When Rachel and her mother move to Mrs. Moore´s house - the one with the greenhouse, right next to the Line - Rachel starts questioning things. There are so many rumors of the horrible things that lie beyond the Line - in a place called Away - but no one dares to talk about it. And it´s no use asking questions, especially of Mrs. Moore, who has always lived by the Line, or of her mother, who is just happy to have a place to stay, especially since Rachel´s father died in the war. But then, Rachel comes across a recorded message - one that could only have come from Away. And the voice on the recorder is asking for help... As things start to unravel, the question becomes: How far is Rachel willing to go to cross the Line and do the right thing? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne Hancock.

When Hollywood It Boy Reid Alexander arrives on location to shoot his next movie, his goals are the same as always: film another blockbuster hit, and enjoy his celebrity status to the fullest while doing so. His costar is a virtual unknown with whom he had blazing hot chemistry during her auditions. The universe is lining up nicely to grant whatever he wants, as usual, until he’s confronted with unexpected obstacles on location - like a bitter ex-girlfriend and a rival for the first girl to spark his genuine interest in years. Emma Pierce just got her big break after more than a decade of filming commercials for grape juice, department stores, and tampons, and more recently, bit parts in made-for-TV movies. Nailing the lead role in a wide-release film sent her agent, father, and stepmother into raptures, and should have done the same for her. The Problem? Emma is experiencing a building desire to be normal, and starring in a silly, modernized adaptation of one of her favorite novels - opposite the very hot Reid Alexander - isn’t going to advance that aspiration. Indie actor Graham Douglas isn’t overly picky when it comes to film roles. If it pays, he’ll do it. Besides, his friend Brooke Cameron snatched up the role of the bitchy hot girl and could use his help as a buffer, because her ex is the star. Graham has no problem keeping a handle on the situation, until he finds himself attracted to Reid’s costar, Emma, the girl Reid is pursuing full-throttle with his standard arsenal of charm, good looks, and arrogance. 1.

And that´s the most important thing, even if Angie can´t see how Jess truly feels. Being the girl no one quite notices is OK with Jess anyway. If nobody notices her, she´s free to watch everyone else. But when Angie begins to fall for Margot Adams, a girl from the nearby boarding school, Jess can see it coming a mile away.

Dr Freeman is a man of great integrity and kindness. His care has helped me through the good times and the hardships of competing in the highest level of sport. (Sir Bradley Wiggins)As team doctor for British Cycling and Team Sky, Dr Richard Freeman treated the world´s most successful cyclists, such as Sir Chris Hoy and Sir Bradley Wiggins, Laura Trott and Victoria Pendleton. From 2009 until 2017, the ´Doc´ was part of the team who became national heroes with Olympic and Tour de France victories. In The Line, Dr Freeman reveals the medical principles and practices that helped lead these athletes to success - ideas that we now consider commonplace, but many of which were in fact the Doc´s own innovations. And in a sport where there´s an ethical line as well as a finishing line, Dr Freeman gives a frank and open account in response to allegations of misuse of medical treatment to enhance performance. ´´Without Dr Freeman, my career would have been shorter and less successful.´´ (Liam Phillips, BMX World Champion) 1.

How far will they go for their freedom - once they decide what freedom really means? In an unspecified future, the United States´ borders have receded behind a salt line - a ring of scorched earth that protects its citizens from deadly disease-carrying ticks.

Few have any reason to venture out of zone, except for the adrenaline junkies who pay a fortune to tour what´s left of nature. Those among the latest expedition include a pop star and his girlfriend, Edie; the tech giant Wes; and Marta, a seemingly simple housewife.
