Glen Campbell - I'll Be Me

With worldwide hits such as Wichita Lineman and Rhinestone Cowboy, legendary country and Western artist Glen Campbell has released more than 70 albums, sold 45 million plus records earning gold and platinum albums galore, including nine number ones in a career that has spanned some 60 years. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005 and earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.

In 2011 Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour, across the US, Australia and Europe with more than 150 sell out performances. But this was no ordinary tour, he had recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, but instead of hanging up his cowboy boots and waiting to succumb to the inevitable he and his wife announced his illness and the intended farewell tour to the World.

His incredible tour and struggle with the devastating effects of the disease has been documented by James Keach in the moving feature documentary Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me, which makes its UK DVD debut courtesy of Simply Media on 23 May 2016.

Fred

With his specs, cloth cap and infectious toothy grin, Bolton born steeplejack Fred Dibnah was instantly recognisable. He burst onto TV screens in 1978 blithely repairing Bolton's town hall clock at the dizzying height of some 250 feet and quickly found a place in the nation's heart, becoming a familiar face on TV for many years. Now some of Fred's most famous programmes can be enjoyed again thanks to the forthcoming DVD release from Simply Media.

Following that first local news report, the BBC commissioned the BAFTA winning 1980 documentary 'Fred Dibnah: Steeplejack', which showed him demolishing giant factory chimneys with ease and casually hopping across the chimney tops with death-defying agility.

After that, eight 30-minute programmes were made, exploring Fred's eccentric life as a steeplejack and steam tractor fanatic, and now for the first time together on DVD, the eight episode 1982 BBC television series 'Fred' arrives alongside 'Fred Dibnah: Steeplejack'.
