5.0 out of 5 stars Interesing insight into Herriot's World,,,, 8 Feb 2011
This is a really nice DVD for fans of James Herriot's books or the TV series.

Well narrated, it provides some interesting insights into the places in Yorkshire featured in his books - and more so in the series!

Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant!, 20 Aug 2010
A wonderful DVD about a working sheep farm and its dogs over a period of a few years.

Recommended absolutely - I was fascinated watching the dogs working in a "real" environment!

4.0 out of 5 stars History of small holdings....., 20 Aug 2010
My only gripe would be that this is NOT about farming per se - rather about people trying to make a living out of small holdings.

But worth watching all the same - good fun and you will probably tear your hair out at the ineptitude thats shown!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought......, 20 Aug 2010
Looked interesting, which is why I bought it in the first place1

Turned out to be slightly odd in flavour, as part of the book is devoted to authors obsession with boys........

Promising, but dissappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tells it how it is........, 20 Aug 2010
Just so.

This tells it how it is - I know, as I have (unfortunately) been there, seen it, done it.

A must for the apologists to view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be in every train lovers library!, 13 Nov 2009
Really, an excellent book!

The variety of material, as well as its depth and the insightfull nature of the quotations, make this a book well worth having.

Add to this fact that quotations are from both sides of the Atlantic (and other places as well) and that the author is truely literate, and you have a cracker of book ideal for dippng into!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to the London Underground, 27 Oct 2009
This book is a really nice introduction to the London Underground.

Well laid out and easy to read, it is packed full of very nice illustrations.

I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the Underground and wants to read more about it - without having going into great detail!

5.0 out of 5 stars Drama off the Goerge Bank!, 4 Sep 2009
Similar to the Deadliest Catch Crab Series in feel and concept, Lobster Wars covers lobster fishing off Georges Bank in the Atlantic.

The lobsters are huge (when they catch them), but the boats are somewhat small compared to the crab boats.

Although the methodology is similar to the crab boats, there are many differences that the viewer will notice - the seas are less demanding, the conditions different, the people very different in their aopproach - and the series as a result has a different flavour.

If you liked the "Crab" series, then you will enjoy this one as well, so go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic - and great value for money!, 2 Sep 2009
One of the best comedy box sets around and great value for money - you get over 68 hours of viewing!

The versatility of Laurel and Hardy also means you get a variety of comedy to watch too - from bitter sweet to slapstick.

Do not hestitate - buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Had my wife locked to the TV......!, 2 Sep 2009
I bought this as a present for my wife....and she thoroughly enjoyed it, every episode!

Although it takes a few liberties with the actual historical events, the series is entertaining and "lushly" filmed.

It reminds one of a strong movie recreation of a classical ladies historical novel - and on this basis alone I would strongly recommend it to everyone who enjoys this type of book!
