This is the story of how Harry Lillis Crosby called himself Bing and sold more records than any human being ever had before. "He revolutionised home entertainment and was single- handedly responsible for killing off the parlour piano", enthuses author Michael Freedland, only half joking, as he attempts to pin down this enigmatic man who became an entertainment phenomenon. Crosby turned pop singing into big business in the middle years of the 20th century and this lushly illustrated book tells the story of a unique career. The impact of the easy-going voice is thoughtfully assessed and the hugely successful move into film is well documented. Freedland claims Crosby was the greatest ever screen priest, better even than Spencer Tracy, and the run through his dramatic, comic, and just plain excuses to sing a song parts is comprehensively delivered. But while Bing was a hit with the public, at home things were different. Some of Crosby's own children have depicted him as a vicious martinet, a drunk, and a bully. To his credit Freedland doesn't dodge these allegations and ultimately this book provides a rounded and convincing picture of a remarkable entertainer and a complex man. --Nick Wroe

Each one is separately identified on the keypad and provides ample security detection for most domestic properties. 3 part set programs Allows three programmed setting levels dependent on the people in the property or the level of protection required, eg. night-time with upstairs detectors off and perimeter detectors on. Simple set readers for ease of operation Up to 4 stylish readers can be used to SET/UNSET the system with the option of using a proximity keyfob. Ideal for young, elderly or infirm. Personal attack facility PA buttons may be used to activate the system in an emergency. An additional PA facility exists on the remote keypads. Remote keypads for added flexibility Up to four slimline keypads can operate the system from any point in the property. 5 Digi-Outputs For a wire-in digital communicator, RedCare STU or Dialler. This allows the system to communicate with an Alarm Receiving Centre. LCD Keypad The LCD remote keypad operates with the Accenta Mini Gen4 intruder systems. Up to four LCD keypads can be connected to the system. The large 2x16 characters with backlight display provide a full status indication and the keypad plays entry and exit tones. Fire Zone Zones 7 and 8 may be programmed as a 24 Hour Fire Zone operating all of the time except during engineer mode. 250-event log The last 250 events to have occurred are stored in the memory and can be displayed, with their date and time, on the LCD remote keypad screen. Duress Code Allows the user to unset the system and silence the alarm under duress, using a second code that will communicate an alarm to an Alarm Receiving Centre. Chime Can be used to select a low security chime alarm for various areas of your house, even when the main alarm is turned off. When a door is opened or a detector triggered in an area set to chime, the control panel will deliver a low-volume 'bing-bong' sound to alert you. This is ideal for areas that require low level monitoring.

To Catch a ThiefThis minor 1955 work by Alfred Hitchcock, one of the lighter entries of his creative peak in the 1950s, is still imbued with the master's stock themes of shared guilt and romantic ambivalence. It is also hardly lacking in Hitchcockian cinematic inventiveness, such as a famous, often-imitated sequence in which some smooching between stars Cary Grant and Grace Kelly is intercut with a fireworks show that just happens to be going on outside in a Riviera setting. Grant plays a reformed cat burglar who is suspected of reviving his trade, though he knows someone else is using his old methods. A very enjoyable experience, but don't get this confused with Hitchcock's other Cary Grant film of that decade, a true masterpiece: North by Northwest. --Tom Keogh The Country GirlIn retrospect, George Seaton's adaptation of The Country Girl seems like the movie that was made to prove that both Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly could act. The tale of an alcoholic actor and singer (Crosby) and his long-suffering wife (Kelly) whose marriage is put to the test when he gets a second chance at stardom, Clifford Odets' drama is chock full of twists and turns designed to give actors a gruelling workout, with its hidden secrets, tortured love story, and frank depiction of the horrors of alcohol abuse. Crosby and Kelly sank their teeth into the meaty roles with gusto (it helped that a rock-solid William Holden was there for each to spark off of), and both were showered with accolades that remained high points of their careers. Crosby was lauded with kudos for turning his charming persona inside-out, but it was Kelly who stole the show, possibly because at the time she was one of the hardest working women in show business. In 1954, the actress appeared in four films, including the Alfred Hitchcock classics Dial M for Murder and Rear Window, and finally ascended to leading-lady status after her stellar supporting turns in High Noon and Mogambo. In typical Hollywood fashion, though, it was only when Kelly shrouded her breathtaking beauty in plain clothes and a dowdy hairdo that she was taken seriously and awarded a Best Actress Oscar--one of the most highly contested ever, as she beat out comeback star Judy Garland's ferocious performance in A Star Is Born. --Mark Englehart

A US sitcom behemoth with a global brand, Friends shot out of the gate in 1994 with snappy writing and an attractive cast. The exploits of sensitive paleontologist Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), his obsessive-compulsive sister Monica Geller (Courteney Cox); Monica's roommate Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), a spoiled rich girl trying to live on her own; earthy aromatherapist/masseuse Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow); and Monica's neighbours across the hall -- sarcastic Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry) and his struggling actor roommate Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) became a nationwide obsession, a pop-culture icon (remember "The Rachel" haircut?) and a ratings hit for its entire run. The first two seasons were mostly centered on the on-off saga of Ross and Rachel, and while their relationship remained a strong presence through romantic rivals and even a baby, the other characters eventually moved from sideshow players into a shared comedic lead. But Friends was not without its heart. Most of the cast had dysfunctional relationships with their parents and went through loss, divorce, marriage, parenthood, and love triangles. The emotional pregnancies of Rachel (by Ross) and Phoebe (surrogate to her half-brother's triplets) won the actresses Emmy Awards, and Joey's tender feelings for Rachel in Season 8 won LeBlanc, the most improved actor in the series, a nomination. Most sitcoms run out of ideas by the fifth season, but Friends gave itself a refreshing jolt the minute Monica and Chandler wound up in bed together. Their budding romance was not only the one of the funniest arcs of the series, but one of the most sentimental, as they planned a wedding, struggled to have a child and eventually turned to adoption. By seasons seven and onwards, the characters had each "grown up" from young singletons to thirtysomethings finding permanence in their careers and love lives but never losing the laughs. Friends featured a parade of celebrity guests, but utilised most of the stars as more than mere cameos: The sextet's parents were all brilliantly cast, particularly Kathleen Turner as Chandler's drag-queen father and Teri Garr as Phoebe's dizzy mom. Everyone from George Clooney to Sean Penn to Julia Roberts to Bruce Willis has appeared on the sitcom, and Tom Selleck certainly enjoyed a career resuscitation after his recurring role as Monica's older man. But no star power ever penetrated the bond between the six stars and their unmatchable chemistry worked for ten seasons. Even though the show is probably repeated somewhere in the world every day, this boxed set of Friends remains watchable over and over again -- even if that theme song eventually grates on your nerves! --Sally Giles
Advantages: First Sikh to playing for England Disadvantages: Lacked depth or insight into his life and his cricket
...cricket fans. That and his excitement when he gets a wicket have turned him into a cult hero. Monty Mania has gripped many cricket grounds as supporters dress up to look like their new found hero.

Advantages: Read the review Disadvantages: Read the review
...sexy. Do you think a truly sexy lady need to reveal that much to get noticed, hardly!
You will see a vastly different page opening for a same search in google maps and bing maps, just have a look and convince yourself, no point in making an useless and unnecessary review long. In fact I would not have taken this pointless exercise at all had not Kirsty set me off. But anyway thanks to her. Because...
Advantages: It's the same as most search engines with little extra bits Disadvantages: Google has become this icon in people's lives and Bing never really gets there.
...this review has used at least once, or will use on a daily basis. For me still, even after using Bing for about 3 months on and off I still use Google even though points of Bing are much better than Google, it still is the easier and more user friendly in my opinion search engine.
