Disappointing.

This is quite a well-written expose of what has been done, and gone wrong with, Higher Education in Britain since the 1990s.

This is a brilliant dissection of what has gone wrong with the British Higher Education system, and it is so well, and humourously written. I go through it in a few days; and thought it well worth the effort and the price.

This review is from: Amadeus [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
The greatness and the glory of a genius is put over well, also the envy of an admirer who lived in his shadow and could not overcome his defiencies. Mozart did not know how to humour ordinary people; an important thing for a genius to be able to do.

This review is from: Pierrepoint [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
I enjoyed this very much. It was every day but at the same time, given the subject, macarbre. So many famous people met, and despatched, by a quite ordinary man who took a great pride in his job, and did it well. Nothing can match the suspense of waiting for that 9. o'clock drop.

A great and atmospheric epic well worth watching again after many years, even decades.

4.0 out of 5 stars Legal Drama and the Bentley Case, 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let Him Have It [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
A well-acted and directed play about life in the 1950s: realistic, tension-filled, atmospheric and with a clear message that the jury in Bentley's case got is so badly wrong. The trial judge, the Lord Chief Justice at the time, should have directed the jury to acquit. But since the death penalty for murder was ended in 1965 things have gotten a lot worse.

This takes you from the usurpation of Henry Bolingbrooke in 1399, who as Henry IV of Lancaster replaced the faltering Richard II Plantagenet. But Henry IV's son, Henry V of Agincourt did not reign long and, instead bequeathed his realms of England and France to a baby son, Henry VI. But when Henry VI came of age, he proved as inept as Richard II. A struggle for power then began leading to the Wars of York and Lancaster in which, in the end, York won, and Edward IV came to the throne in 1461. His death should have made no difference to the Yorkist victory but for the murder of Edward V by his uncle, the Duke of Gloucester, who then became Richard III. This, once again, split the Yorkist side and many defected to a sprig of Lancaster, the insignificant Henry Tudor. In 1485 he defeated King Richard and became Henry VII. It is a complex history and this excellent video will help you to cut a path through it before you try to do so by reading any book.

This review is from: Kidnapped [DVD] (DVD)
Fantastic and well acted adventure from an era fore-dating 'political correctness' and gender twisting roles; good entertainment as well.
