Product Description

Sir John Betjeman takes an unashamedly nostalgic journey through his earliest memories in this BBC documentary based on his autobiography. Sunny memories of family holidays in Cornwall contrast with the 'shivering doom' of Marlborough College and his ultimately frustrating studies at Oxford.

-----------
`Indoor games Near Newbury', from Betjeman's Britain (1980), featuring Eric Morecambe
-----------
John Betjeman tells the story of his childhood - `Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark of reason grows.'
John Betjeman takes an unashamedly nostalgic journey through his earliest memories, in a classic BBC documentary based on his autobiography.
This is the story of a solitary schoolboy who cared more for architecture than games; who devoted to a teddy bear called Archibald and entranced by steam trains and cinema. Sunny memories of family holidays in Cornwall contrast with the `shivering doom' of Marlborough College and his ultimately frustrating studies at Oxford. Betjeman may have famously `failed in Divinity', but his formative experiences helped make him the nation's best-loved poet.
Join John Betjeman as he explores the world, which first inspired him to
translate his passions into verse.

Very enjoyable although I was expecting a few more scenes with steam locomotives and railway travel. May have to make another purchase.
