Absolute rip-off product packaging of some excellent shows.
on 4 October 2009
The shows, and Jack Hargreaves, of course transcend criticism. Jack's lovely style and his treatments and knowledge of rural matters and the history of the countryside was unique and can never be equalled or bettered
The films included here are excellent, and look just as good as they day they were first aired. So, full marks for the content and the technical quality of the material here.
So why only three stars? Well, it's the packaging: For a DVD of this price to include only three 24 minute shows is just a disgraceful rip-off. To charge over £12 for 72 minutes of old TV material - however excellent - is just not on. I'm afraid the same applies to almost all of this series of DVDs.
Thus, the three stars for cynical rip-off packaging of these excellent shows which, of themselves, deserve ten stars.
