Storyline

This travelogue of England starts in Liverpool, where the port function is one of the city's most important economic aspects. Its origins was as a fishing village. The port function took hold with the slave trade and associated product trade with Africa in the 1700's, and privateering in the 1800s. Although the city was bombed during WWII, the port area was virtually undamaged. The next stop is the old Roman town of Chester, which still has many of the same characteristics when chariots traveled on streets over 2,000 years earlier. One of those artifacts is the underground arcade which allows travel between store to store without having to go outside. The next stop is Coventry, probably the hardest hit city in all the country during WWII, and the country's center of the motor car and bicycling industries. One of the most famous stories associated with the city is that of Lady Godiva. Monuments in the outskirts of Coventry and in Banbury are famous not for their design, but their ... Written by Huggo

From Liverpool to Stratford (1949)

*** (out of 4)

This here is one of the more entertaining entries in James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series. This one here takes us throughout England after WWII and we get to see some of the damage done to cities like Coventry. We're told that over 50% of the buildings were completely destroyed and we get to see a few of the factories that were bombed during the war. We also visit Chester's Main Street, Warwick Castle and we even get to see Shakespeare's hometown including a place where he first worked as well as hear about his first marriage. Even if you're not a fan of the series I think you'll still enjoy this one because it's rather interesting seeing these cities years after the war and how damaged they still were. As usual, FitzPatrick's narration is top-notch and the Technicolor really brings the footage to life. The one rather strange part has FitzPatrick talking about how bad the war was and then he goes on to mention that he fears the next war, with its new technologies, would be the end of mankind.
