5.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back., 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this when it originally came out. I took the trouble to book a seat in the small municipal run cinema in Croydon uk. Just like some of the other reviewers, it turned out to be my own personal viewing. What an absolutely exhilarating film, I could have jumped up and down - no one would have seen me. Have just found it here on Amazon and immediately ordered a copy. Looking to relive a wonderful afternoon of long ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully made film, 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Special Friendship (DVD-R)
A beautifully made film. The quiet, unsensational progress of the story makes the denouement more shocking. The acting all round is excellent and effective. Didier Haudepin, at 12 years old, turns in a masterly performance. The most tragic part is seeing his face as his whole world suddenly fall apart. Do not miss this film - but be prepared to shed tears over it.

Incredibly inexpensive so able to carry it around without worry of losing or breaking. So useful, I have ordered 2 more as spares. Very quick service.

Excellent and speedy service. The whole collection is from what I consider Sinatra's finest period. Greatly enjoyed all these discs.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Howler, 12 May 2014
Like Russell, I had an awful time with this 'instrument'. An instrument of torture more like. Seeing how many reviewers have had good ones, I wonder how such a simple whistle can have such variable manufacture standards. I later bought Clarke Sweetones in D and C. Perfect sound and easy as can be. I don't say avoid Generation whistles, but be ready for possible problems - it may not be you !

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete in all ways, 29 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful collection and superbly performed by Martin Jones. Granados is unjustly overlooked, but this set of the complete solo piano works is a heroic standard bearer to lead a comeback in deserved popularity. How could not the Allegro de Concierto thrill and charm its way onto any virtuoso programme. Treat yourself with this and the wonderful CD of the piano roll recordings by Granados himself on Dal Segno. Granados was well known for augmenting performances of his own works, so you will have the written form by Jones and free performances by the Composer. His death, tragic, brave and romantic is reflected in his music.


Forewarned is Forearmed: Official Tribute and History of the Royal Observer Corps
Forewarned is Forearmed: Official Tribute and History of the Royal Observer Corps

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, 22 Oct. 2012
I bought this book years ago when it first came out. Bulked out by tributes from the great and good, this is really a rather feeble effort. If you are inrerested in the Royal Observer Corps history then strongly consider 'Attack Warning Red' by Derek Wood, though make sure you get the 2nd edition which goes up to 1991 and includes corrections to the 1975 edition. The original 'Forewarned is Forearmed' by Winslow is an excellent book, but only goes up to 1948 - well worth reading though.
