Landmarks was a wonderful series, similar to Alistair Cooke's America series.

Something in the treatment of the film (or lack thereof) gives Landmark's images the poignancy that escapes most other landscape documentaries. Dense, rich and vital; much like the Landmark series itself.

Bit of a dude.

Why is that despite all the advances in technology, a mushrooming of media studies degrees and film schools, and boosts to funding of the so-called creative industries, we can't match today the quality of Landmarks and its ilk. It seems as time goes on, the worse NZ-made TV gets. Cumberland was the David Attenborough of Kiwi TV. Brilliant stuff. Can you buy the series on DVD? I might just do that.

I loved this series so much. I know Kenneth must be well into retirement, and deserved too, but I wish there were more.
