Doctor Faustus (Shakespeare's Globe Theatre)
Manufacturer: Kultur Video Brand: Kultur Films Inc.
Doctor Faustus, restless for knowledge, forsakes scholarship for magic and makes a pact with the Devil: if the veil spirit Mephistopheles will serve him for 24 years, Faustus will yield his soul to the Devil after death. It isn't long before Faustus has doubts about the bargain, but Mephistopheles has plenty of entertainment at hand to distract Faustus from the terrifying reality of his position and the prospect of its agonizing conclusion. In Doctor Faustus, the greatest tragedy in English before Shakespeare, Marlowe puts some of the finest poetry ever written for the stage and a good deal of anarchic comedy at the service of a mythic tale illustrating mankind's insatiable desire for knowledge and power. Featuring Paul Hilton as Faustus and Arthur Darvill as Mephistopheles: 'elegant and intelligent verse speakers' The Times.

Live in Athens [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Eagle Rock Entertainment
In October 1987 after many months on the road, it was in the elevated surroundings of the hillside open-air theatre at Lycabettus overlooking Athens that the So tour came to a climactic close. The three nights were filmed in what was the first-ever Peter Gabriel concert to be committed to film. As a concert film, it was brilliantly shot and has now been equally brilliantly remastered, a crystal-clear record of Gabriel and band in their mid-80s pomp. The viewer is placed right in the heart of the action all the way, from the band's synchronized choreography on opening number This Is The Picture, right through to the skin-pricking closer Biko. In between, we're lost in music, spellbound by the spectacle, totally absorbed by the imperfection-free tightness of a band that's been on the road for so long. Bonus Features:DISC 1: Youssou N Dour's opening set with his band Le Super Etoile de Dakar introduced by Peter Gabriel: (1) Immigres (2) Kocc Barma (3) Nelson Mandela (4) Ndobine (5) Sama Dome / My DaughterPaul Gambaccini & Peter Gabriel interview from 1986.Sledgehammer original promo video in HD for the first time.DISC 2: The Play DVD featuring 23 of Peter Gabriel's ground breaking promotional videos with bonus video introductions, a live performance of Games Without Frontiers from 2004, original promo videos from Modern Love (1977) and The Nest That Sailed The Sky (2000), trailers for A Family Portrait, Growing Up Live and Secret World Live.Track Listing:DISC 1 (BLU-RAY) LIVE IN...
