This first DVD includes a travellers meeting at Brockenhurst and the trade in piebald ponies which are individually recognizable with their unique markings which discourage theft.
These DVDs will appeal to people who believe we should keep some of the old crafts alive sharing information and techniques across generations and to anyone who likes all things natural and enjoys watching the series "Country Ways", for example.
There are 3 episodes on each DVD. This is Vol 1, and after you watch it, you'll have to get the others as well!
God bless Jack.
This one contains the following: Episode 1 Appleby Fair/Ramming Time. Jack visits the famous Gypsy Horse fair at Appleby and watches some shy young rams introduced to the ladies. Episode 2 New Forest Point-To-Point/Apple Grafting Episode. Jack watches a point-To-Point race in the New Forest and watches the intricate apple grafting process. 3 Kingfishers/Model Carts. Jack studies the beautiful Kingfisher and shows us some beautifully made models by an unknown craftsman. My own personal favourites are Ramming Time and Model Carts, but they are all a delight. How refreshing to be reminded of happer times when political correctness did not rule the world. Even better now than when they were first shown. Now is a good time to buy them. They have dropped in price considerably from when they were first released, and can be picked up for a bargain at the time of this review if you are prepared to buy used DVD's as I did.Read more ›
Nostalgia pure and simple! I heartily recommend collecting all nine programs.
