An off-beat, minimalist thriller from idiosyncratic director Maxwell Munden, The House in the Woods stars B-movie stalwarts Patricia Roc and Michael Gough as a trendy couple who get in over their head in their quest for a little peace and quiet. Though The House in the Woods is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio, there are still some issues with the soundtrack. While they have been corrected as much as possible viewers will notice intermittent audio issues. Geoffrey Carter a highly strung author suffering from writer's block petulantly insists to his wife that they flee their annoying neighbours and move somewhere more peaceful. They find a delightfully remote woodland cottage which the owner a melancholic, widowed artist with a Larry Adler fixation is happy to rent them at a pittance. All too soon they realise that something is not quite right with their landlord and, much to Geoffrey's horror, he realises that the plot of his new murder mystery is being played out for real...

David Attenborough's books and broadcasts have opened the incredible world of natural history to millions of viewers and listeners. Zoo Quest for a Dragon takes us back to one of his earliest projects, when the BBC and London Zoo joined forces on several animal-collecting expeditions. This behind-the-scenes look at how the first programmes were made reveals moments of hardship on horseback, canoe, and in a wreck of a jeep through swamp, desert, and rainforest. Attenborough tells of danger on the crew's hazardous boat trip with a gun-smuggling captain and the terror of erupting volcanoes. He also depicts for the listener some of the incredible sights he and his team witnessed, breathtaking butterflies, taking tea with Charlie the orangutan, and the voyage to the little-known island of Komodo to capture the elusive Komodo Dragon. David Attenborough's early adventures are sometimes life-threatening, often hilarious, and always totally absorbing. The warmth and enthusiasm that have made him a broadcasting legend are instantly apparent here as he recounts this magical journey. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Attenborough.

Ten million daily viewers loved her as Liz Chandler on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Yet while the cameras rolled and the fictional plotline for Days unfolded each day, Loring was quietly wrestling with her own real-life dramas - the diagnosis of her young son's diabetes, the unraveling of her marriage, and a nagging inner voice from childhood that told her something was wrong. Coincidence Is God's Way of Remaining Anonymous is Loring's spiritual exploration of how coincidence helped her make sense of life's challenges and uncertainties. Coincidence helped her raise on million dollars for diabetes research; it arrived in the form of mysterious letters during her separation and eventual divorce from actor-writer Alan Thicke; and it helped her discover and then heal from the trauma of long-forgotten childhood sexual abuse. It also brought her a chance encounter with the man she is married to today. With eloquence and humor, Loring takes readers on a quest for a deeper understanding of life's journey and the role coincidence plays in all of our lives, revealing that even the most difficult circumstances can be beneficial. Her experiences may be just the evidence readers need to begin watching more closely what they are attracting and what they are running from in their own lives. While coincidences may appear to come out of the blue, Loring suggests that we can all play a starring role in their appearance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gloria Loring.

In Had I Known, the former host of Good Morning America, health advocate, international speaker, mother of seven, grandmother of one, and New York Times best-selling author Joan Lunden speaks candidly about her battle against breast cancer, her quest to learn about it and teach others, and the transformative effect it has had on her life. With a large extended family counting on her, giving up was not an option. After announcing her diagnosis of stage two triple negative breast cancer on Good Morning America, people all over the country rallied around Joan as she went into warrior mode. Joan appeared on the cover of People bald, showing the world her brave resolve and that breast cancer does not need to define you. Joan's illness has changed her in profoundly unexpected ways and has redefined her values and, most of all, her health. Following a new clean and healthy way of eating, Joan became her best advocate by taking control of her nutrition, which helped combat the adverse side effects of chemotherapy like a warrior. Uncharacteristically vulnerable, irreverent, and straight from the heart, Had I Known is a deeply personal and powerful story of pain, persistence, and perseverance in which Joan openly evaluates her decision to go public with her battle, shaving her head, wig shopping, reconnecting with her viewers, rediscovering her purpose, and ultimately realizing that sometimes you have to look back to move forward. 1.

On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty, to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. - Scout OathTo most, a Boy Scout is the personification of righteousness, self-sufficiency, and adaptability. In contemporary culture, particularly in the West, the stock images of Boy Scouts are associated with irreproachable conduct, so much so that they have been inordinately branded as Goody Two-Shoes.For the most part, the cliché is well-intentioned and somewhat endearing. For such an interpretation, viewers can refer to the character Russell from the Disney-Pixar movie Up, a Junior Wilderness Explorer who embarks on a quest to secure the “Assisting the Elderly” badge. The nervous, but delightfully bubbly Scout, was quick to capture the hearts of millions upon millions around the world.On the other end of the same spectrum is the stereotype that reduces them to unimaginative conformists, bookish narks, and blind followers. Many Americans have heard the phrase, “He is such a Boy Scout,” in passing, perhaps said with a scoff or followed by a dramatic eyeroll. The Boy Scout trope is frequently woven into movies, TV shows, and other works of fiction as one-dimensional characters. More often than not, they are polite to a fault and depicted as obsessive patch collectors, the hackneyed antithesis of the rebellious protagonist. While most know better, it bears noting that the Boy Scouts are an entity far more well-rounded and proficient than they are often given credit for in America. A reported 85 percent of FBI agents are former Boy Scouts, and NASA reported that of the two dozen men who landed on the moon, 20 were former Scouts, including all three members of Apollo 13 and 11 of the 12 who walked on the moon. Of course, this isn't to say that the organization was the sole reason behind their successes, but these sta 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Gallagher.
