Rust never sleeps and like old age is inevitable , but Hammerite paint holds back the process better than any other product that I am aware of ..


Brian Robinson : Pioneer
Brian Robinson : Pioneer
by Graeme Fife
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.05

5.0 out of 5 stars A real account without all the journalistic hyperbole about a very underated bike rider & man ., 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good account of a pioneer , many came after him but he did it in a time not long after the war when the English channel was as wide as an Ocean . Graham Fife captures the magnitude of this and also how Brian Robinson adapted to a very difficult job in what then was almost an alien world . An excellent book about cycling , history , but most of all about life . Paul Turnbull . Gourin France

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting search for the identity of perhaps Britains best ever cyclist ., 21 Feb. 2014

Even if the author never gets much nearer to finding the real Robert Millar ( perhaps impossible ! ), the search & effort are an excellent read .

4.0 out of 5 stars A nostalgic but true account of an epoch which gave birth to modern day cycle racing in the UK ., 10 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having read in Pursuit of Stardom Tony Hewson's previous book & enjoyed it i was equally happy with A Racing Cyclists Worst Nightmare. I related to his first book having raced in France , but over a decade later , however is was much the same story for myself . His latest book however is very informative on many things i was too young to take in at the time , especially the politics involved in cycling . I have a much clearer understanding of how the modern road racing , which i participated in in the UK came about . I have always had respect for the likes of Percy Stallard , Dave Orford, etc , but with this book i see things much clearer . All the other stories within the book are excellent stories in their own right . A Golden Age well yes & no , another time however when people had to make do with what they had . An enjoyable read , just one question Tony how come a ex racing cyclist can write intelligent stuff? Keep it up !

4.0 out of 5 stars The real cost of Global-Lies!, 28 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: This Is England [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This is England starts out portraying a depressed working-class ( or nowadays unemployed or unemployable)in a dreary urban background. This abandoned social group at first looks more to be pitied than being a threat to society, but the director shows little by little how even people with hardly any brain at all can be brainwashed by groups like the National Front. The film is set in the 1980s.It would however be to the advantage of society if today's politicians watched this film and saw that to have an underclass doing nothing, does not make sense in the long term, even if in the short term it makes huge profits for a few. This is England is not so much a political message as a common sense one. A good film well-made & not without some humour even if the subject matter and environment are somewhat depessing.Simone Turnbull ( France )

4.0 out of 5 stars Times change, but people do not in real terms ., 28 Dec. 2011
The only thing that has changed in society between Ken Loach making Kes & Sweet Sixteen is that society is still grossly unfair, but nowadays however the underdog also has a criminal mafia group of society to exploit them via the urban drugs that have been steadily introduced since the 1960s. Ken Loach's films are often criticised as 'déjà vu' but films like Sweet Sixteen still portray things people prefer to sweep under the carpet. Perhaps when folks trip over the lump in the carpet they may well see there is a real world & not just a virtual one out there. Sweet Sixteen is a good film with a relevant message , keep it up Ken the world still needs you!! Simone Turnbull ( France )


Radio On [VHS]
Radio On [VHS]
VHS

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit of history, 3 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Radio On [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I first saw Radio On in a art house cinema, not long after it was released . Its stark in outlook & captures the times, but is also timeless in so much that the under lying theme of searching for a reason for life is a quest that gives more questions than answers . Great camera work and music, a well put together film .
