I bet it's a great story...too bad they don't tell it.
I had never heard of Jesse Martin, so when I saw the cover I was looking forward to hearing of an incredible feat. Unfortunately, about 15 minutes in I realized all I was going to get was a lot of people talking about how great it was that he did whatever he did, some shots of a rock concert (still don't know what that had to do with it), and home video from the boat, which might have been interesting if it had been accompanied by some sort of narration (and if it were about something better than how he washed his hair). I think I'll look up the story on the internet, because there is no way I can stay awake for the whole video.
The British Empire in Colour (2002)
Old footage of a different time and way of life
Britain's gradual retreat from empire to commonwealth is shown in these three episodes through film and documents from the people who lived through the chaos that came after the world wars. A lot of work was put into finding the material here, and it is incredible get to see the world as it was then. Writings from tribal people as well as English Lords and Ladies, and the working class at home are presented. The first episode's description of the massacres after the division of India and Pakistan were incredibly disturbing, and I would not recommend any of these episodes for younger children. The films were very graphic in their depictions of the bodies of victims, fighting, etc. In spite of the all too frequent horrors, I did enjoy watching the shows, and I believe the history presented here is incredibly important to our understanding of the world today, and to our decisions for the future.
