Status: New - Opened in 1837 and inspired by the Pere Lachaise in Paris, West Norwood became known as the Millionaire's Cemetery. But within its opulent grounds there are twelve buried names whose currency is language: these are the dead poets of West Norwood. In the first instalment of a project to map the Magnificent Seven, Chris McCabe takes us off the main track of London writing and asks why the works of Hopkins, Tennyson and Browning are still read above those buried in this suburban enclave of South London. Join McCabe on the hunt for a great lost poet, as he walks the winding Gothic paths of the Cemetery and makes an unexpected discovery underground in the catacombs. The stories of those loved and dismissed by Charles Dickens are carefully uncovered; those who influenced Lewis Carroll and Winston Churchill; and those whose burial in the common ground has not been enough to silence them. A startling and original work of literary detection, In the Catacombs is written across a range of forms - prose, Gothic fiction, criticism and poetry - and places West Norwood Cemetery and its dead poets back into the foreground of the London psyche.

Dave MacLeod Extraordinary Climbs - featuring The First Great Climb and Climbing....No Limits! Today Britain's great crags have been thoroughly explored by successive generations - so what remains for today's bold, ambitious rock athletes? From the makers of the award-winning Great Climb, two outstanding films showcasing one of the world's best climbers Dave MacLeod. - The First Great Climb is a moving tribute to three almost forgotten men who, in 1867, made the perilous sea crossing to the uninhabited Hebridean island of Handa just off the west coast of Sutherland. Their mission was to be the first people to stand on the top of an isolated pillar of rock, the Great Stac. Failure would have meant certain death. Success, won against all the odds, gave birth to modern climbing. - In Climbing... No Limits! Dave MacLeod and Alan Cassidy travel south of the Border to the heart of the English climbing scene. In an astonishing week they attempt two innovative first ascents. One is deep underground, in Jingling Pot, North Yorkshire. After a nerve wracking descent Dave and Alan must inch their way up slimy, wet rock to the light. The second climb is in the huge entrance to Peak Cavern in Derbyshire where they are the first to be allowed to attempt a sport climb in this historic location. As seen on BBC Scotland. Double DVD. Approximate running time 120 minutes.A perfect gift. Secure your purchase by clicking the shopping basket button at the top right of the screen now.

Sol Stone has remained an underground figure in the New York magic scene for more than 50 years. Although many of his routines have been published in various magazines and books, very few magicians have ever seen him perform. Sol's magic is quick, direct and visual. His technique is superb and he has a "soft touch" which helps make everything he does seem very magical.This video features some of his favorite routines with coins, chips, pins, sponge balls, ropes, balls, and finger rings.Includes performances and explanations to:Fusion Fission: Two quarters change into a half-dollar and back to two quarters. Tenkai Quarters: A quarter magically jumps from one hand to the other. Vanishing Eagle: A quarter placed into your fist vanishes, as both hands are shown empty. Cointemplate: Two coins are placed under a clear plate held by a spectator. One of the coins startlingly penetrates up through the glass to appear on top of the plate. Chaperone: A routine with three different colored balls accompanied by a cute presentation. Balls are repeatedly placed in your pocket but appear back in your hand. The routine ends with all the balls vanishing. Ring On, Ring Off: A borrowed ring penetrates the center of a pen that is held at both ends by a spectator. Just as easily the ring is pulled off the pen. Acupuncture: A quick linking pin routine with an acupuncture presentation. North, South, East and West: As two coins are moved to opposite sides of the table one of them magically disappears and joins the other. Jarred Coin: A coin repeatedly vanishes from your hand to appear inside a little jar. The jar is sealed shut but the coin still manages to vanish from your hand and appear inside the jar. Purple Cow: A quick and direct spellbound routine presented as a poem. A silver coin changes to a purple coin a
Advantages: Clean, efficient, friendly staff Disadvantages: not enough frequency to some stations
...I use the South West Trains service between Salisbury and Tisbury, and Salisbury, Tisbury and London Waterloo frequently. The old diesel trains have been refurbished, and are very comfortable. They are still quite loud, but quite smooth. They are always immaculate, and punctual, and the staff are great. There is always a buffet trolley, which is well stocked and is reasonably priced. The fares...
...Having travelled with a number of different train operators, I have to sadly say that South West Trains ranks amongst, if not, the lowest of the bunch. This is sad, because it is also the train operator that I (have to) use most frequently.
If travelling from London Waterloo and you do not board the train early enough or joining at a later stop, then finding a seat can be vary from being very...
Advantages: Fast, pretty reliable, Oyster fares are OK, clean Disadvantages: Delays, weekend engineering works, a lot of the staff are muppets
...Line ? cuts across London north to south from Harrow and Wealdstone down to Elephant and Castle. This is a deep level line and uses train stock first implemented in the 1970s.
Central Line ? cuts across London west to east, from Ealing Broadway to Epping to the North East of London. Again, this is a deep level line and uses relatively new (1992) trains.
