Betjeman's Britain - Anglia TV
4 November 2008 | by cgkstevensonSee all my reviews

Anglia TV's Betjeman's Britain is a 24 minute film with foreword and wrap-up by JB. To the music of Jim Parker are set several poems, notably 'Indoor Games Near Newbury' with Eric Morecambe , and 'Lenten Thoughts' with Susannah Yorke. Peter Cooke also appears in 'Seaside Golf'.

The theme of the programme covers the four seasons.

'Indoor Games' is also featured on a DVD released as 'Summoned by Bells'

I would also dearly like to find "Late Flowering Love" , I can't think of better casting then Beryl Reid in 'Invasion exercise on a Poultry Farm'
