My wife and I watched most of Jack Hargreaves' TV programmes ('Out of Town' for example) when he was alive. My brother and he were friends and sometimes went fishing together but I never met him. Jack's programmes are always gentle; nostalgic of a way of rural life so missing in the fast, impatient, aggressive and frantic pace of life today. In his own easy, relaxed style, Jack describes country crafts and pursuits, animal husbandry, fly and coarse fishing, gypsy fairs, hobbies, nature and a way of life with a depth of knowledge and rich personal experiences which keep the viewer entranced all the way through.
Each time I tried to buy this complete boxed set of DVDs, I was thwarted by companies which advertised it at prices varying between around £40 to more than £100 but which failed to deliver it when ordered. On one occasion I paid but received nothing. Then someone told me it was available from Amazon for around £40 and so it was. My wife and I are rationing ourselves and watch just one programme a week as a real treat which we anticipate as soon as the latest one has been watched.
Thank you, Amazon, for a superb collection, swiftly delivered and obtained at a very good price. I'd have happily paid twice as much to have these programmes and if you obtain additional ones in the future, please contact me first.
