Help me find a "Man DVD" for DH - not Top Gear if at all possible

He likes motor racing (mainly F1 but anything with an engine will do hmm), Air Crash Investigation, Trains (secret train spotter) and horror (which I intensely dislike so would rather not indulge that particular fondness).

Gawd, he sounds a prize, doesn't he? grin
I almost feel defensive now and feel the need to say that he also likes kittens, enjoys cuddles on the sofa and cries at soppy ads….

So, any ideas?
Amazon Prime is a condition as well of course!

TIA smile

Is that Pete Waterman series on DVD?

LeftyLoony Sun 21-Dec-14 10:09:44

Or this

Ahardyfool Sun 21-Dec-14 10:11:01

Is there any Guy Martin stuff in DVDS form maybe?

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Dec-14 10:11:40

Oh, good ideas, both! Thank you.

I had not thought of searching for National Geographic DVDs - see I know, MN would help me out grin

Go on Amazon Movies & TV and select Documentaries, then New or Best Sellers - that should give you lots of ideas.

There are new documentaries on Ali and Le Mans. The David Beckham rainforest adventure is out on DVD. Michael Portillo's great railway journeys. What about Senna or Rush?

If he likes horror there is a lovely set of the classic Universal Horrors on DVD or Blu-ray. There is also a Guillermo Del Toro Collection which is a bit more highbrow if you want to avoid the gorno genre!

Lefty, I take you meant Pete Waterman the train man, not PW the popster? grin

TondelayoSchwarzkopf Sun 21-Dec-14 10:13:59

By the way, I like trains, engines and also used work distributing horror movies and I am DEFINITELY a prize. grin

Same bloke isn't it?

The guy martin 'closer to the edge dvd' is pretty good.

MaxsMummy2012 Sun 21-Dec-14 10:19:03

And there's a dvd about Ayrton Senna, I think it was just called Senna which is supposed to be good.

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Dec-14 10:22:16

Is it the same guy?? Really?
Gosh, I am actually quite impressed shock

Just got this one - it'll go down a treat. DH and BiL will watch it together and enjoy all the crashes hmm

We've got Senna and many many many other racing DVDs… <bored>
But hey ho, it's Christmas!

Glad you've found something suitable fsmile

I was going to suggest the 'long way down/round' dvds or 'by any means'. But they'd only work for motorbike enthusiasts. so we own them all

PacificDogwood Sun 21-Dec-14 10:42:45

Oh, we greatly enjoyed the Wrong way round DVDs - like I said, anything with an engine will do: tractor racing, lorry racing, classic cars, speed boats… Sigh.

NotEvenAnEnormouseStirred Sun 21-Dec-14 10:58:35

I've bought these for DP. Not dvds but engine related nonetheless.

I do sympathise pacific I have 4 men like this to buy for. Former rally driver, steam engine lover FIL, a biker and 2 anything fast with wheels lovers in the making.

curiousgeorgie Sun 21-Dec-14 12:45:08

The documentary 'King Of Kong' is a man dvd and also, just plain brilliant!

CawCanny Mon 22-Dec-14 05:48:34

I came on to suggest that very one you've just bought Pacific
If he's a F1 fan he will love it. DH and I watched the whole thing with our mouths like this shock shock

PacificDogwood Mon 22-Dec-14 07:10:11

Oh good, I am glad to hear that, Caw! grin
Thanks for posting.
He'll love the crashes

I have an unwanted present of iceroad truckers boxset I can post to you if you want?

grin @ Frozen - great idea, but we've got it already and all my 5 4 boys love it although would die of mortification if they knew that I know that.

Caulk, you are v lovely but IceRoad Fuckers Truckers have been a feature in this house for too long, so no, really. But thank you for thinking of me thanks

CaulkheadUpNorth Mon 22-Dec-14 20:55:38

Can you think of anyone else who might like it? It's been in house for too long- was gifted to me years ago!
