* Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award * Silver Medal Society of Illustrators * * Named a Best Book of the Year by The New York Times, The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, NPR, Comics Beat, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Kirkus Reviews, and Library Journal This ';ingenious reckoning with the past' (The New York Times), by award-winning artist Nora Krug investigates the hidden truths of her family's wartime history in Nazi Germany.Nora Krug was born decades after the fall of the Nazi regime, but the Second World War cast a long shadow over her childhood and youth in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. Yet she knew little about her own family's involvement; though all four grandparents lived through the war, they never spoke of it. After twelve years in the US, Krug realizes that living abroad has only intensified her need to ask the questions she didn't dare to as a child. Returning to Germany, she visits archives, conducts research, and interviews family members, uncovering in the process the stories of her maternal grandfather, a driving teacher in Karlsruhe during the war, and her father's brother Franz-Karl, who died as a teenage SS soldier. In this extraordinary quest, ';Krug erases the boundaries between comics, scrapbooking, and collage as she endeavors to make sense of 20th-century history, the Holocaust, her German heritage, and her family's place in it all' (The Boston Globe). A highly inventive, ';thoughtful, engrossing' (Minneapolis Star-Tribune) graphic memoir, Belonging ';packs the power of Alison Bechdel's Fun Home and David Small's Stitches' (NPR.org).
Tom Baker stars as Sir Walter Bullivant with David Robb as man of action Richard Hannay in a thrilling BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. In this classic tale of wartime espionage, Richard Hannay's living nightmare begins at home with the discovery of a dead man in his London flat. He becomes an innocent on the run, pursued by the police for a murder he didn't commit. In Scotland Hannay realises that the notebook he recovered from the dead man is worth far more than he first thought, not least of all to a gang of German spies who will apparently stop at nothing to retrieve it. The Foreign Office in London is his last refuge of safety, and when Sir Walter Bullivant becomes convinced of Hannay's innocence the two join forces. If they are to foil German plans to attack the British fleet, they must first unlock the notebook's secret of the thirty-nine steps... Faithful to many aspects of John Buchan's original novel, this adaptation also pays homage to the Alfred Hitchcock film which it famously inspired.

But the task becomes more desperate than ever when Dan discovers the force behind the invasion...

Dare must stop the aliens, but can he really resort to genocide in order to save the human race?
Runtime: 66 minutesBrilliant test pilot, Dan Dare, is chosen to fly the Anastasia - a new experimental spacecraft - on its maiden voyage to Venus.

A creature destined to become Dan Dare's nemesis - and Earth's greatest threat...

Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy, a world of the not-too-distant future in which freedom has been surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime which rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses. This is the setting for the parable of Evey, a young woman saved from death by a masked man calling himself V. Beguiling and dangerous, V ignites the fuse of revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to shed the blanket of tyranny and oppression that they have permitted themselves to be cloaked in. While those in power take steps to neutralize the threat, police pursue the mystery of V, unaware of the terrible truth that awaits them. But it is Evey who, with V as her enigmatic guide, sets out on the painful path of deception and self-discovery, deconstruction and re-creation, vindication and vengeance.
