    Wow, this looks very promising. Seeing as we don´t get to go to Twickenham this year this film comes very handy!

    I usually have misgivings about these films or DVDs that don’t involve Apple (those ‘Music Review’ type things). But there have been some good ones. Granada’s ‘It Was Twenty Years Ago Today’ from 1987 is a great documentary and deserves a full DVD restoration and release. This India film also looks interesting. A shame that Cynthia and Maureen can’t be on it for obvious reasons. But interviews with Jane Asher and Mia and Prudence Farrow would have been a major coup.

    And at least Disney’s ‘permission’ isn’t needed to release this film.
