An inspiration
9 April 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Amazing isn't it? How such a film could be so respected so long after two brief showings on UK TV? I agree with all comments above. Having seen it, it became the type of programme I would forever want to be associated with. A credit to all those involved and what TV should be about. Dare broadcasters ever give audiences quality productions like this again? I would watch this every week - it's inspirational; it's beautiful. I remember some of the shots even now, the cinematography was excellent and I remember being amazed at how such a simple subject, about something so everyday, drew me in completely. It's also sad that such places in many towns in the UK have lost their 'watering holes'. At least future generations will be able to see the simple pleasure afforded by such places through this wonderful film.
