From PR Lauren Archer:

The films in the series have had you laughing out loud crying for more, but all good things must come to an end and the Random Bandits series has been as good as it gets. So this new episode will sadly be the last (for the time being at least).

"It’s a wolf eat duck world. But it’s a world where little boys can find extraordinary courage and catch the wolf!"

Content Republic are pleased to announce that BREAKTHRU
FILMS’ OSCAR® WINNER PETER & THE WOLF is now available to watch online.

Peter & the Wolf, produced by BreakThru Films, is the animated film version of Prokofiev’s classic work directed by an extraordinary new animation talent, Suzie Templeton and set to a special new recording by the Philharmonia Orchestra.
Prokofiev’s story has resonated deeply with over five generations of children worldwide, enchanted by its power and sense of fun. This new film re-works Prokofiev’s popular tale, giving it some 21st century twists and an environmental theme, whilst staying true to the original story.

Peter, a young orphan, lives in a fortified cottage on the edge of a deep Russian forest, guarded by his over-protective Grandfather. Isolated from those who live in the town and ignored by the local children, Peter’s only friends are his pet Duck and a mischievous Bird, who entice him to seek adventure outside the walls of the cottage.  Despite his Grandfather forbidding Peter from going beyond the boundary walls, Peter’s curiosity gets the better of him.  Stealing the keys, he bursts out into the wild forest to explore.

The film is now available for download from iTunes at £1.49 from iTunes. A preview clip of the film is below:

London River still

Set against the backdrop of the 7th July 2005 bombings, London River tells the story of a friendship which develops between two seemingly unconnected people - Elizabeth (Brenda Bleythn) and Ousmane (Sotigui Kouyate).  Both of them have come to London to search for their children who are missing in the aftermath of the bombings.

Although they come from different religious backgrounds - Ousmane is an African Muslim living in France and Elizabeth is a white Christian living in Guernsey, they share the same hope of finding their children alive. Putting aside their cultural differences, they give each other the strength to continue the search and maintain their faith in humanity.
