"It's a great video, it'll do more for the cause than a great amount of what's been happening over the past few years, many thanks!"

"A charming film and compelling viewing for any organisation that is involved in the go-ahead for the Portishead Railway. I am amazed at the adult manner in which it was presented. Well done James.""
