    Germany: Memories of a Nation (Audio)

    Neil MacGregor

    This audiobook collections contains a major new series from the makers of A History Of The World In 100 Objects, exploring the fascinating and complex history of Germany from the origins of the Holy Roman Empire right up to the present day.

    Written and presented by Neil MacGregor, it is produced by BBC Radio 4, in partnership with the British Museum. Whilst Germany's past is too often seen through the prism of the two World Wars, this series investigates a wider 600-year-old history of the nation through its objects.

    It examines the key moments that have defined Germany's past - its great, world-changing achievements and its devastating tragedies - and it explores the profound influence that Germany's history, culture and inventiveness have had across Europe.

    The objects featured in the radio series range from large sculptures to small individual artefacts and items that are prosaic, iconic and symbolic. Each has a story to tell, a memory to invoke.

    Deep Meditation for Healing (Audio)

    Anita Moorjani

    In February 2006, Anita Moorjani faced end-stage terminal cancer, and doctors were resigned to the fact that she was in her last hours of life. She had lymphoma, which had spread throughout her body, and her organs were already shutting down. She went into a coma and experienced what has been termed a near death experience (NDE). Yet Anita woke up...and within 24 hours of coming out of the coma, she had a new-found knowing about her own life. Subsequently, her body healed very rapidly, and within weeks doctors found no traces of cancer. When you've been diagnosed with a serious illness, it is natural to feel fear and emotionally stressed, whereas your body would benefit more from a relaxed state of mind. The combination of emotional stress and fear, and the resultant mental chatter, depletes your energy. If you are currently dealing with a health challenge, your energy is better utilized when directed toward your healing and wellbeing. When your mind is relaxed, you are more able to support your body, nourishing it and giving it what it needs. The programme on this CD has been specially created to assist those who are currently going through physical challenges in their bodies, and may be inspired by what Anita experienced during her own journey to healing. It contains a highly specialized program of sound at different frequencies to guide you to a state of very deep and meditative relaxation. The benefits include: assisting you in releasing your fears by relaxing your mind; giving you more energy to focus toward physical healing; and entraining your mind to support your body and restore wellness.

    Confronting Managerialism (Paperback)

    Robert R. Locke

    Confronting Managerialism offers a scathing critique of the influence of neoclassical economics and modern finance on business school teaching and management practice. Locke and Spender show that responsible management has given way to 'managerialism', whereby an elite caste of businessmen disconnected from any ethical considerations call the shots. The book traces the loss of managers' earlier social concerns, amply encouraged by management education's transformation since the 1960's, especially in the US. It also questions not only the social ethics of the US management caste but its management efficacy compared to systems of management that are highly employee participatory and dependent, such as in Germany and Japan. A unique, topical and controversial look at a subject that impacts us all.

    The Road to Little Dribbling (Audio)

    Bill Bryson

    Twenty years ago, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to celebrate the green and kindly island that had become his adopted country. The hilarious book that resulted, Notes from a Small Island, was taken to the nation's heart and became the best-selling travel book ever, and was also voted in a BBC poll the book that best represents Britain. Now, to mark the twentieth anniversary of that modern classic, Bryson makes a brand-new journey around Britain to see what has changed. Following (but not too closely) a route he dubs the Bryson Line, from Bognor Regis to Cape Wrath, by way of places that many people never get to at all, Bryson sets out to rediscover the wondrously beautiful, magnificently eccentric, endearingly unique country that he thought he knew but doesn't altogether recognize any more. Yet, despite Britain's occasional failings and more or less eternal bewilderments, Bill Bryson is still pleased to call our rainy island home. And not just because of the cream teas, a noble history, and an extra day off at Christmas. Once again, with his matchless homing instinct for the funniest and quirkiest, his unerring eye for the idiotic, the endearing, the ridiculous and the scandalous, Bryson gives us an acute and perceptive insight into all that is best and worst about Britain today. Music written and performed by Richard Digance, inspired by The Road to Little Dribbling

Yet, millions know him best as the colourfully-dressed Sixth Doctor in Doctor Who, a character that has endured - and will continue to endure - through generations. This is Colin's own story, in conversation with interviewer Nicholas Briggs. Colin Baker's known and much-loved to Doctor Who fans as the Sixth Doctor, a tempestuous, passionate traveller of time and space. His appearance as a psychotic space-criminal in Blake's 7 story City at the Edge of the World is one of the most regarded guest spots in this popular BBC Sci-Fi hit. Colin has also found different audiences with his appearance in I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in 2012, as well as becoming a familiar personality in shows such as Come Dine With Me, and Celebrity Antiques Road Show.

    Letter from America: The Essential Letters 1936 - 2004 (Audio)

    Alistair Cooke

    All six volumes of 'The Essential Letters from America', brought together for the first time in this definitive chronological collection of Alistair Cooke's finest broadcasts. Alistair Cooke was the doyen of foreign correspondents and a radio legend, entertaining millions of listeners for over fifty years in his weekly 'Letter from America'. It was the longest-running show in radio history, and every show was a virtuoso performance. In this selection of his best and most memorable Letters, Cooke reports on landmark political events from Presidential elections to Franklin D. Roosevelt's funeral and the assassination of JFK. He reflects on the war in Vietnam, the Watergate scandal, the Monica Lewinsky affair, the Watts and Rodney King race riots in LA in 1965 and 1992, the Gulf War and the terrible events of 9/11. Here are Cooke's observations on the Challenger space shuttle explosion, Black Monday, the catastrophic San Francisco earthquake of 1989 and - in his final Letter - President Bush's difficulties with the situation in Iraq. But there are also Letters in a more personal vein, as Cooke reflects on topics close to his heart such as sport (the Ali v. Liston fight, baseball star Joe DiMaggio and golfer Bobby Jones) and music (pianist William Kapell, jazz singer Louis Armstrong and composer Irving Berlin). The Letters are set in their historical context with a specially commissioned script narrated by award-winning broadcast journalist Matt Frei. This collection also includes a bonus programme, 'Remembering Alistair Cooke'.
