Did You Know?


When John Fitzgerald (Tom Lester) is describing to Cardew Robinson (Reggie Ramsbottom) the construction of the new Dover Port Terminal, the amount of mashed potato he uses is more than the amount originally served (notwithstanding he had already taken a portion for his own plate) and he seems to have acquired extra sausages from somewhere to represent the towers.

Remembering when crossing the channel was an adventure
12 July 2015 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is a 40 minute short where 2 men pursue 2 neighbours in a bid to meet them and share their holiday in France.It has some silly voices by Spike Milligan which are more irritating than funny.This film is more of nostalgic interest in what it was like in those pre sat nav and motorway days to go down to Dover.The AA map is shown it was a direction booklet which took you step by step through the route in the same way as a sat nav.The A2 then was just a single lane each way road passing through some rather attractive Kentish scenery.There were restaurants and café s that you could stop in for a time.The process of boarding a ferry seems to be a fairly relaxed affair.Nice spacious café and shops area,with hardly any people and a petrol station which looks like something out of the thirties it is so streamlined.Contrast this with today!So for that reason if nothing else I found this film of interest.
