It is one of humankind’s greatest achievements. More than twelve billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space – the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a nuclear generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager finally go out. But this little craft will travel on for millions of years, carrying a Golden Record bearing recordings and images of life on Earth. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity. From Crossing The Line Productions, The Farthest celebrates these magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped. Features: As Seen on the BBC UK Blu-ray Premiere Exclusive DVD content never before seen on TV

Keisha Ceylon is a psychic. At least, that's what she passes herself off as. The truth is, Keisha's real powers have more to do with separating troubled families from their money than actually seeing into the netherworld. Keisha watches the news for stories of missing family members. She gives it a few days, then moves in, tells these families she's had a vision, that she may have some clue to where these missing people are. And by the way, she charges for this service, and likes to see the money up front. Keisha's latest mark is a man whose wife disappeared a week ago. She's seen him on TV, pleading for his wife to come home, or, if she's been abducted, pleading with whoever took her to let her go. Keisha knows a payoff when she sees one. So she pays a visit to our troubled husband and tells him her vision. The trouble is, her vision just happens to be close enough to the truth that it leaves this man rattled. And it may very well leave Keisha dead.... Read by Francine Brody. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Francine Brody. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000568/bk_orio_000568_sample.mp3.

It’s no secret that authors have a love-hate relationship with Hollywood. The oft-repeated cliché that “the book was better than the movie” holds true for more reasons than the average reader will ever know. When asked about selling their book rights to Hollywood authors like to joke that they drive their manuscripts to the border of Arizona and California and toss them over the fence, driving back the way they came at breakneck speed. This is probably because Hollywood just doesn’t “get it.” Its vision for the film or TV series rarely seems to match the vision of the author. And for those rare individuals who’ve had the fortune of sitting across the desk from one of the myriad, interchangeable development execs praising the brilliance of their work while ticking off a never-ending list of notes for the rewrite, the pros of pitching their work to Hollywood rarely outweigh the cons.Stephen Jay Schwartz has sat on both sides of that desk - first as the Director of Development for film director Wolfgang Petersen, then as a screenwriter and author pitching his work to the film and television industry. He’s seen all sides of what is known in this small community as “Development Hell.” The process is both amusing and heartbreaking. Most authors whose work contains a modicum of commercial potential eventually find themselves in “the room” taking a shot at seeing their creations re-visualized by agents, producers or development executives. What they often discover is that their audience is younger and less worldly as themselves. What passes for “story notes” is often a mishmash of vaguely connected ideas intended to put the producer’s personal stamp on the project.Hollywood vs. The Author is a collection of non-fiction anecdotes by authors who’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the development room firsthand - some who have successfully managed to straddle the two worlds, seeing their works morph into the kinds of fe 1.

A New York Times and USA Today best seller. For the first time, Nicole Curtis, the star of the megahit HGTV and DIY Network show Rehab Addict, reveals her private struggles, her personal victories, and the inspiring lessons we can all learn from them. Nicole Curtis is the tough, soulful, charismatic dynamo who, for the past 20 years, has worked tirelessly to restore historical houses, often revitalizing neighborhoods in the process. And also in the process drawing millions of fans to her television show, Rehab Addict, where they follow each step of the hard work and singular vision that transform the seemingly lost cause of a run-down building into a beautifully restored home. But there is so much more to this self-taught expert and working mom. With her signature irresistible honesty and energy, Curtis writes about a project that every listener will find compelling: how she rehabbed herself. Better Than New reveals what's not seen on TV - Curtis' personal battles and her personal triumphs, her complicated relationships, her life as a single mother, the story of how she got started remodeling houses, and the consuming ins and outs of producing a megahit television show while keeping up with two kids, two rescue dogs, and countless tasks on her home renovation punch lists. Followers of the show will get an inside look at some of her most famous restorations, including the Dollar house, the Minnehaha house, the Campbell Street project, and the Ransom Gillis mansion. Part inspirational memoir and part self-help guide, Better Than New is a journey in eight chapters - each pinned to the story of a house that Curtis has remodeled, each delivering a hard-fought lesson about life - that takes listeners to the place we all want to be: home. As fans of her show can attest, Nicole is totally unscripted, and this audiobook - featuring extensive new material exclusive to the audio edition - i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicole Curtis.

Co-owner of Boston Pizza and star of CBC-TV's Dragons' Den, Jim Treliving reveals the secrets of his success, taking you behind the scenes at critical points in the building of his businesses-which also include Mr. Lube and interests in real estate and sports franchising. Covering the 'big' decisions-from what to do with your life to how to source capital, find partners, handle change and inspire growth-Treliving sets out the tools for making effective choices and explains why every decision requires action. He also discusses how to bounce back from those no-so-good decisions, explaining how to refocus and recalibrate, just as Treliving had to do when he realized that Boston Pizza's expansion into Asia was causing the company to drift off-brand. Pulling back from Asian opportunities was a tough decision at the time, but the move became crucial to guiding successful BP expansions later on. Always candid, Treliving also shares his insights on some very public choices, ones you may have seen him make on The Big Decision or Dragons' Den. Down to earth, sensible and filled with vision and humour, Decisions is a book for budding entrepreneurs and for those who want the inside business stories beyond what we see on TV. But it's also for people who want to transform their companies into ones that create steady wealth and lasting success. Even if you're not in business, Treliving's inspiring story and astute advice will help you make wiser decisions in your life and move forward with confidence in your chosen field.

Stephen Poliakoff on Stage and Screen
24,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

During a career that has spanned four decades Stephen Poliakoff has established himself as a unique talent, a fine stage dramatist and auteur. His work as writer and director has seen him hailed as 'our most poetic and best TV dramatist' while in the US his television dramas have received critical acclaim, The Lost Prince winning three Emmy Awards and Gideon's Daughter two Golden Globes.    This comprehensive study of Poliakoff's work for stage and screen - the first of its kind - will prove an invaluable companion to students of film, media and theatre studies.   Professor Nelson locates Poliakoff's vision and independence as a writer director in his meteoric rise to success in the theatre - which saw him become writer in residence at the National Theatre at the age of 24, in his family background and in the intersection between personal and public histories.   Poliakoff's work for stage and screen is examined in broadly chronological and thematic clusters beginning with his documenting of urban youth culture in early stage plays and in his later TV drama The Tribe. It moves on to consider his women character plays, his issue plays, history plays, feature films and lastly his television dramas which have brought his work to a much larger audience and secured his reputation as the most distinctive television dramatist since Dennis Potter.
