The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was the top selling UK independent film on video in 2012 and The Woman in Black also appeared in 2012’s top 10.

Table 11.4 shows the top 10 best selling feature documentaries on video in 2013. This list does not include documentaries which are based on music concerts. The top selling documentary on video in 2013 was The Class of ‘92, one of four sport documentaries in the list. In second place is Senna, another of the sport documentaries, which was the top selling documentary on video in both 2011 and 2012 and the all time highest grossing non-concert UK documentary at the UK box office. The other two sport documentaries are both about motor cycle racing. Fastest, in fourth place, is about the MotoGP World Championship, and TT3D: Closer to the Edge is a 3D film about the Isle of Man TT motorcycle races. (TT3D: Closer to the Edge was the second highest selling documentary on video in both 2011 and 2012.) Three films in the list were released theatrically in 2013 (as mentioned above, the release of The Class of ’92 was considered by Rentrak to be event cinema rather than a theatrical release). The other two 2013 releases are Blackfish and The Spirit of ’45. Seven of the top 10 documentaries were UK films.
