Bulleid of the Southern
Bulleid of the Southern
by H.A.V. Bulleid
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A southern connection!, 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and detailed biography of his famous father, by Bullied's son. Turns out I went to the same primary school (in NZ), as the father, albeit 60+ years later. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old, old, friend., 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am an unashamed train sim fan since before year One - 2001. This iconic train simulator has been around the block and has had a continued loyal user base since it was released. Microsoft abandoned it after a couple of minor update patches, the last in 2002. Two later versions were canned by MS, who was at that time turning up its nose at PC 'game' software in favour of the awful proprietory XBox. MSTS is dated and can be flakey, yet despite the shortcomings, it's well into its second decade - no doubt confounding its original developers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old friend, 30 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of all the TV series I have EVER watched, the well loved Time Team stands tall above all others. This book answered all questions, except one. The book gave a lucid explanation of the behind-the-scenes activities and a potted history of the major players involved. What was the one question? Who cleaned up the mess left after the three day dig? I will be buying other books about this iconic series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old fashioned quality., 18 Sep 2013

This review is from: All Gas and Gaiters [DVD] (DVD)
If you were around at the time of the original screenings of AGG, this dvd will prompt affectionate memories of a classic series. Recently, I heard some of the radio episodes and I could visualise the various characters in my mind as if it was yesterday. This dvd is pure nostalgia from the years of quality TV humour.

Dvd ~ James Bolam
Price: £5.10

4.0 out of 5 stars Comic to comedy, hmmmm., 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Andy Capp is a comic tour de force and translating such a class to a TV series wasn't going to be easy. Essentially, the comic character is all in the reader's mind - James Bolam may well be the only actor to could bring it off and by and large he did. If you are an Andy Capp fan you'll either love it, or hate it. My own opinion lies in the middle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dear old Arthur Lowe again, 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this series because I'm a 'fan' of Arthur Lowe's work. It was quaint period piece from towards the end of Arthur's long career. I felt the writing wasn't up to scratch and he didn't have a good support cast - certainly no where as good as Dad's Army. He seemed quite tired and his comic timing was very muddled, IMO. Still, I have no regrets buying this bit of TV comedy history.

Great service from Amazon as always.

This review is from: Room At The Top [DVD] (DVD)
Gift for a friend who likes moves of this era. Not quite my taste, but he was very chuffed with it and he's difficult to please. Although a used copy, the dvd and service from the supplier were excellent and delivery was very prompt.
