Trial of DVDs and a CD

Written on Saturday 17th September 2011

Well I thought it was about time to try something new so have agreed to put a few DVDs and a CD on the site.  My thinking is that along with being excellent ideas for presents for Granny's and Grandpa's birthdays or Christmas they will be lightweight for posting (especially abroad).
Have a look and let me know what you think.

DVD. Lincolnshire: A century on Film by Alan Stennett.  Reel One ? A New Century  ?14.95
With film dating back as early as 1901.  Grimsby trawlermen bringing home their catch, hats and dresses to die for ? 1904 style, quarrymen working entirely by hand; industry that led the world with products designed and built in Lincolnshire, like the first caterpillar tracked vehicles.  There are Royal visits, Coronation and Empire Day celebrations; Great War recruitment and early aviation, Isaac Newton's bicentenary, early Lincolnshire Shows, all the fun of the fair and seaside holidays; a children's party in the 1920s and bathing the baby in a small tin tub.

DVD. Lincolnshire: A century on Film by Alan Stennett.  Reel Two - Fool's Paradise   ?14.95
Covers the decade leading up to the Second World War.  With the availability of smaller, easy to use cine cameras, many more people were now recording their lives on film.  Lincolnshire Life seems to have been largely unaffected by the political and economic problems of the 1930s.  Agriculture and the Grimsby fishing industry were clearly thriving.   Travel by steam train, motor bus, trolleybus, and a various river craft including the Humber Ferry, plus floods at Stamford and watch out for Billy Butlin, Gracie Fields, the Dagenham Girl Pipers and a nine year old Margaret Roberts (to become Margaret Thatcher)!

DVD.  Sylvia Pankhurst: Everything is possible.  ?20.00
Sylvia Pankhurst imprisoned more than any other suffragette.  Unlike her mother Emmeline and sister Christabel who dropped the fight for votes for women to support the war effort, Sylvia refused to sacrifice the fight for universal suffrage until it was won. 
The film includes exclusive testimony from Sylvia's son, Richard and his wife Rita as well as interviews with key writers, academics and thinkers.  It was filmed in the parliamentary archives, the Museum of London, the Women's Library, Bishopgate institute, throughout the East End and beyond to produce an in depth epic and do justice to an inimitable woman.

CD. Tennyson Poems in Lincolnshire Dialect read by Edward Campion and Edith Burgess   ?4.95         
Tennyson, born at Somersby, Lincolnshire, in 1809, was the first Poet Laureate to be recorded performing his own work.  With this in mind, the Society for Lincolnshire History and Archaeology is celebrating his bicentenary by re-issuing recordings of his Lincolnshire dialect poems and they include Northern Farmer, The Northern Cobbler, Owd Roa (Old Rover), The Spinster's Sweet-Arts.
