Storyline

When the National Gallery in London is flooded the Director, Quentin Lester, decides to transfer the entire collection to the Welsh caves where the collection was stored during World War II. The entire operation is supposed to be secret and the cover story is that they are a mining company looking to reopen the mines, good news to the economically depressed town nearby. It takes local school teacher, Angharad Stanner, all of a day however to learn what is really going on. She soon has the entire school at the site taking a tour but Quentin's refusal to open any of the packing crates leads to something of a falling out. Gradually, Quentin gets to know the locals, particularly the Hughes family. In the end, everyone benefits and learns from each other. Written by garykmcd

A picture of the Valleys
26 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Trevor Eve plays an uptight National Gallery curator. A leak in the Gallery has led to flooding and the valuable paintings have been sent to a disused slate mine in North Wales. It was something envisaged by Churchill during the war.

The arrival of the art world in the sleepy village of Manod gets the villagers to develop an interest in the art, Trevor Eve develops an interest with the local schoolteacher (Eve Myles) and a struggling petrol station finds new opportunities to stay afloat.

The drama is an adaptation of the book from Frank Cottrell Boyce, however a charming story does not translate well on screen. The villagers have too much of the yokel in them and Trevor Eve looks frankly too old to be melting for the charms of the much younger looking Myles.
