This splendid video with its historical content, scenic interest and lively re-enactments directed and produced by Keith Sheather in 2004 is again available for sale thanks to Dennis Broe who recycled a number of DVD cases. As you will see from the original poster / flyer the concessionary sale price of £2.50 to members is good value for the timeless video with additional material.
