Happyism is Australian funny man and host of Channel 4's 'The Last Leg', Adam Hill's eagerly awaited debut UK DVD. Recorded at the famous London Hammersmith Apollo, everyone's favourite Antipodian delivers a first class evening of comedy with the usual anecdotes and audience participation all delivered in his refreshingly unique, laid back style. Allowing us into the world of stardom, he recounts jaw-dropping tales of meeting the Dalai Lama (and to his surprise making him laugh!) as well as his excitement at meeting The Muppets. Happyism is not only the title, but also his newly formed cult religion and is guaranteed to leave you with a more positive outlook on life!
Television producer extraordinaire Aaron Spelling launched a pop-culture phenomenon with his 1990s teen soap opera BEVERLY HILLS 90210, a landmark series that not only set the standard for '90s teen culture, but singlehandedly wrote the template for later shows like DAWSON'S CREEK and THE O.C. Created by Darren Star, the glitzy series chronicled the coming-of-age dramas of Minnesota siblings Brandon (Jason Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (Shannen Doherty) as they adjusted to their new lives in the affluent environs of the title's postcode, where they attended the fictional West Beverly High with a tight-knit group of teenage friends: good natured jock Steve Sanders (Ian Ziering); naive virgin Donna Martin (Tori Spelling); aspiring DJ David Silver (Brian Austin Green); blonde siren Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth); and troubled bad-boy Dylan McKay (Luke Perry). Like DEGRASSI, the series attempted social commentary by crafting storylines featuring a wide range of issues affecting '90s teens, including alcoholism, drug abuse, sex, and depression. This ninth series continues the social drama and love affairs as the privileged pals brave the pressures of the adult world.
Telegraph Hill is a neighbourhood in one of the hillier sections of San Francisco that over the years has become home to a large flock of wild parrots. While no one is certain how they got there, the birds were for the most part left to their own devices until discovered by Mark Bittner. A street musician and self-described Dharma bum , Bittner had no practical background in ornithology when he first encountered the parrots, but it wasn't long before he developed a close bond with them and took it upon himself to feed and care for the birds, and even gave many of them names. Bittner's friendship with the parrots became a growing experience that taught the guitarist as much about himself as it did about the birds, and with the passage of time, his work earned him the respect of his community as well as a home.The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill is a superlative documentary which recounts the story of the engaging and articulate Bittner and his birds, as well as an unexpected twist of fate which added a poignant note to their tale. Wise and tender in its treatment of relationships - between birds, between people, and between birds and people, this will charm those who loved March of the Penguins.
