Rule Britannia!
11 May 2012 | by Bronco46See all my reviews

I saw a previous reviewer call this a "boring short"; and even unfavorably compared it the American made Travel Talks series. I could not possibly disagree more with that view point. To my thinking this is actually much better then the coverage given England by the Travel Talks series. While that reviewer for found the commentary boring; I found it be much more informative that the Travel Talks offering. Probably because this was done by Brit's they hit area's and jobs in England that the American series didn't cover at all. Perhaps the narrators accent bothered that reviewer. I saw parts of England I had never seen before; and saw people doing jobs never usually covered in the typical travelogue. It was a lot of fun to see how people were living in the agricultural area's of England so soon after the war. Actually we can't be sure the war is over; since no dates are given; but nothing shown seems to show a country on a war footing. Considering when this was shot; it is amazing to see how well the British came through that horrible war, that so punished this island. All and all a nice change from the usual British travel film.
