Description:

Metroland John Betjeman - BBC

DVD, PAL, Region 2, Run Time: 1 Hour 4 Mins, Subtitles: English SDH

METRO-LAND (Rare DVD) is a colourful eulogy by Sir John Betjeman to the people and places served by London's Metropolitan Line.

"..One of the most delightful programmes I have ever seen.." - Chris Dunkley, THE FINANCIAL TIMES

Sir John Betjeman takes you on a journey into Metro-Land in his own eccentric and much loved style. Betjeman explores and contrasts the earlier and later ways of life while following the Neasden Nature Trail, calling in to the Pinner Village Hall and enjoying a round of golf on the great Moor Park course near rickmansworth.

Join Sir John with this quintessential guide on an unmissable journey along the Metropolitan Line from Baker Street to Quainton Road (now forgotten) - a must.
