DVDs

All the DVDs are produced in the PAL format. CLICK HERE to see whether your country uses PAL.

If your country uses a different format, DVDs can be viewed on a multi region DVD player, a portable DVD player or a laptop (with a DVD drive) which can then be linked to a TV screen via a cable.

All the DVDs produced by Fran West come in a floppy plastic sleeve so there are minimal postage costs.

Australia's Coast from the Air

dvd_australia_coast_from_air.jpg
 

A movie presentation of over 260 photos (with captions) highlighting aerial views of Australia's stunning and varied coast as photographed by pilot Fran West during her circumnavigation of Australia and other flights. These aren't the usual tourist photos, although there are some familiar places. The images capture more of the essence of Australia from beautiful sandy beaches and rugged shorelines to remote stretches of untamed coast and hidden treasures.

Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania are all represented with at least 26 or more images and the photos follow Fran's anticlockwise path around the Australian mainland and Tasmania.

There's also an added bonus of images of inland detours, ground shots and airstrips on which Fran landed.

This is recommended viewing for geography students, pilots interested in flying Australia's coast (an Outback safari Down Under) and those who just want to experience Australia's spectacular scenery from above.

Duration: approximately 26 minutes (with an easy listening soundtrack).

Leisure and Lifestyle DVDs

Fran West is now producing a series of DVDs designed specifically at the request of, and for use by, diversional therapists (also recreation/occupational therapists and leisure/lifestyle/activities coordinators) to connect people with past lifestyles, bring back memories and provide hours of enjoyment.

Suitable for playing on a laptop, personal computer, large screen, TV or DVD player, viewing can be for one or more people at a time.

All the DVDs have over 260 images (without captions), an easy listening soundtrack, last approximately 26 minutes and are $25.00 each.

Originally produced for dementia patients, the DVDs are also enjoyed by aged care residents and staff, used in activities, and are found to be very beneficial for high care, palliative care and Sundowner’s Syndrome patients. Additionally, the benefits have flowed over into other areas as well reducing stress, calming, modifying behaviour, providing a new focus and managing pain.

Some of the DVDs are also used in day care centres, kindergartens and primary schools to educate and entertain children.
