Video editing and dvd authoring

Hi
I used to do a fair bit of video editing and used to use Adobe Premier.  I've not done any for a while, and can no longer find my copy of Premier (which is probably a fair way out of date anyway!).  I'd like to do a bit more now.  Does anyone have any suggestions for video editing software.  Premier is pretty expensive so am wondering what else is around as that can do far more than I am likely to want to do!
Also I used to create and write the DVD's and menus with Adobe Encore, so will need a replacement for that as well if anyone can suggest one.
Many thanks
Phil

I use Vegas Pro but the cut down version Vegas Movie Studio is well worth a look at under £50 or the slightly more expensive Platinum version.
They both include DVD Authoring and allow upto 4 video & audio tracks
Premiere Elements is around £60 but I've never used it so can't comment.
Edit: VMS Platinum inculdes HD & 5.1 editing/authoring

Cheers Mav, I'll check them out.  I'd also forgotten about the Elements versions.  I'll check out what they've cut out for that.

'Womble MPEG Video Wizard DVD' is worth considering for video editing and DVD authoring.
