  • 7-BLU-RAY SET, THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
  • BOOK, THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
$360

7-BLU-RAY SET, THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
The Roosevelts: An Intimate History chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of the most prominent and influential family in American politics. It is the first time in a major documentary television series that their individual stories have been interwoven into a single narrative.

This 7-part, 14-hour film follows the Roosevelts for more than a century, from Theodore's birth in 1858 to Eleanor's death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th President of the United States and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd President of the United States. Together, these three individuals not only redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, but also redefined the role of the United States within the wider world.

The series encompasses the history the Roosevelts helped to shape: the creation of National Parks, the digging of the Panama Canal, the passage of innovative New Deal programs, the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights abroad. It is also an intimate human story about love, betrayal, family loyalty, personal courage, and the conquest of fear.

Bonus Material | Special Features: Making of The Roosevelts ,13 bonus videos, deleted scenes with an introduction by Ken Burns, English subtitles. Running Time: Approx. 840 minutes on 7 discs

BOOK, THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY
An extraordinarily vivid and personal portrait of America's greatest political family and its enormous impact on our nation -- the tie-in volume to the PBS documentary to air in the fall of 2014.
This handsome, engaging, revelatory book is an intimate history of three extraordinary individuals from the same extraordinary family -- Theodore, Eleanor, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Geoffrey C. Ward, distilling more than thirty years of thinking and writing about the Roosevelts, and the acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns help us understand for the first time that, despite the fierce partisanship of their eras and ours, the Roosevelts were far more united than divided.

All the history the Roosevelts made is here, but this is primarily a book about human beings, each of whom somehow overcame obstacles that would have undone less forceful personalities, and all of whom wrestled in their lives with issues still familiar to the rest of us -- anger and the need for forgiveness, courage and cowardice, confidence and self-doubt, loyalty to family and the need to be oneself. This is the story of the Roosevelts -- no other American family ever touched so many lives. Hardcover, 528 pages

Return to Downton AbbeyCOMBO, BLU-RAY SET: DOWNTON ABBEY SEASON 5 & DOWNTON ABBEY SEASONS 1-4 LIMITED EDITION SET

DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 1
Downton Abbey - a sprawling, lavish Edwardian mansion nestled in the Yorkshire landscape -- needs an heir. Dame Maggie Smith stars as Violet, the stubborn Dowager Countess of Grantham, matriarch of Downton. Hugh Bonneville stars as her son, the stoic, unflappable Lord Crawley; Elizabeth McGovern is his far-sighted American wife, Cora. From Academy Award-winner Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park).

DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 2
As the Great War rages across Europe, discord is sown even into the serene Yorkshire countryside. Simmering tensions behind the gates of Downton Abbey are beginning to come to a boil as the men and women of Downton do their part on both the front lines and the home front. What's more, the brutality and intensity of war seem to inflame more familiar passions--love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal--leaving family and staff alike to struggle in an ever-changing world, against a host of new demons.

Dame Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, and Elizabeth McGovern return to lead the stellar cast of familiar faces; and Maria Doyle Kennedy, Iain Glen, and Zoe Boyle arrive to add fresh intrigue to the second season of delicious, Emmy® Award-winning drama.

DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 3
The Great War is over and a long-awaited engagement is on, but all is not tranquil at Downton Abbey as wrenching social changes, romantic intrigues, and personal crises grip the majestic English country estate for a third thrilling season. As other great houses are crippled psychologically and financially in the wake of World War I, Robert, Earl of Grantham, sticks to his duty to maintain Downton more firmly than ever. But in this changing landscape nothing is assured, and could it be that even the war-weary Crawleys must fight a new battle to safeguard their beloved Downton?

The returning cast includes Hugh Bonneville, Dame Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, Dan Stevens, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Penelope Wilton, Joanne Froggatt, Brendan Coyle and a host of others, joined by Shirley MacLaine, who plays Martha Levinson, the very American mother of Cora, Countess of Grantham. Written and created by Julian Fellowes, Downton Abbey, Season 3 is a Carnival Films and Masterpiece coproduction, in association with NBCUniversal.

DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 4
The sweeping Downton Abbey saga continues with a fourth season of drama, romance, and family intrigue. Dame Maggie Smith stars as Violet, the stubborn Dowager Countess of Grantham, matriarch of Downton. Hugh Bonneville stars as her son, the stoic Lord Crawley; Elizabeth McGovern is his American wife, Cora, and Michelle Dockery is their daughter Lady Mary. From Academy Award®-winner Julian Fellowes.

DOWNTON ABBEY: SEASON 5
Season 5 of the international hit finds the Crawley family and the staff struggling with responsibilities and choices as they adjust to life in the Roaring Twenties. The beloved ensemble cast includes Dame Maggie Smith, Elizabeth McGovern, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Joanne Froggatt, and a host of others.

$144

BLU-RAY, NATURE: SNOW MONKEYS
In the frigid valleys of Japan's Shiga Highlands, a troop of snow monkeys make their way and raise their families in a complex society of rank and privilege where each knows their place. Their leader is still new to the job and something of a solitary grouch. But one little monkey, innocently unaware of his own lowly social rank, reaches out to this lonely leader, forming a bond with him that manages over time to warm his less than sunny disposition. It is a rare and remarkable gesture that alters both their lives.

Changing seasons bring new babies to care for, a profusion of insects and blossoms to eat, family disagreements to squabble over and tragedies to overcome. Mating season brings competition for females, as the days grow shorter and colder in a rush toward winter. But with their now confident leader to guide them and their families to shelter and care for them, this troop of snow monkeys is ready to face the world.

DVD, NATURE: THE FUNKIEST MONKEYS
There's a magical rainforest that's home to Tarzan … Samson … Uhura … and everyone's favorite, Peanut. These charming little characters are crested black macaques, feisty beach bum monkeys with punk hairstyles, expressive faces, and copper-colored eyes who first enchanted filmmaker Colin Stafford-Johnson 25 years ago during a treip he made to Sulawesi.

After learning that their numbers have dropped dramatically since that time, he makes a return visit to find out why and to see if he can help. He teams up with a local expert to learn more about them and their plight and proceeds to fall in love all over again. In the end, he decides to make a film that will allow him to share their story with the local schools and communities, in the hope that a new understanding of the wonderful creatures in their midst will make them want to help as well.

Running Time: Approx. 60 minutes

CAP WITH NATURE LOGO
This black cotton cap has the Nature log embroidered on the front in gold thread and an adjustable buckle.
