In the Press

"These mini-programmes are tiny, flawless gems. Windfall Films have been producing consistently fine programmes since the late Eighties…."
Victor Lewis-Smith, Evening Standard

"It's beautifully shot with great framing and pacing. If the Coen brothers made a documentary it would look like this."
Morgan Spurlock, Director of "Super Size Me"
