Hi James

I have managed to sort the problem i had now...thanks.

For anyone else wondering... Third line down,

"title" = "The Empire Strikes Back',

Should be:

"title" => "The Empire Strikes Back',

As the '=>' assigns the key, in this case 'title' to the value(The Empire Strikes Back).

EDIT:

You'd also need to include it inside the array().
