Inspired by the name and flair of the Parisian student quarter Quarter Latin, Mike Jones (lyrics), Steve Skaith (voice and guitar) and Richard Wright (guitar) founded the British band Latin Quarter in 1983 – a band that was like a melting pot of different cultures. The music styles were just as different as the subject matter of the songs; with their committed lyrics they vented their own anxieties over issues such as America during the McCarthy era, everyday racism or unemployment. Their songs captivate through a mixture of rock, reggae, dance and ballads.This DVD brings you Latin Quarter in 1986 at the height of their success from the Full House Rock Show, Hanover featuring their hit single Radio Africa.

The Duke of Montrose is a Scottish hill farmer and a politician, one of the few dukes who still sit in the House of Lords. The Duchess of Rutland made dozens of people redundant when she took over Belvoir Castle, but is determined to make it an efficient business. The Duke and Duchess of St Albans don't have a stately pile, but do have their coronets and coronation robes.
