COMPETITION: Win Alex Rider: Season 1 DVD

Alex Rider: Season 1 DVD - Released from 3rd October

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 2 copies on DVD to give away.

From creator Guy Bart and based on the hit books by Anthony Horowitz, this exciting adaptation tells the story of Alex Rider, a London teenager who has unknowingly been trained since childhood for the dangerous world of espionage.

Pressured to help investigate his uncle’s death, and how it connects to the assassination of two high profile billionaires, Alex reluctantly assumes a new identity and goes undercover in a remote boarding school called Point Blanc. Isolated far above the snow line in the French Alps, Point Blanc claims to set the troubled teenage children of the ultra-rich back onto the right track. As Alex digs deeper, he discovers the students are in fact the subjects of a disturbing plan which Alex will have to stop, by any means necessary.

Boasting thrilling action and adventure for the whole family, Alex Rider stars Otto Farrant (Mrs Wilson), Vicky McClure (Trigger Point) and Stephen Dillane (Game of Thrones).

Dazzler Media presents Alex Rider: Series One on DVD from 3rd October.

Alan Rickman's greatest acting moment


Dr. Lazarus expresses his passion for these savings - Galaxy Quest -

For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA protector - "Commander Peter Quincy Taggart" (Tim Allen), "Lt. Tawny Madison" (Sigourney Weaver) and "Dr.Lazarus" (Alan Rickman) - set off on a thrilling and often dangerous mission in space...and then their series was cancelled! Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beam up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives.

What was it like to be a teenager in the Victorian era? Two women, now in their 90's, talk about their younger days in the 1890s. Frances 'Effy' Jones - one of the first women to be trained to use a typewriter, and to take up cycling as a hobby - recalls the life of a young working woman in London. Berta Ruck, a romantic novelist, remembers her formative years at art school, and the culture shock she experienced after moving from her secluded home in rural Wales to the muddy hustle and bustle in the heart of Victorian London.

Together they provide a fascinating oral history of 1890s England.

This clip is from Yesterday's Witness: Two Victorian Girls, originally broadcast 8 June, 1970.
