Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down conveys the raw, chaotic urgency of ground-force battle in a worst-case scenario. With exacting detail, the film re-creates the American siege of the Somalian city of Mogadishu in October 1993, when a 45-minute mission turned into a 16-hour ordeal of bloody urban warfare. Helicopter-borne U.S. Rangers were assigned to capture key lieutenants of Somali warlord Muhammad Farrah Aidid, but when two Black Hawk choppers were felled by rocket-propelled grenades, the U.S. soldiers were forced to fend for themselves in the battle-torn streets of Mogadishu, attacked from all sides by armed Aidid supporters. Based on author Mark Bowden's bestselling account of the battle, Scott's riveting, action-packed film follows a sharp ensemble cast in some of the most authentic battle sequences ever filmed. The loss of 18 soldiers turned American opinion against further involvement in Somalia, but Black Hawk Down makes it clear that the men involved were undeniably heroic.

After it was devastated by the Luftwaffe's bombing raids during the Second World War, much of Central Bristol was rebuilt in the 1950s, and a new shopping centre emerged in Broadmead. Illustrated by evocative archive film, never previously released on DVD, and stunning period photographs, this is the story of how and why the city underwent such massive changes. Until it was virtually wiped out in 1940, Castle Street was Bristol's principal shopping area. The planners decided that Broadmead was to be the post-war retail centre, and stores such as Woolworths and Marks & Spencer were among the first of the new arrivals in the early 1950s. Towards the end of the decade, the huge structures of Lewis's and Jones' dominated the scene. You will also see glimpses of pubs, streets and businesses which were swept away by these new developments. The story is enhanced by interviewees who remember the city at that time, and modern film which provides a comparison with many of the places depicted in the archive footage. Produced in association with Bristol Record Office, and narrated by eminent local historian and author Mike Hooper, this documentary will be enjoyed by anyone who has an interest in Bristol, past or present.
Advantages: cheap, compact, great bargain Disadvantages: none
...Woolworth?s Worth It DVD Player
Well having completely given up on our Liteon DVD recorder which cost us a fair bit of money but was totally useless at recording anything let alone simply playing a DVD with ease we decided to get a new DVD player.

Review of Woolworths (Shop)
Advantages: Stay at home and order without trying to locate stuff in-store. Disadvantages: Not so good if you are in a hurry, or trust the dates.
...date. If there is a delay they let you know. Not Woolworths. They give you an expected delivery date, but fail to mention that your product will not be with you for at least another week. That's how they work, and no decent explanation.
So I ask if I had paid for home delivery, would the same be applied. Well actually yes. Had I phoned and done the order over the phone I would have been made...
