Eddie Lockjaw Davis swings way out here – working in that cool cooking mode from the 50s, with organist Shirley Scott a very important partner on the date! The group's got a larger sound than usual – thanks to the addition of trombonist Steve Pullman – a player we don't know much, but who shifts the groove nicely away from some of Davis' more staid cookbook albums. Rhythm is by George Duvivier on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – and titles include "Bahia", "Foxy", "Bingo Domingo", and "Can't Get Out Of This Mood".
The great white shark and the killer whale are the most formidable predators in the sea. These animals are so dangerous that they would never challenge each other…or so we thought. One morning, off the Californian coast, a boatload of tourists witnessed the ultimate clash of the titans: an unexpected killing challenges the great white shark's supremacy as the ultimate predator when one became prey to a killer whale. The Whale That Ate Jaws examines this extraordinary incident. Featuring amazing underwater footage of two whales feeding on the shark, this show reveals an astonishing new perspective on the relationship between the ocean's two top predators.
You want sharks? We’ve got sharks, because… SHARK WEEK is back! Returning to Discovery Channel screens from 10-16th August, Shark Week features a raft of programmes on the razor-toothed predators. Highlights include Airjaws Finding Colossus, in which shark experts Chris Fallows and Jeff Kurr visit the legendary Seal island in South Africa in search of Great Whites; Mythbuster Jawsome, which counts down the 25th biggest shark myths of all time and Sharkpocalypse, which explores the alarming trend of sharks moving closer to shorelines and its link to the increase in shark attacks. This year also features Megalodon, which scored a huge hit in the US exploring the myth around the massive prehistoric shark. Did it die out 200 million years ago, or is it still alive today? You decide.
