Mondo, in partnership with Walt Disney Records, is proud to present Alan Silvestri’s soundtrack to the film WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, available on vinyl for the first time in 30 years.

On three-hour overview of the Prado Museum we will get a broad introduction to this exciting collection, arming you with the tools for a more in-depth study at a later date. Our small group will allow us plenty of time for questions as we wind our way through the galleries. We'll begin by exploring the paintings that once formed part of the private collections of Spanish monarchs. These works form the core of the Prado's collections, and include such masterpieces as The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch and The Descent from the Cross by Roger van der Weyden, two of the most important paintings in the museum. We'll trace Spanish history through the art of the Prado, following the Habsburg dynasty in Spain, and learn how Charles V and his son Philip II became prominent patrons of Italian artists such as Titian.
Gol D. Roger was known as the Pirate King, the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and death of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the location of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece (which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame), and quite possibly the most coveted of titles for the person who found it, the title of the Pirate King. Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy that defies your standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate who ransacks villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of pure wonder; the thought of an exciting adventure and meeting new and intriguing people, along with finding One Piece, are his reasons of becoming a pirate. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unveiling dark mysteries and battling strong enemies, all in order to reach One Piece.

Jill Gascoine stars as tough, no-nonsense female cop Maggie Forbes. Made at a time when there were very few ranking female officers in the police force, The Gentle Touch not only showed police procedure within a Metropolitan Police CID unit but also allowed insight into how a woman might cope with such a role in what was very much a man’s world. Instantly successful with the public, The Gentle Touch ran for five years before spinning off into another series - C.A.T.S. Eyes. Following the continuing challenges faced by the recently widowed D.I. Maggie Forbes, this third series of The Gentle Touch features more powerful and contemporary storylines that reflected the changing nature of police work in 1980s Britain. With appearances by George Sewell and scripts by a distinguished team of writers that included Terence Feely (Thriller) and Roger Marshall (The Sweeney, The Professionals), it’s no surprise that The Gentle Touch was one of the most successful police dramas ever made. This complete series was originally screened in 1981 and 1982.
