Leicht ergraut, aber spitzbübisch wie eh und je erzählen die Herren Cleese (ursprünglicher Familienname: Cheese!), Idle, Jones, Gilliam und Palin köstliche Anekdoten über ihre Kindheit, ihr Studium, die frühen Einflüsse durch Peter Sellers, Dudley Moore oder die berüchtigte Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band und skurrile und oftmals chaotische Dreharbeiten. Aber auch Zwischenmenschliches wie interne Reibereien, Chapmans Alkoholismus, dessen Coming Out oder die wirklich außergewöhnlichen Grabreden von Cleese und Palin bei Chapmans Beerdigung geben einen tiefen Einblick in die unterschiedlichen Charaktere. Die 6stündige Doku lässt nicht nur sämtliche Python-Mitglieder (einschließlich Graham Chapman - selig), sondern auch deren Wegbegleiter und Kollegen sowie prominente Fans wie Dan Aykroyd, Simon Pegg, Tim Roth oder Bruce Dickinson zu Wort kommen. Selbst Elvis oder auch die Beatles waren große Anhänger des subversiven Humors der Pythons, und George Harrison, Led Zeppelin und Pink Floyd unterstützen sie sogar bei der Finanzierung einiger ihrer Filme!
Truthers: The New Roswell: Doctor Lawyer
In Jesus on Trial, New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus told through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His analysis of the texts becomes profoundly personal as he reflects on his own spiritual and intellectual odyssey from determined skeptic to devout Christian. Ultimately, Limbaugh concludes that the words Christians have treasured for centuries stand up to his exhaustive enquiry - including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels - and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

The thrilling young mystery series from internationally bestselling author John Grisham! In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he´s only thirteen years old, Theo Boone thinks he´s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk-and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much-maybe too much-he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial. A cold-blooded killer is about to go free, and only Theo knows the truth. The stakes are high, but Theo won´t stop until justice is served.
Inspired by the true story of a young man´s false imprisonment for murder, this is a gripping novel about a daughter´s fight for justice against the odds.In his first book for teenagers, Dick Lehr, a former reporter for the Boston Globe´s famous Spotlight Team, has re-imagined a case he investigated to create a compelling story about a daughter determined to prove her father´s innocence. On a hot summer night in Boston, a thirteen-year-old African-American girl became the innocent victim of gang-related gunfire. Amid public outcry, an immediate manhunt was on to catch the murderer, and a young African-American man was quickly apprehended, charged, and - wrongly - convicted of the crime. Trell was only a baby when her father was imprisoned, but she has always been certain of his innocence. Twelve years after his conviction, she persuades a down-on-his-luck reporter and a determined lawyer to help clear her father´s name. As they attempt to uncover back-door deals, track down crucial witnesses and unearth vital evidence that will prove her father´s innocence, it becomes clear that some people in the neighbourhood want to keep this information hidden - at any cost.
