Betjeman's West Country - S01E02 (30th July 2006) [Tv-rip (VOB)]
John Nettles presents a journey through the life and times of John Betjeman, the much loved Peoples' Poet, to mark the centenary of his birth. Starting out from Waterloo, this first episode clatters through the West Country to Cornwall, to Trebetherick and the sounding sea' which was to become so important to Betjeman throughout his life. The poet's own films of Swindon, Northlew and Marlborough contribute to a glimpse of this eccentric Englishman.
Programme 2 - Sunday July 30 2006 - 'Seaside Dreams'
In 1964 John Betjeman visited Weston-super-Mare to take a look at the English
working class on holiday. In Seaside Dreams, 42 years later, presenter John
Nettles drops in on the same resort to see if things have changed much, and
comes up with some fascinating comparisons.
Meanwhile in Cornwall John takes tea with a circle of friends who all have
childhood memories of the great man, and explores the origins of Betjeman’s love
