Kim Peek is arguably the world's most famous savant and the inspiration behind the Oscar-winning film, Rain Man. Described as 'a living Google', Kim is a confounding mix of disability and brilliance that has baffled neurosurgeons. Most savants have only one dominating interest, but Kim seems to soak up everything: from sport to politics and even the minutiae of the British monarchy.

1984 saw the long-awaited reunion of the classic DEEP PURPLE Mark II lineup of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord and Ian Paice. It was the first time they had been together since 1973. They recorded a brand new studio album, 'Perfect Strangers', and headed out on tour. The band's show in Sydney, Australia was professionally filmed and is the only full-length concert recording of the band at this time.  The 'Perfect Strangers Live' DVD — released October 14 via Eagle Vision — is a stunning concert with the band in incendiary form. The setlist mixes then new tracks from the 'Perfect Strangers' album with favourites from the early seventies culminating in the brilliant 'Smoke On The Water' finale.

Some 150,000 years ago Europe and Western Asia were dominated by an extraordinary race of human beings who were tall, around 6 feet or so, with an immensely strong physical build, and clearly intelligent, their brain was in fact slightly larger than that of modern man. They were called the Neandertals. They had the strength and the courage and the social organisation to survive and thrive even through the terrible ordeal of the successive ice ages, which carpeted Northern Europe in perpetual snow and ice for years on end. They were the great survivors. Then suddenly, around 35,000 years ago they disappeared. Wiped off the map. Extinct. Replaced in some strange and inexplicable way by our own direct ancestors, Modern Man, homo sapiens, who went on to populate the entire world. The extraordinary disappearance of the Neandertals remains one of the greatest mysteries in the history of human evolution. This programme unravels that mystery. It explores the very latest scientific research to present, at last, a solution to the Neandertal Enigma.

Sacrificial Lambs on the High Alter of Science  Australian servicemen and nomadic Aboriginals reveal the devastating effects of atomic weapons testing carried out in Australia by the British during the 1950s. For the first time, members of the Royal Australian Army, Air Force and Navy describe former top secret aspects of those tests. With the use of rare archival film and photographs, as well as eye witness accounts, Australian Atomic Confessions chronicles the hidden history and exposes previously hidden Governemnet cover-ups. The consequences of nuclear testing imposed on the Australian people and land are not just skeletons of the past. Sydneys' new nuclear reactor continues to pose a threat to the environment and civilians, and the problem of removing and disposing of the old nuclear reactor remains an unanswered question. Prominent Aboriginal Elders also warn that an imminent catastrophe may occur in Central Australia as a result of two uranium mines. Australian Atomic Confessions is a chilling expose of nuclear testing and its damaging legacy, one that continues to this day.
