVERN in London. So expect adult language and jokes and gags that are uncensored and ungagged!
Take the High Road Volume 17: Episodes 97-102 of the long-running Scottish soap opera. Take the High Road was one of the longest running shows on UK television.

In fifty years of broadcasting, Sir David Attenborough has travelled the globe to document the living world in all its wonder. Now, in the landmark series First Life, 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 Earth's history, half a billion years ago, when animals first appeared in the oceans. From the first animals that moved, to the first predators that killed and the first legs that walked on land.
First Life is told with stunning photography, cutting-edge visual effects and the captivating charm of the world's favourite naturalist. This is a story that can only be told now because in the last twenty years, stunning fossil finds at sites across the world have transformed our understanding of the first life forms, and the latest technology allows us to in photorealistic CGI the creatures that evolved the traits and tools that allow all animals, including us, to survive to this day.

The Best of Soul Music Soul had its roots in the 1950s when two forms of African-American music came together in a rather unlikely alliance. These were the pure yet emotional gospel sounds of the Southern Baptist church, and the more worldly, rocking approach of rhythm & blues. In 1954 Ray Charles took an old gospel song and gave it an R & B makeover to come up with I Got A Woman. For many that's where soul began. This compilation is a celebration of the best of early Soul Music.

This was Alan Clark's first volume of diaries and the only one he recorded himself. As such it is a unique historical record of the man and his work. He wrote one of the most forthright and honest political diaries ever, being a warts and all picture of the Thatcher era. The colourful language is very adult and is frequently laugh out loud funny. His proximity to power gave him a clear view of all the manoeuvrings and gossip within Westminster and Whitehall, and he was never one to hold back on his opinions. Over 3 CDs, he also touches on his private life, Saltwood and his passion fo animals.
Comedian, writer and actor, whose stand-up is full of surrealism, nonsense and sharp wit. Milton Jones style is a quick-fire barrage of one-liners delivered with a goggle-eyed stare.

He was the winner of the Perrier Best Newcomer Award in 1996, and was subsequently nominated for the main prize. He received the Time Out 'Best Comedy Performer' prize in 2003 and has been nominated for the British Comedy Awards. A comedy legend and one of the funniest men in the country.
'Two stories to delight young children read by Bill Oddie. In the first, we learn about time, through the story of Reginald J Wolf, who keeps missing out on the fun because he can't tell the time! The second introduces children to the world of animals, told through stories and songs.'

Based on Victor Hugo s classic novel, Les Miserables, the musical has become a worldwide phenomenon. This recording traces the journey, from a modest Paris production, into a multi-award winning show, and then to an Oscar winning film. Read by Peter Polycarpou, one of the original RSC cast members in the opening at London s Barbican Theatre, this marvellous story takes us behind the scenes of both the stage show and the film to meet the writers, producers and actors. Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackson and Anne Hathaway each share their thoughts on the film, the casting process and the actual filming.
