Made in the1950s this a professional film which, unusual for its time, is in full colour. It recalls an era when Norwich's brewing and shoe-making industries were at their height.

Saxon origins, Norman development, medieval expansion, rebellions and the building of the modern city - its all here. Paul Barnes narrates, local historians detail events. Most surprising of all his how much Norwich has changed since this film was made in 1995.

Ireland, Land of Majesty
A two-DVD set with a running time of 208 minutes. W B Yeats wrote of "a terrible beauty" and that just about sums up this inspiring and heart-rending feature-length movie. It tells the complete story of Ireland's tortured history. Set in the most beautiful of landscapes are the most horrific tales of how a nation fought for its freedom.

Three Faces of Scotland
A two-DVD set spanning 3 hours. Like Ireland, Scotland's history is bound up with the nature of its landscape, the struggles of its people and its relationship with England. An awesome blend of battles royal, majestic scenery and huge personalities, this is the ironic story a great nation's drive for freedom against the enemy to whose cause it gave the most.


Squit & Polish
A 75-minute romp through the world of English rural humour. Keith Skipper leads the way, his shrewd observations linking performances by many of the finest comedians and comedy musicians to emerge from East Anglia. The closing song, "Norfolk 'un Good" when spoken quickly in the local accent says it all about the self-effacing humour in these parts.

Loads of Squit
Keith Loads is East Anglia's answer to Jethro. A professional comic, this DVD captures him live on stage. It also includes specially filmed comedy sketches, written and performed by the master of mirth himself. The DVD runs for 65-minutes, each one of which is guaranteed to split your sides.

Loads More Squit
So successful was the first Keith Loads DVD described above, that the call for a follow-up just had to be answered. This is it. The same formula applies, but all the jokes are fresh and new.
