Primrose, Patriot, Poppet, Potomac and Phil are five golden and black Labrador puppies, chosen to undergo two years of guide dog training but, typically, only one will meet the rigorous standards expected of them and be selected as a fully licensed guide dog. Who will be the Pick of the Litter? A ‘dogumentary' that is educational, uplifting and, of course, full of adorable puppies, this is an inspiring film for all ages.

New to Order on DVD

Bumblebee; The Favourite; Colette

This week's new DVD releases include Transformers spin-off Bumblebee, a surprisingly poignant and action packed film about a young girl who, whilst grieving the loss of her father, befriends a giant robot from outer space in the late 1980s. 

Additionally, two period dramas that explore female empowerment are also released this week. The Favourite, a hit on the awards circuit boasting three stunning performances from Olivia Coleman (Best Actress winner at the Oscars®), Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, is a dark comedy exploring Queen Anne's historic reign. Meanwhile, Colette, starring Keira Knightley, tells the story of the famous french author who must overcome the societal constraints of being a woman in 20th century Paris.
