and gardens, as the title suggests! There is aerial photography, coastal scenes, landscapes, rural scenes, cathedrals and castles, and of course Treasure Houses and Gardens!
There is no vocal commentary, but there is very pleasant light classical music in the background
throughout the entire length of the DVD.
An ideal DVD for home viewing, but it would also be an excellent DVD to play in a retail shop or
waiting room etc etc!
My only bug is that the viewer is not told WHAT they are actually viewing! A written running
commentary at the bottom of the screen, detailing exactly WHAT the viewer is viewing, would
make the DVD much more valuable, especially for potential tourists etc!
