In John's usual gentle naive style, John and Ken look into the claim that people in the South are "softer" than those in the North.

The "plot" quickly devolves into the obligatory search for a disgruntled Ken and this offers John an opportunity to search the Channel Islands, providing the viewer with vicarious attendance to festivals and tourist spots and lovely sunny days.

For critics, this isn't 500 Bus Stops, there wasn't much of Ken and there were only a handful of Shuttleworth songs until the medley as the end-credits rolled (the latter shot underwater in Porpoise Song style psychedelia) but this is exactly the sort of film the fictional John might make: gentle, unhurried, unassuming and taking pleasure in life's simple things.

There are 8 deleted scenes on the DVD, a photo gallery of images from the film and a cartoon enhanced video of I Can't Go Back to Savoury Now. My DVD also came with a small poster similar to the picture on the cover.

At 76 minutes, the film is quite short so it might seem a bit pricey, but buying this will continue to support Graham Fellows in producing more of his wonderful brand of precious non-commercial whimsy.

If you're not into John, but you have fond memories of sunny family holidays, bunting strewn streets and ice-cream cones, you might also enjoy this as a little piece of nostalgia.

This is the best film I own. Shuttleworth lovers or non shuttleworth rookies. If you have a taste for spoof and something different this is it, good clean fun. In summary: Smartly put together in a shoddy disguise. 'Will they clap? oof! no they don't'

Firstly let me say I am a huge Shuttleworths fan and had high hopes for this DVD as the earlier DVD `its nice up North` was a bit dark and melancholy both in imagery and soundtrack. Sadly this is even darker and has the same format of including the production team as semi cast members and sidelining Ken which is a bit disappointing and you are left wondering what is the point of the DVD, It`s all too dark and gloomy and even has pretences of being `arty` and doesnt seem to know what it is as it isnt a comedy or spoof documentary either. I think Graham fellows ( John )is relying on the fact that john Shuttleworth has a huge and I mean huge cult following and like myself will buy anything he does. I wish this could have been a bit more fun along the lines of `500 bus stops` which was brilliant, fast moving and a lot more upbeat.
Dont get me wrong, I still enjoyed this it`s just it left me a bit depressed and I hope Johns next DVD is a bit more upbeat.
