Sika deer in Ashridge


Original YT playout date: 10 February 2009
Duration: 39:12

“I can’t belive you you film this, let alone make other people watch it afterwards, REDICULOUS!” wrote one commentator.

So what better place for me to review H G Wells’ Short History of the World? Enjoy!”

Duration: 1:09:05
