Just About Summaries It.....
6 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Interesting to see that no credits are given for any of the actors who worked on this.

I worked on it, though I'm not an actor. I was one of the extras.

This documentary series was financed by Michael Ashcroft as part of his mission to acquire every VC that comes on the market when a family has to raise money. (Yes, he's the Michael Ashcroft who finances the Conservative Party).

Took 6 months to get paid by this bunch.

Utterly disgraceful, I was totally impoverished at the time.

I needed that money just to eat.
