Product description

Weston-Super-Mare

"Gem of the Somerset Coast" - John Betjeman visits Weston and samples the delights of the boarding houses, beaches, lights and architecture.

Bath
"Rome built in Somerset" - A fierce defence of the town against the ravages of speculators when Bath was threatened with wholesale redevelopment.

Malmesbury
"A city set on a hill which cannot be hid" - Where John Betjeman found the perfect combination of both countryside and county towns that he loved.

Marlborough
Perhaps the finest of John Betjeman's filmworks and represents the poet at his descriptive best.

Bristol my Home
The full-length version of John Betjeman's tribute to his friend, the Music Hall star, Randolph Sutton.

Clevedon
Betjeman was a poet of the people as well as places. This film was set in a winter cliff top hotel where retired gentlefolk came to spend the sunset of their days. This also includes documentation on the saving of Clevedon Pier.

An HTV production.
