      Story of Enigma - Includes Book

      Zavvi

      <p>The Story of Enigma: The story of the Enigma began in the 1920s when German military began using the machine, developed for the business market, to communicate in unintelligible coded messages. It worked by allowing its operator to type a message and then scramble it. During WWII, the Nazis believed its secret codes for radio messages were indecipherable to the Allies so they used the machine for battlefield, naval and diplomatic communications. It was during the 1940 Norwegian campaign that the painstaking work of code breakers cracked the code. Their work began to pay off in 1941 when they were able to gather evidence of planned invasions of Greece. This is the story of how the meticulous work of code breakers based at Britain s Bletchley Park cracked the secrets of German wartime communication and played a crucial role in the final defeat of Germany.</p>

      Racing Through Time - The Cat Came Back: Jaguar's Return...

      Zavvi

      <p>This programme charts the long awaited of return of Jaguar to Le Mans in 1980’s. Jaguar teamed up with the American Group 44 team who designed and produced a sports racing car around the Jaguar V12 engine. Two cars were entered for the 1984 race but both failed to finish. In 1985 a Group 44 car managed to finish the race in thirteenth place, winning the GTP category, the first time in twenty-two years that a Jaguar had been classified as a finisher. Following the success of Tom Walkinshaw and his TWR Racing Team which dominated the European Touring Car Championship with the Jaguar XJS, TWR were given the task of designing a sports racing car to win Le Mans for Jaguar. The cars that were entered in the 1986 and 1987 Le Mans all performed well but luck was not on their side, they all succumbed to failures that were incidental rather that fundamental to the cars' design or construction. In 1988 Jaguar went to Le Mans in strength, with an entry of five XJR-9 cars. Two of the cars retired but the remaining three went on to finish first, fourth and sixteenth. The winning Jaguar, driven by Jan Lammers, Johnny Dumfries and Andy Wallace, completed 394 laps and covered a distance of 5332.79km (3313.63 miles), in comparison the winning D-type of 1957 covered a distance of 4397km (2732 miles).Special Features:None Listed</p>

ENGLISH HERITAGE: A VERY GRAND DESIGN &amp; ROMANCING THE STONE Everywhere we look history is around us. English Heritage act as the guardians s of the nation s history and are charged with preserving and maintaining over 350,000 historic and listed buildings, ruins and castles. Apethorpe Hall is truly one of England s great country houses. It was begun in the late 15th century and once played host to Queen Elizabeth I, King James I and King Charles I. In total 13 royal visits were recorded between 1565 and 1636. After years of neglect and decay, the Jacobean mansion fell into total disrepair until 2004 when English Heritage stepped in and saved it. Park Hill was the most ambitious inner city housing scheme of its time. Designed by Ivor Smith and Jack Lynn and built between 1957 and 1961, Park Hill dominates the eastern skyline of Sheffield. In 1997, it was listed at Grade II* for its architectural importance, its ground-breaking use of streets in the sky and its impressive scale. By that time, however, it had become run down. Branded a crime-ridden eyesore, it was no longer a desirable place to live. A regeneration project is in hand to transform the estate into a safe and vibrant place to live. English Heritage provided a grant for repair works to the reinforced concrete frames which form the structure of the flats. ENGLISH HERITAGE: THE QUEEN, HER LOVER &amp; HIS CASTLE Kenilworth is one of England s most magnificent castles. Once standing at the heart of a 1,600-ha (4,000-acre) hunting ground, and surrounded by a vast man-made lake, it represented a rich prize to the generations of royal and almost-royal great men who owned and embellished it: among them Geoffrey de Clinton, John of Gaunt, Henry V, and Robert Dudley, earl of Leicester. Even in melancholy decay its influence has been far-reaching, thanks, in part, to Walter Scott s best-selling romance, Kenilworth, which brought the castle new fame. The ruins are best known as the home of Robert Dudley, the great love of Queen Elizabeth I. Dudley created an ornate palace here to impress his Queen in 1575. Follow in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth I in the authentically recreated Elizabethan Garden. Lost to the world for over 400 years, it is now open to visitors once more. BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: Each autumn, up to 5000 of the most amazing pieces of British architecture, engineering and heritage are opened up to the public. The main focus of the series is the London Open House architecture event, which offers you the rare opportunity to get inside some very special buildings you would never usually be able to see. From the Bank of England to a top secret Second World War bunker used by Churchill, Gladstone s St Deiniol s library in Wales to the cutting edge life-saving research laboratories at Queen Mary University in London. It s a once in a year opportunity to go Behind Closed Doors.</p>

      WWII: D-Day Landings (Includes Book)

      Zavvi

      <p>In the early hours of June 6th, 1944 Allied forces began the greatest military assault ever attempted. They came to Normandy by both air and sea with one objective: to get a toehold on the continent and from there, begin the long campaign that would result in the liberation of Europe and the end of the Second World War. The assault was conducted in two phases, an airborne attack by 24,000 paratroopers and glider pilots followed by an amphibious landing across Normandy's sandy beaches. Using personal testimonies, we tell the dramatic stories of the men who took part: the British and American paratroopers and glider infantry, men who crewed tanks, infantry soldiers who were deposited on the Normandy beaches by landing craft and RAF crews who took part in the deception plan that convinced Hitler and his generals that Calais was the main target for the assault. The veterans' words are illustrated by dramatic archive and colour footage of key locations. By telling their stories in their own words, we get a snap shot of what it was like to be part of the enormous undertaking.</p>

      Narrows Escapes of WWII - Volume 1

      Zavvi

      <p>Narrow Escapes of World War II tells the real stories of courageous and deadly fights against impossible odds. The extraordinary stories of heroes; men who stand up and fight when everything seems lost. Those brilliant generals, ferocious warriors and individual acts of courage that can turn the tide in a war, and whose stories can still be told as shining examples of bravery and courage. This series combines eyewitness and expert testimony with specially shot material, dramatic reconstruction and archive much of it previously unseen. The Amiens Raid: It was one of the most daring raids of World War II. Led by Group Captain Charles Pickard, a squadron of Mosquito bombers, often flying just twelve feet off the ground, sped across the English Channel. Their task to smash down the walls of Amiens Jail and free the Resistance fighters inside. But waiting for them was a squadron of German fighters. This film features the gripping recollections of Maxwell Sparks, one of Pickard s pilots and authentic footage from the raid. The Doolittle Raid: In the wake of the humiliation of Pearl harbour, Colonel Jimmy Doolittle was asked to mount an astonishing raid. For the first time ever, bombers would be put onto aircraft carriers and shipped over near Japan. They would then hit Tokyo. The trouble was, the bombers couldn t land on the aircraft carriers. Instead, the crews had to fly to China and then bail out. Many ditched in the sea. Others met up with resistance fighters and then tried to evade the Japanese. Several were captured. This film has exceptional footage of the raid itself and testimony from several of the surviving Doolittle raiders. Wingate &amp; The Chindits: They were the bravest of the brave. Led by the bible-thumping, onion chewing maverick, Orde Wingate, the Chindits were the British army s elite jungle troops the first to take on the Japanese and beat them. This film contains jaw-dropping testimony from survivors, dramatic reconstruction and archive and it tells the story of the Chindits first near-suicidal mission behind Japanese lines. How often do get the chance to look into a man s eyes as he tells how he had to shoot a wounded comrade in the head, or hear a poem composed on the death of a mule? The Black Battalion: At Christmas, 1944, Hitler made his last great gamble to win the war. His plan: to cut the Allied army in two in the so-called Battle of the Bulge. Key to it all was the taking of the town of Bastogne. But waiting for his troops there was the 333rd Field Artillery. It was made up of black soldiers, led by white offices from America s segregated south. They were sneered at by most US troops. But at Bastogne they made one of the heroic stands of the war, surviving atrocities by the SS and prejudice from their own side. This film features the emotional reminiscences of George Shomo, one of the last survivors of the 333rd. Lucky Laycock s Escape From Crete: Handsome, clever and born to lead Major-General Robert Lucky Laycock was Winston Churchill s head of Combined Operations, his most fearsome commando leader and a legend amongst Special Forces. He was also very lucky to survive the war. Along with his brigademajor, the novelist, Evelyn Waugh, he made one of the most remarkable escapes of World War Two, as their ill-equipped unit desperately held off of a mighty German attack on Crete so that 30,000 British soldiers could escape.</p>
