Magnify Argo
Argo

Argo


Category: Media and Communications
Description: This is the declassified CIA story that inspired the new film from Ben Affleck and George Clooney. Tehran, November 1979. Militant students stormed the American embassy and held sixty Americans captive for a gruelling 444 days. But until now the CIA has never revealed the twist to the Iran Hostage Crisis: six Americans escaped. The escape plot was run by Antonio Mendez, head of the CIA's extraction team and a master of disguise. Mendez came up with an idea so daring and potentially foolish that it seemed destined for Hollywood...and indeed it was. He invented a fake sci-fi film called Argo (from the actual name of the CIA mission, a reference to Jason and the Argonauts). After announcing the production to the movie industry, Mendez put together a team of real 1970s Hollywood actors, directors and producers - along with covert CIA officers. They would travel to revolutionary Iran under a foreign film visa, and while 'scouting locations' throughout the country they would track down the six Americans who were hiding out. After giving them false identities as part of the film crew, they would spirit them back across the border. One part Ocean's 11 and another part Black Hawk Down, Mendez's mind-bogglingly complicated and risky gamble paid off: each escapee was extracted without a shot being fired. Mendez is considered one of the greatest officers in CIA history. The story of this, his greatest mission, has never been told.

The Best Of Miranda

The Best Of Miranda


Category: Media and Communications
Description: Well hello to you, Dear Book Peruser and thank you for your kind interest in my book o' Miranda. Here you will find my favourite six scripts, hand-picked from all three series, with introductions by moi, and some other tit-bits, and silliness. Because no book of this ilk should be without tit-bits and silliness. If nothing else it's fun to say tit-bits. Repeat after me: tit-bits. You're welcome. I hope you enjoy seeing the scripts in their pure written form on the page before they translated to what you have seen on screen. And if you're a lovely young person still at school let me know if your drama teacher ever lets you do an episode for the school play. Nothing would make me happier. Though I bagsy play Miranda. Your favourite, number one bestselling, comedian Miranda Hart is giving you an access-all-areas VIP backstage pass to her award-winning sitcom. Miranda Hart has won bundles of awards, written a bestselling book and completed a sell-out nationwide tour. But it was her award-winning BBC sitcom Miranda which first made her a much-loved household name. Miranda's identifiable and loveable character, unique wit and physical comedy struck a chord with millions making the show a national institution and Miranda the Queen of Comedy. Here Miranda gives us an access-all-areas VIP backstage pass to Miranda the sitcom. The Best of Miranda contains the full scripts of Miranda's six favourite episodes (including her original revises and annotations) so that you can, if you wish to, cast your family to re-enact choice moments in your living room. The book also includes Miranda's own account of just what goes in to the process of writing, rehearsing and filming, hilarious gossip from the making of the sitcom, previously unpublished photographs and material which didn't make the final edits. Other extras include recipes for Gary's favourite cakes, cringeworthy childhood photos of our favourite comedian, a step-by-step guide to making your own Fruit Friends and Vegetapals and a Marry Gary Board Game. The Best of Miranda is a beautiful and hilarious book which will delight Miranda's many fans and earn her many new ones.
