Everything about a total eclipse of the Sun. An informative and entertaining mix of science and human interest. From the Atlantic to the Black Sea, the last great eclipse of the 20th Century. A rollicking good yarn. Narrated by Brian Blessed. Good for all audiences.
THE COMPLETE COSMOS

Our previous best-seller. A thorough-going guide to the Solar System and the cosmos beyond. Produced in 1998, the series is now superseded by SPACEFILES. COSMOS continues to sell, however, such is its integrity. As a DVD set, the series is second to none – with seven languages, sub-titles (close-captioning) and a just-music-and-pictures option. No talking heads. Good for all audiences.

TV: 1 x 52’ DVD: 50 minutes
A seasonal documentary – the mystery of the Star of Bethlehem, solved! What guided the Three Wise Men, the Magi, to birthplace of Christ?
