AWESOME! GET IT!!!,
This review is from: From the Sea to the Land Beyond [DVD] (DVD)
Just watching this on telly now - and it is captivating. Amazing footage from the 1900's onwards with a fab sound track. Can;t wait till this is released!! Will definitely be buying this when it comes out. SO great to see all of our heritage captured like this - all original footage carefully put together over the years, from kids playing on the beech in their hand knitted swim wear, to footage of women building planes in factory during the war.
GET IT NOW!!!!!!!
