My significant other bought me a pair of these shoes years ago (3? maybe 4) and they're almost worn out now - not surprising considering that I wore them more or less every day.

If you've got a spare tenner, then this anthology of the eleven previously unreleased films that Alan Bennett wrote for the BBC is a joy. Each production begins with a brief introduction by Bennett, explaining a bit about the background of the work. All of these productions are excellent and some of them are absolute gems.
