Don't be put off, it's a movie for fans and non-fans alike. You'll love it.
I'll post later for my verdict.

First I considered it may have been a reaction to my birthday on Tuesday, but it's no milestone event and when I think of my age I don't worry about it at all.
Work? No, that plods along just fine, my reviews are good and I my superiors consider me to be indispensable (I hope!).
Home? It's just the same old same old, but could THAT be the issue?
If I had the answers I could solve the problem but I don't. Maybe I'm just feeling sorry for myself and I just need to kick myself up the arse and get on with it.

I've always see myself as a student of history, soaking up as much as I can when I can, so to experience something like this was a chance to see for myself what my grandparents have told me about. The first half was a light am-dram style collection of dances and singing from local people most probably connected to the WI, the second part was a showcase of Judith Hibbert who's singing and light-hearted banter were a joy. Even Harlz loved the show!
Sometimes it's important to remember the past, especially something that is still in living memory of our grandparents, it's easy to dismiss as not relevant but I believe it is. How they lived and laughed, cried and sang is at least as important as the events (in fact probably more important).
If you ever find yourself in North Wales and are interested in the events of WWII then a visit to the Home Front Experience is a must.
By the way, I won the raffle as well - nice bottle of Champagne!
