Stephanie Cole, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Roger Allam star in the first series of the hit sitcom about the tiny charter airline for whom no job is too small, but many, many jobs are too difficult. By John Finnemore (‘The News Quiz’, ‘That Mitchell & Webb Sound’) Run by the forbidding divorcée Carolyn Knapp-Shappey (an unfortunate marriage, namewise, but in Carolyn’s opinion, marginally better than Carolyn Shappey-Knapp), her two pilots are the smooth, experienced and almost-certainly-fired-by-a-big-airline-for-all-round naughtiness Douglas, and struggling almost-competent pilot and sweaty man Martin. All-round help is provided by Carolyn’s near-idiot son, Arthur...In the first of the complete six episodes - ´´´´Qikiqtarjuaq´´´´ - when MJN Air flies a party of tourists near the North Pole, Arthur goes hunting for polar bears, Carolyn for a rogue lemon and Martin for a believable French accent... Then we travel to episode 2 - ´´´´Paris´´´´, and when a bottle of highly-expensive whisky goes missing, Martin becomes the Miss Marple of MJN Air with Arthur assisting as his trusty Doctor Watson and Douglas hindering as his untrusty prime suspect. On to part 3, ´´´´Newcastle´´´´, where love is in the air, but also unfortunately in a small airport in Birmingham - and Martin has to choose between career, romance and fixing a very small tail-light. Part 4 finds us on the way to ´´´´Ottery St Mary´´´´. Martin is a Man With A Van, Douglas flies A Plane With An Otter and Carolyn dates A Pilot With A Problem With Sheep. And two mysteries solved - the name of Carolyn’s dog and the rules of ´´Yellow Car”. Arriving at episode 5, ´´´´Rotterdam´´´´, it´s Lifejacket, Camera, Action as stardom beckons for one of the crew of MJN Air... but who will get to blow the final whistle? And will they look good in a vest? And in the last episode of the series - ´´´´St. Petersburg´´´´ - some vodka and an unwary bird could spell the end of the line for MJN Air, and when Carolyn meet... 1. Language: English.

After a foreword from Tony award-winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell, Keltie Colleen introduces herself - an average, everyday sort of girl from an average town with average parents. Ever since she can remember, she´s wanted to be a dancer. Throughout Rockettes, Rockstars and Rockbottom, we watch Keltie move to New York City and follow her dreams. She struggles and overcomes incredible odds to be invited into the world´s premier dance company, The Radio City Rockettes. All of her dreams come true just as she falls madly in love for the first time with her complete opposite: a long-haired, whisky-drinking rockstar. Keltie takes us on an adventure complete with painful missteps on her path to finding love, dealing with loss and working as a performer in the entertainment industry. When rockstar number one breaks her heart, Keltie replaces him with a long-haired, skinny-jeans-wearing clone. And when that relationship ends, she finds herself dancing on the MTV Video Music Award stage making love eyes at her next skinny-jeans-wearing future boyfriend, whose face in the coming months would taunt her from the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Keltie hits rockbottom after finding out that rockstar number three had not only been touring all over the world, but touring the beds of various women. Left in a state of disbelief, she vows to break her addiction to emotionally unavailable men in skinny jeans. She does what any women does when her heart is broken: she cries, stops eating, and is sure her life is over. Keltie walks us through the steps of healing heartbreak and finding yourself after your identity is stolen by someone else´s heart. Her ability to be honest to herself and then share that with the world is not only incredibly brave, but inspiring. Charmingly awkward, her resiliency, determination and love of life are truly something to aspire to. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Keltie Colleen.

In the debut novel Dreams and Shadows, screenwriter and noted film critic C. Robert Cargill takes us beyond the veil, through the lives of Ewan and Colby, young men whose spirits have been enmeshed with the otherworld from a young age. This brilliantly crafted narrative - part Neil Gaiman, part Guillermo Del Torro, part William Burroughs - follows the boys from their star-crossed adolescences to their haunted adulthoods.Cargill´s tour-de-force takes us inside the Limestone Kingdom, a parallel universe where whisky-swilling genies and foul-mouthed wizards argue over the state of the metaphysical realm. Having left the spirit world and returned to the human world, Ewan and Colby discover that the creatures from this previous life have not forgotten them, and that fate can never be sidestepped. With sensitivity and hopeful examination, Cargill illuminates a supernatural culture that all too eerily resembles our own. Set in a richly imagined and constructed world, complete with its own richly detailed history and mythology, Dreams and Shadows is a deeply engaging story about two extraordinary boys becoming men. 1.

An extravaganza of suburban noir – complete with one orgy, one brothel, and a series of firearms disputes - from Adam Thirlwell, twice selected as one of Granta´s Best of Young British Novelists. This yarn takes place in the suburbs of a giant city. In Brasilia they’re coming off their night shift; in Tokyo they’re having their first whisky sours. That’s what’s happening elsewhere in the world when our hero wakes up. Together with his wife and dog, he lives at home with his parents. He has had the good education and, until recently, the good job. In other words, the juggernaut of meaning was not parked heavily on our hero’s lawn. But then the lurid overtakes him - and whether this lurid tone is caused by our hero’s new unemployment or his feelings for a girl who is not his wife or the return of his old friend, Hiro, it’s hard to say. What’s definite is that a chain of events begins that feels to those inside it narcotic and neurotic, like one long and terrible descent - complete with lies, deceit, and chicanery; one orgy, one brothel and a series of firearms disputes. While if you start to notice minute doubles and repeats or wonder if what you took as some trick of perspective might in fact be a kink of reality, perhaps that shouldn´t be so much of a surprise.... For very possibly this suburban noir, as the story of a woebegone and global generation - and our hero, the sweetest narrator in world literature, may well also be the most fearsome. Adam Thirlwell was born in London in 1978. He is the author of two novels, Politics and The Escape, and a project with international novels that includes an essay book, which won a Somerset Maugham Award, and a compendium of translations edited for McSweeney´s. He has twice been selected as one of Granta´s Best of Young British Novelists. His work is translated into 30 languages. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Banks.
