Chart throb by Ben Elton( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A blisteringly funny take on the modern phenomenon of "reality" TV Chart Throb - the ultimate pop quest, 95,000 hopefuls, three judges - but just one winner. Calvin Simms is the genius behind the show - he always wins because he always writes the rules. But this year, as he sits in judgement upon the Mingers, Clingers and Blingers whom he has pre-selected in his carefully scripted "search" for a star, he has no idea that the rules are changing. The "real" is about to be put into "reality" television as Calvin and his fellow judges are about to become ex-factors themselves. Chart Throb - one winner, and a whole bunch of losers

Charlie and the chocolate factory by Tim Burton( Visual )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La mayoría de las noches en el hogar de los Bucket, la cena es un tazón de sopa de repollo aguada que el joven Charlie comparte con mucho gusto con su madre, su padre, sus dos abuelos y sus dos abuelas. La suya es una vieja casa diminuta, destartalada y con corrientes de aire, pero está llena de amor. Todas las noches, lo último que Charlie ve desde su ventana es la gran fábrica, y se queda dormido soñando con lo que habrá dentro. Desde hace casi quince años, nadie ha visto entrar o salir de la fábrica a un solo trabajador, y tampoco han visto al propio Willy Wonka, y sin embargo, misteriosamente, se siguen elaborando grandes cantidades de chocolate que se envían a tiendas de todo el mundo. Un día Willy Wonka hace un anuncio trascendental. Abrirá su famosa fábrica y revelará "todos sus secretos y su magia" a cinco afortunados niños que encuentren unos billetes dorados escondidos en el interior de cinco chocolatinas Wonka elegidas al azar. Nada haría más feliz a la familia de Charlie que verle ganar, pero tiene muy pocas posibilidades, ya que sólo se pueden permitir comprar una chocolatina al año, para su cumpleaños. En efecto, una a una se divulgan noticias en todo el mundo sobre los niños que encuentran los billetes dorados y la esperanza de Charlie es cada vez más débil. Pero entonces sucede algo maravilloso. Charlie encuentra una moneda en la calle nevada y va a la tienda más cercana para comprar una Delicia Wonka de Suculento Dulce de Leche, pensando sólo en el hambre que tiene y en lo rica que estará. Ahí, bajo el envoltorio hay un destello dorado. Es el último billete. ¡Charlie va a ir a la fábrica!

Cor, blimey!( Visual )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carry on films are famous around the world for their saucy one-liners and oh-so-British attitutde to sex. They turned a generation of actors into national institutions and made stars of Sid James and Barbara Windsor. Both homage and exposé, this is the inside story of the turbulent love affair between 'dirty old man' Sid and 'eternally bubbly blonde' Barbara. Behind the scenes, in leaky caravans and muddy film locations, these two british icons kept up a passionnate and stormy affair, to the varying dismay and amusement of their Carry on collegues

Forty years on Compact Disc Pack by Alan Bennett( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alan Bennett stars in a new production of his own acclaimed satrical comedy, thirty years after its original West End debut. The Headmaster has been at Albion House for fifty years, man and boy. Now he is retiring and takes part in the end-of-year entertainment for the last time. Entitled Speak For England, Arthur, it weaves together a multi-generational story of England: the glorious era at the turn of the century, when the summers were always golden; the fast-living inter-war years peopled by the Bloomsbury Group; and the growing cynicism of a country going to war twice in so many decades. Tongue-in-cheek, the play-within-a-play prompts an outraged response from the Headmaster, who can only see his beloved standards being mocked. Yet within the parody lies an almost-painful nostalgia for a more peaceful age and the timeless misunderstanding of one generation by another
