This authorized guide ...takes fans through six decades of one of the entertainment industry's greatest, most-enduring film franchises ever, and it boasts nearly 1,000 photographs, posters, and movie images from the filmmakers' extensive archives. 007 expert Will Lawrence, author of Blood, Sweat and Bond- Behind the Scenes of Spectre, delivers an indispensable guide to what happened in which film - and when - providing everything new and longtime fans alike could ever want to know about the world of James Bond. That phenomenal world has been at the center of EON Productions' iconic film franchise, the long-running big screen series in history, since the release of Dr. No in 1962, and continuing later this year with No Time to Die.

            Whip-smart and fabulously funny, the women of vaudeville entertained Australia and challenged ideas of how women should behave. Opening a forgotten case of photographs, Sharon Connolly begins a search for the great aunt she never knew. Gladys Shaw was a whistling comedian, a sing...er and saxophonist, an eccentric dancer and a whip cracker - one of the 'girls' who once made Australia laugh. They were musical comics, character actors and male impersonators in an entertainment industry being transformed by cinema and radio. They parodied men, played naive maidens and maiden aunts, but they were modern women - independent, determined and sometimes wild. And they lived in a world of changing ideas about how women were expected to behave and dress. Filmmaker Sharon Connolly finds a sisterhood of jesters who charmed and surprised the backblocks, towns and big cities of Australia and New Zealand during the early 20th century. With a foreword by historian Professor Ann Curthoys, My Giddy Aunt tells how funny girls became entertaining women, while negotiating a society made for men.

            *Pre-order Now* _______________ 'Ronnie has told me stories from his past over our years together on the Antiques Roadshow. But, reading his autobiography, all I can say is, yes, I am surprised. Is there anything he hasn't done? Ronnie has overcome a heart-breaking start in life ...to achieve great success and no one deserves it more. What a dude, what a life!' - Fiona Bruce For decades, Ronnie Archer-Morgan has brought to life the fascinating, often surprising backstories behind our most cherished heirlooms and household objects on the Antiques Roadshow. Now, he tells his own unlikely story. Born in the fifties to a Sierra Leonean mother battling mental health problems, Ronnie spent his childhood in and out of care. After difficult beginnings, marked by abuse, racism and brushes with both criminals and the police, he got into music, managing to get DJ gigs and, later, worked as a celebrity hairdresser for Vidal Sassoon and Smile in the height of seventies London. A flair for spotting antiques led him to start his own Knightsbridge gallery, ultimately becoming one of the most respected figures in the industry, culminating in a regular spot as an expert on the nation's Sunday favourite, Antiques Roadshow. Told with rich warmth, this is an extraordinary journey from deprivation and abuse to adventure and success against the odds - with stories of the incredible objects which shaped the way.
