Capitalising on his remarkable success in On the Buses, Reg Varney took on the contrasting role of a third-rate holiday camp entertainer dreaming of stardom in this mid-seventies tragi-comedy feature. Also starring Diana Coupland and Lee Montague, The Best Pair of Legs in the Business was adapted from an individual ITV Playhouse drama and scripted by Emmerdale Farm creator Kevin Laffan - presented here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its correct aspect ratio. 'Sherry' Sheridan, a middle-aged compere and drag artiste currently stationed at a caravan site, is low on talent but high on ambition. Convinced he just needs one decent break to launch himself into the big time, he's relentlessly optimistic - but sadly unaware that his family life is crumbling around him. Can Sherry manage to secure both his job, and his marriage? SPECIAL FEATURES: [] Full-frame as-filmed version of main feature [] Original theatrical trailer [] Image gallery [] Promotional material PDFs

BBC journalist and environmentalist Rory Spowers wanted to finally live his dream and abandon life in London for a more ecologically sustainable lifestyle. Moving with his wife and two toddler sons to a 60-acre abandoned tea estate in Sri Lanka, Rory sets out to create a model organic farm there and earn his livelihood from the land. The fascinating story begins with the tsunami and Rory's sudden involvement with the relief efforts, and charts the course of his adventures over 12 months culminating in the launch of his new business (making a living by selling the produce he grows). It chronicles the highs and lows of this radical change, and reveals what it takes to live a sustainable life. It will also include tips for those of you who wish to live a more environmentally friendly life. Spowers'writing in'Three Men on a Bike', which recounted his story of buying the Goodies'bicycle and riding it across Africa for charity, was compared with Bryson, Palin and Hawks'for his storytelling, humour and intrepid spirit. Spowers'narrative brims with adventure, harrowing moments, and small triumphs as he comes to know the people and the land and works toward creating his dream of a sustainable, model forest garden.

Since gaining independence Kyrgyzstan has implemented drastic macro reforms torestructure its economy from the centrally planned type to the one oriented to marketrelations. Agricultural sector was always important for Kyrgyzstan’s economy and intransition agricultural reforms took the form of complete liberalization of the sector andprivatization of the collective farms.New class of private farmers emerged but is faced with numerous constraints andproblems to ensure stable agricultural food production and maintenance of the livelihoodstrategies in rural areas. The hope that as a result of the reforms the efficient marketswould emerge did not materialize. Complete state withdrawal led to underinvestment inrural infrastructure and failing input and output markets. There is great risk that withoutpublic policies the rural economy of Kyrgyzstan would fall into a situation of persistentunder development and poverty trap.One of many reasons for the absence of efforts to deal with problems of farmers in thepost reform era has to do with lack of appropriate information on the effect of the reformson the rural sector, lack of the knowledge on policy options and policy impacts on privatefarmers. This study attempts to fill this gap and contribute to formulating and optimizingthe viable options of rural development strategies.It is argued that rethinking the role of the state in the post reform period is necessary forreorienting the public policies away from minimalist toward more activist approach, asthe former is not deemed appropriate under the conditions of the transition economy.In this study, the village level approach is taken to study the behavior of the rural farmhouseholds in Kyrgyzstan. It is motivated by the distinctive features of the rural sector inKyrgyzstan, namely: remoteness, the importance of the village/local economy andheterogeneity of rural households, the existence of the local linkages between villagehouseholds.The study was based on unique survey data of rural farm households which was collectedby author in a remote village on the South of Kyrgyzstan. The study found that villagehouseholds take decision in non separable way, which in turn confirms the fact that inpost reform period farmers are faced with imperfect markets. This highlights theimportance of household non tradables in making production and consumption decisionsof rural households.This study developed the village social accounting matrix which in quantitative waydemonstrated the heterogeneity of rural households and numerous inter householdlinkages that exist in local economy. The distinctive feature of the village SAM used inthis study is in incorporation of the local markets and accounting for non separability ofrural households.The underdevelopment of the rural sector in Kyrgyzstan is argued to be very muchrelated to the spatial dimension of the rural areas i.e. lack of access: to markets,technology, external inputs, capital and limited labor opportunities. Based on this, it isargued that appropriate rural strategies should involve as central element the easinggeographical and access constraints.The study employed the village computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to studythe potential effects of the rural policies. It is argued that in the presence of the localinteractions between different farm households, the village CGE modeling approachyields consistent picture of the production and consumption behavior.The policy simulation runs showed the impact of policy measures on the levels ofproduction, income, marketed sale and home consumption. The results seem to providesupport to the policies that aim at improving access to credit, making financial resourcesavailable for increase of household capital stock and at improving access to bettertechnologies, thus increasing the agricultural productivity of the households. Thesepolicies produced better outcome in terms of production and income growth, whileequally benefiting all household groups. In large extent the findings highlight thosefactors that are more constraining and critical to village development (e.g. credit, capitaland new technologies). At the same time, other studied policy instruments like reductionof transaction costs, external input price subsidies and expansion of labor opportunitiesare also highly relevant for the village development, but involve large trade offs in termsof marketed production and differential income gains for different household groups.It is believed that these findings would contribute to the efforts of identifying the keydevelopment pathways and sectoral investment priorities that help to launch the villageeconomy and rural sector of Kyrgyzstan in the direction of sustainable development.

Genomics of the RosaceaeEdited by Kevin M. Folta and Susan E. GardinerPlant Genetics and Genomics: Crops and Models book series provides current overviews and summaries of the state of the art in genetics and genomics for each of the important crop plants and genetic models for which such a volume does not now exist or is out of date. Volumes will focus on a single crop, species, or group of close relatives, including especially those plants that already have advanced genomic resources developed and preferably complete or advancing genome sequences.The Rosaceae Family includes many significant fruit, nut, ornamental and wood crops. Traditionally their large stature, long juvenility periods, and often complicated genomes presented little opportunity for genetic or genomic inquiry. But the new millennium brings with it new challenges to production of the highly desirable products from this family, challenges that genetic and genomic tools may help resolve. Together necessity and scientific curiosity conspire to launch deep exploration of rosaceous crop biology. This volume originates at an acceleration point for Roscaeae genomics. A foundation of outstanding tools has been developed in a cross-section of species. The successes and failures of various approaches have been documented from model systems and inform our attack on questions within the valued crops within the Rosaceae. The text within describes the species and products of this plant family along with a synopsis of the current state of research presented from experts active on the front line of Rosaceae genomics research.Kevin M. Folta is a native of Chicago, Illinois USA. Kevin completed his Ph.D. work in identification of blue light regulated promoter elements and post-transcriptional light-regulated mRNA stability at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Postdoctoral work at the University of Wisconsin centered on light regulated electrophysiology, gene expression and high-resolution growth monitoring. Kevin has maintained a unique research program in photomorphogenesis and a separate emphasis in strawberry genomics at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. He is active in public science education and has won awards for dedication to undergraduate research.Susan E. Gardiner grew up on a sheep farm in Christchurch, New Zealand. Home schooled as a child, Sue later obtained both her undergraduate degree and PhD in Biochemistry from Otago University in Dunedin, New Zealand. Her post-doctoral period was spent in Freiburg, Germany, where she worked to elucidate the mechanism of differential regulation of the enzymes of phenylpropanoid biosynthesis in a parsley cell culture system irradiated with UV light. In 1980, Sue joined the Plant Physiology Division of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) in Palmerston North, New Zealand where she first worked on the elucidation of chloroplast glycerolipid biosynthesis and later developed techniques for distinguishing varieties of pasture grasses and legumes. Sue's work on gene mapping in apple began in 1990 at DSIR and continued when DSIR was restructured into HortResearch in 1992. Today, Sue leads a team working to unravel the genetic architecture of traits of fruit crops central to New Zealand fruit industries. Technological advancements in Genomics at HortResearch proved to be critical in her success in identification of 'breeder-friendly markers for traits of economic value.' Sue has developed an extensive network of international collaborators in Rosaceae genomics, and recently completed a 2-year term as Chair of the International Rosaceae Genomics Initiative. Sue derives her greatest satisfaction from seeing her team's marker technologies being used by breeders.
