Following my first comment on this series, I would like to add that the narrative comment for each film is of great quality and interest to me. I like very much to hear about the history of the town and the history of the building of the cathedral, and what are the problems of restoration today. This refreshes or completes very well my own readings during my trip in England in 1978.
