TT3D: Closer to the Edge DVD

This is the cinema blockbuster which set a new standard for sports documentary-making, a film which went inside the Isle of Man TT like never before, exploring the thrill, the triumph, the tragedy and personalities which make it such an enthralling motorcycle festival. The 3D documentary received high praise from film critics and movie-goers, including many with no interest in the TT or even motorcycles. However, if you are a fan of motorsport, especially the two-wheeled kind, this is essential viewing. The film charts the entire 2010 TT, following many of the big names, notably Guy Martin, John McGuinness, Ian Hutchinson and Conor Cummins, through the highs and lows. The film explores the riders’ motivation, goes behind-the-scenes with them away from the track and addresses the dangers of the sport, including the terrible loss of Paul Dobbs and the horrendous accidents suffered by Martin and Cummins.

Closer to the Edge is available in a 2-disc standard DVD format with bonus features including Guy Martin clips, Richard ‘Milky' Quayle describes the TT course, Bridgete Dobbs reflecting on TT2010 and the future, Stephen Davison - Photographer and author, impromptu conversation between John McGuinness and his dad, John, John McGuinness home movie, Jenny Tinmouth, Nick Crowe - sidecar champion and Charge, a film narrated by Ewan McGregor. It is also available in in a special collector’s edition which includes the film in 3D Blu-ray and high definition Blu-ray formats, set with the same bonus features.

TT 2011 Official Review DVD

Relive the action, drama and atmosphere of the amazing 2011 Isle of Man TT fuelled by Monster Energy. The Official Review features comprehensive coverage of every race, practice and the unique festival atmosphere which surrounds the world’s great road race. This is racing at its most extreme – speeds of more than 190mph just inches from hedges, houses and walls.

New trackside camera angles, breathtaking aerial footage and white-knuckle on-board sequences put you at the heart of the action for unrivalled race coverage, exclusive behind-the-scenes access and special features. This year revealing thermal imaging technology appears alongside the stunning ultra slow-motion camera footage. Once again, expert commentary and analysis comes courtesy of former racers Steve Parrish and James Whitham, and, new for 2011, TT-winner Steve Plater joins the team.

‘King of the Mountain’ John McGuinness reclaimed his crown with stunning rides in the Dainese Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT, although fan’s favourite Guy Martin made the Morecambe missile work for his 17th victory every mile of the way. Michael Dunlop, Bruce Anstey, Michael Rutter and the Sidecar team of Klaus Klaffenbock and Dan Sayle all made welcome returns to the top step of the TT podium, plus the 100th anniversary of racing on the legendary 37.7-mile Mountain course celebrated new victors – Lincolnshire’s Gary Johnson and TT Sidecar regulars John Holden and Andrew Winkle. Eight races, seven winners and some of the closest competition seen in a century of racing on the Moutain – and it is all here.
