James May attempts to rehabilitate one of Britain's most derided toys by seeing if it's possible for Action Man to do what no toy has ever managed - travel faster than the speed of sound. For decades Action Man, despite his name, has been a disappointment. He promised so much with his eagle eyes, his gripping hands and his natty outfits. But what has he ever achieved? Nothing… yet. After half a century lazing around the back of the toy cupboard, he must prove that he has the Right Stuff, redeem his shattered reputation and boldly go where no toy has gone before. The challenge is daunting. Breaking the sound barrier and returning Action Man safely to the earth will test James and the team to the limit. In an action-packed series of attempts, James battles high-speed physics, unforeseen explosions and catastrophic design setbacks that account for a large number of Action Man volunteers before settling on an experimental supersonic vehicle made entirely from scratch - a vehicle that threatens to send Action Man and the team into oblivion. In a gripping final act, Action Man must not only succeed and survive intact but also go faster and higher than a rival supersonic attempt led by his arch-nemesis: Sindy. Will Action Man redeem himself? Will he survive Mach 1? Or will he lose out?

After several albums as the featured singer in the Miami Sound Machine, Gloria Estefan finally stepped up to top billing on Let It Loose, and her coming-out party became a major success. The album features no fewer than four Top 10 singles, including the hot Latino club grooves of "Rhythm Is Gonna Get You" and "1-2-3," and the sweet, affecting ballads "Anything for You" and "Can't Stay Away from You." By the time of the album's release in 1987, Estefan had not yet grown into the assured and charismatic singer she would become. And some of the songs here bear the cheesy production techniques of their time. Overall, however, Let It Loose shows an artist beginning to assert herself with considerable charm and élan.

The British band the Immaculate Fools became so popular in Spain that they eventually moved there.

Although the group landed on the charts in Britain, their hybrid of Celtic music, folk, and alternative rock found even more success in Spain and Germany…

Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii was born blind in 1988, but began to show great musical talent in early childhood. This gift enabled him to transform his greatest handicap into a strength. The piano became a sonorous means to express his inner world. At the age of two, Nobuyuki played "Jingle Bells" on his toy piano as he heard his mother singing the melody in the next room. He went on to make his stage debut at ten, with the Osaka Century Symphony. Nobu, as his family and friends call him, has gathered his repertoire exclusively through hearing and playing what hears. In this way he has reached a level of musical virtuosity that has seen him perform in some of the most famous concert halls in the world.
