The Night Ferry
The Night Ferry
by Michael Robotham
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars True story?, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Night Ferry (Paperback)
Very good book and just a couple of hitches in the plot development where illogicalities creep in, but it is the sort of setup that could be real life dramas!

goodish book, but the ending was not compelling, the best thing about this book is the atmospheric description - characters are better described in his other books, though

5.0 out of 5 stars The manor born, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an expatriate, I missed the original series, BBCITV not being available in Switzerland. The BBC Entertainment/Prime Channel filled a few gaps in the 1990s when we gained some foreign TV here. My wife and I have watched every episode and it has such quality that we have even watched some more than once - brilliant British humour at its best - the social jibes and irony are poignant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Herriot 2, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the great series. - I have every video and the most important books about Herriot and the way the films bring Yorkshire alive (and Scotland in the earlier episodes) is magical. Totally to be recommended, it does a great job for Yorkshire, underling the social life, the mores of the times and the way of life, which was often very hard. The rugged scenery and weather are often at the forefront of the story. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Herriot, 17 Nov. 2012

One of the all-time great TV series! Absolutely worth every penny and well worth watching in chronological order. A pity it is not HD quality, but the story and atmosphere of the North of England are unique. Buy it and show it to your grandchildren - which I will be doing a couple of years from now - although they speak German only at the moment they wilol still enjoy this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars The great train robber, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The DVD contains a few images which are interesting, however the main presenter seems to wilfully leave out importrant facts whcih he probably knows about and also a description of the totally shameful betrayal of Biggs. The fact that he and his newspaper were involved in this was is disgusting.
It is certainly not a DVD that I will watch again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gainsburg, 21 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Originals (Audio CD)
An excellent compilation - really brings back the 1960s. Further, it demonstrates the breadth of talent which Serge had - he was not simply a one-hit wonder but produced some great things. The quality is also excellent, something which can be an issue with re-issued recordings! Pity Elisa is not included, though!
