Avebury Stone Circle - Travel Video.
Avebury Stone Circle - Travel Video.DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. In England, close to the village of Silbury Hill in the county of Wiltshire, a 5,000 year old monument rises from the ground. It is a hill that is almost 40m high and is Europe's largest artificial prehistoric earthwork, built around 2, 800 B.C. The grass covered limestone hill was created for ritual ceremonies and its rocks originated from a huge stone circle that dates back to a Megalithic culture that encompassed the village of Avebury in which ancient rituals were performed right up to the time of Christianity. The White Horses Of Wiltshire are located on several sites in the English county. They are large, white contours of horses that can be seen from far away in the undulating countryside. The 100m long horses consist of limestone and their origin dates back to the 11th century or perhaps even earlier as they are very similar to images found in Stone Age drawings. Scientists believe that the builders of Stonehenge, which is only some 25 km distant, were the same that also constructed Avebury, the so-called `Beaker People'.

Colosseum-Stonehenge - Travel Video.
Colosseum-Stonehenge - Travel Video.DVD. Secrets Of Lost Empires Colosseum Ancient Romans flocked to this massive amphitheater by the tens of thousands, eagerly awaiting a bloody spectacle. As each gory show played on, the audience was sure to stay cool-thanks to a billowing canopy that protected them from the blazing Mediterranean sun. But how did the Roman builders completely cover the Colosseum? Even today's engineers don't usually attempt to roof an entire arena- and those that do rely on modern materials. Not a shred of the ancient roof has survived, so NOVA tries out two competing concepts. Every clue is precious-whether below the streets of Rome or in a puzzling painting from Pompeii. Stonehenge It's one of the most mysterious places on earth: a strange circle of stones, standing over the plains of England. Legends have linked Stonehenge to everyone from pagan druids to Merlin, but science has recently determined that this enigmatic temple was built by early Britons some 4,500 years ago. The question of how has been a matter of mere conjecture...until now. NOVA sends archaeologist Julian Richards, engineer Mark Whitby, and stonemason Roger Hopkins (of This Old House) on a mission: to move, raise, and cap a Stonehenge-like structure, armed only with Stone Age tools.

On the way we'll see many fascinating places, some of which appear almost untouched by the passage of time, all helping to keep the Cotswold special.

Hadrian's Wall - Travel Video.
Hadrian's Wall - Travel Video.DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. The famous Roman emperor Hadrian gave his name to what would become an even more famous wall, a powerful fortification in the north of England that served as protection against the `Barbarians' and extended right up to the Scottish border. Construction of the wall in the 2nd century A.D. signified hope for a lasting and secure defense against the invading Celts. Hadrian?s enormous line of defense covered an area between the North Sea coast and the Irish Sea and part of it stretched across Cumbria and Northumberland. The wall was meant to re-establish Roman power and ten thousand soldiers were commanded to protect it. Originally, the wall was 4? metres high and approximately 3 metres wide and its length of around 120 kilometres was a remarkable accomplishment. Even by Roman standards the establishment of the wall along the empire's north-eastern border was an ambitious plan. Improvements and changes were constantly made during construction work on the seemingly endless fortification. The western section of the mighty wall was originally built with peat that was later replaced by stone. In spite of intensive military efforts by the Romans, Northern tribes such as the Picts managed to break through the defensive line. To ensure comprehensive defence of the wall, the Roman commanders ordered that a small road be built along it to aid the quick dispersal of their soldiers. Although various sections of the wall have been excavated, today it passes across the natural landscape of the English countryside almost as it did during the time of Hadrian.

Great Britain's Express Steam Locomotives - Travel Video.
Great Britain's Express Steam Locomotives - Travel Video.5 Volume Boxed Gift Set. Goldhil Home Media. Many believe that the zenith of worldwide railroading occurred in Great Britain during the "golden age" of steam locomotives between 1930 and 1960. The railways developed an astonishing variety of engines and they pulled the fastest and most powerful trains of the time. These great passenger "Express" trains remain among the most famous in history and they continue to be a favorite memory of British railroading. This remarkable video series chronicles the amazing variety, speed and power of the passenger express steam locomotives of Great Britain. Their story is told with archival footage and with recent film of their increasingly popular special excursions. Along the way, viewers will experience the wonderful history of Great Britain's four major railways both before and after they were nationalized into British Railways in 1948. British Railways When nationalized in 1948, the four great British railways became British Railways. The new organization inherited a substantial stock of locomotives, however, it was still necessary to replace many worn-out and obsolete machines before the change-over to diesels could take place. BR developed a range of "standard" locomotives the first of which "Britannia" rolled out in 1951. These were the last of the great British Express steam locomotives. Although they were state-of-the-art, they would soon be replaced by the more efficient diesels. Nevertheless, they live on with their restored brethren as reminders of the Golden Age of British and world railroading. Great Western Railway The G.W.R. ran many popular Expresses, none more so tan the "Cornish Riviera Express," which carried vacationers to the resorts in Devon and Cornwall. This and other trains were powered by a wide variety of locomotives. Each engine class bore special names, from the legendary "City of Truro," the first 100 mph steam locomotive, to the "Castles," "Halls" and "Manors." But to this day, the most popular locomotives of British railroading remain the magnificent "King" class. Many of these great locomotives still operate to the delight of railroad enthusiasts from around the world. London and North Eastern Railway The L.N.E.R. ran some of the most famous trains in the world, and the locomotives which hauled them became railroad legends in their own right. The "Flying Scotsman" was perhaps the most famous of all and was powered by the giant engines favored by the railway. The streamlined "A4" Pacifics developed by Sit Nigel Gresley were incredibly popular and one, the "Mallard," was the fastest steam locomotive ever, reaching 126 mph. Luckily, many of the best engines remain in operating condition thanks to the National Railway Museum. London, Midland and Scottish Railway The L.M.S. was the largest of Britain's railways and served cities from the South Coast to the top of Scotland. It ran many famous expresses, including the "Royal Scot," "The Caledonian" and the "Pines Express." To haul these trains the L.M.S. built some of the most powerful locomotives of all. The Pacific style engines of the "Duchess," "Princess Royals," "Jubilees" and "Black 5" classes were incredible machines and were very popular with the traveling public. The last steam locomotives were out of service by 1968, but many of these powerful engines are still enjoyed today on special trips. Southern Railway The Southern Railway ran many famous Express trains such as the "Golden Arrow," "Atlantic Coast Express" and "Bournemouth Belle." Their locomotives were equally popular and are noted for their unusual design features, such as slab-side "air-smoothed" casings. The names of the engines gave them a romantic air, since many bore names associated with Britain's history, like the Knights of the Round Table class. As with locomotives from the other great British railways, many are lovingly maintained to the delight of rail and history fans from all over. 275 minutes ( 4 Hours, 35 minutes )

England Worcester and the Malverns - Travel Video.
England Worcester and the Malverns - Travel Video.DVD. Naxos Scenic Musical Journeys. 60 Minutes. The Places The places visited are principally in the west of England, the heart of 'Elgar country', with its half-timbered houses, great cathedrals and churches, rivers and verdant landscape. There are glimpses of the Malvern hills, of Hereford and Worcester, and excursions to London and to Scotland, in views largely associated with the life of the composer Edward Elgar. The Music The music of Elgar was rooted in his own part of England. His Enigma Variations offers portraits of his friends and neighbours, the enigma lying in the unrevealed melody that he claimed would be generally known and that would go with the whole set of variations. The puzzle remains unsolved. Other music used includes Elgar's Serenade for Strings, Pomp and Circumstance March, No. 1 and Salut d'amour.

His Water Music was written to entertain King George I, probably in 1717, as he sailed up the Thames, and the second, the Music for the Royal Fireworks was commissioned to celebrate the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1749, accompanying a firework display in Green Park.
