Two of the most relaxing sights a person can enjoy from the comfort of their sofa are the hypnotic, warming rhythms of the flames dancing on a real coal fire, and the soothing, fluid motions of tropical fish as they circle a well-stocked fish tank. Unfortunately, getting to the stage where you can kick back and watch those activities involve some hard work, a significant wedge of money and getting your hands dirty. Unless, of course, you're watching them on DVD.
The Fireplace DVD recreates the wonderfully relaxing ambience of a roaring log fire, coal fire, coal embers... Gas fire? Electric fire? Tongue firmly in cheek, this new release has really rekindled our burning passion for the hot-stuff. Though packed with a variety of heat based episodes, it also boasts wacky extras such as subtitles ("Gentle flutter of flames... Crackle...") and an amusing insight into the Discovery of Fire.
