The Englishman's Home by Sir John Betjeman In this film. Sir John surveys house and garden through the centuries, from an unusual vantage point. His bird's-eye view is romantic, poetic and sometimes quite outspoken.
The idea of juxtaposing Betjeman ana a helicopter is bizarre, but it worked triumphantly. (OBSERVER) Producer EDWARD MIRZOEFF (R)

Five films in which
Chris Serle and Paul Heiney take it in turns to plunge in at the deep end.
Fastnet Race Skipper
The closest Chris Serle has come to sailing is drinking other people's gin and tonic on other people's boats.
Now he approaches the Royal Ocean Racing Club to find out if he can skipper a yacht in Britain's premier off-shore race.
In 1979, 15 yachtsmen lost their lives when a devastating storm struck the Fastnet fleet. Before he can even consider leading a crew on the 1985 race, Chris must learn to sail from scratch, absorb a thorough knowledge of navigation, meteorology, safety at sea - and how to motivate the crew to win. After a tough summer of intensive training from sailing instructor Roger Justice , and advice from some of the world's most successful skippers including Chay Blyth , Clare Francis and Harold Cudmore , Chris and his crew aboard True Brit cross the Fastnet start line.
