Starring highly popular comedian Stanley Lupino (the film is based on his own stage play), directed by his brother Lupino Lane and a hit production at London's Gaiety Theatre, The Love Race is a delightful musical comedy film based around the fierce rivalry between two motor manufacturers – and the romance that develops between the daughter of one and the son of the other... Released in 1931, and co-starring silent-era veteran Jack Hobbs and Hitchcock heroine Dorothy Boyd – and including rare racing footage of British sports cars of the period – The Love Race is presented in a brand-new transfer from the original elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.

A lavish costume drama from the early 1970s, The Strauss Family dramatises the story of the remarkable musical dynasty. Spanning 75 years and encompassing both intimate human drama and political turmoil, it charts the rise of the elder Johann Strauss from humble beginnings to glittering success, through tragedy, intrigue, marriages and scandalous love affairs – and intense rivalry between father and son. Conceived by world-famous tenor Murray Dickie and earning a BAFTA nomination for Anne Stallybrass, it features some of the composers' best-loved music as well as several rediscovered pieces, while authentic choreography and sumptuous reconstructions evoke the splendour of 19th-century Vienna. Recorded as eight episodes, on its original transmission in 1972 the opening two episodes were combined, losing half an hour in the process; this set presents the series as intended, with all eight episodes complete and uncut.

High school reporter Sherri "Bax" Baxter is content being an outsider, with a reputation as a nosy busybody among the students of Jericho High. Instead of friendships, she focuses on objective journalistic integrity, because it will get her out of the dead-end Texas oil town and into a prestigious journalism school, and she's pretty sure she's found her big story. A new girl, Molly, has come to town with a mysterious sideways grin, a bolero hat, a well-loved guitar case, and the musical talent of legendary blues man Stevie Ray Vaughan. Two of the school's rival rock groups need her for the upcoming Battle of the Bands, but Molly has a plan to cherry-pick the best musicians out of each band to form her own super group. Both bands engage in an increasingly dangerous rivalry ranging from theft and vandalism to assault and kidnapping. Who better to tag along with Molly and get every juicy tidbit than the intrepid school snoop? She might even make a few friends along the way. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Summer Jo Swaine.

A tale of murder, artistic rivalry and literary trickery; a Chinese puzzle of a novel where nothing is quite what it seems; a narrator whose agenda is artful and subtle; a narrative that pulls you in and plays an elegant game with you. The Dream Archipelago is a vast network of islands. The names of the islands are different depending on who you talk to, their very locations seem to twist and shift. Some islands have been sculpted into vast musical instruments, others are home to lethal creatures, others the playground for high society. Hot winds blow across the archipelago and a war fought between two distant continents is played out across its waters. The Islanders serves both as an untrustworthy but enticing guide to the islands, an intriguing, multi-layered tale of a murder and the suspect legacy of its appealing but definitely untrustworthy narrator. It shows Christopher Priest at the height of his powers and illustrates why he has remained one of the country's most prized novelists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Maloney.

Liam Gallaher is a man of controversy, arguments, rivalry and sensationalism. "Fans want to see their stars shining," says Liam, "We play the game and give the fans what they want and Oasis is a real rock n' roll band". When brother Noel gave up his roadie job with Inspiral Carpets and joined the band, it was the turning point for Oasis - although Liam would never allow you to say that - and the greatest music industry sensation since the Beatles were born. Great music and outrageous behaviour is the trademark for the band - even to the point of being arrested for fighting with crew and police onboard a ferry. The outlandish reputation was enhanced even further when Liam and Noel started fighting during an NME interview, and then Oasis were banned from a chain of hotels because they smashed up rooms. This is not a music release by the artist or record company and sound quality may vary. In this exclusive and unique audiobiography Liam reveals details about his personal life, the fights, the touring life on the road, the chemistry between him and his brother Noel, his musical inspiration, the competition with Pop's BLUR and what makes him and Oasis different.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant Oklahoma!
'I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.' The four March sisters couldn't be more different: Meg, the eldest, is dutiful and patient; Jo is adventurous, with dreams of being a great writer; shy, musical Beth is the peacemaker; and headstrong Amy likes the finer things in life. They may not always get along, but with their father away in the Civil War and their mother struggling to make ends meet, the sisters have never needed each other more. Together, the girls navigate growing up - from first love to sibling rivalry, loss and marriage. Whatever comes their way, they know they can rely on each other.
