Australia released, PAL/Region 0 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: A superbly cinematographed, if thinly scripted adventure, set in rural Otago during the 1930's. It centers on a young and determined Kate (Robson) who runs away from her aunt and uncle to find her father in Wellingon. By chance, she meets up with Patrick (Phelps), a World War I veteran, on the run after attacking a repossession man. They become reluctant traveling companions, each using the other as a cover to elude the law. Meant for a young audience, this "family film" makes for a enjoyable watch. "The Wizard" has a part as the Swaggie, early on in the film. Filmed mostly in central Otago locations, plus Oamaru and Christchurch. ...Starlight Hotel ( Star light Hotel )

Anyone who loves Dorset will relish this latest visit to one of Britain`s most spectacular counties. Beginning at Studland, where Discovering Dorset Volume 1 ended, we take the Chain Ferry across Poole Harbour, first visiting the millionaires` playground of Sandbanks, and the glorious gardens at Compton Acres. A stroll around Poole Quay reveals how the town developed, largely through its trade links with North America. In more recent times, it was a major embarkation point for the D-Day landings of the Normandy Invasion. You will also see how an ancient local industry still thrives in the modern form of Poole Pottery. After looking at some of Poole`s most notable buildings, as well as Holes Bay and the national headquarters of the RNLI, we take a majestic boat trip around the second largest natural harbour in the world, which includes a view of Brownsea Island, where Robert Baden-Powell set up the first Scout Camp in 1907. We were also fortunate to be able to set sail on the world`s last seagoing paddlesteamer, Waverley, which berthed at Poole for the first time since 1987. As we reached Bramksome Dene Chine, the presentation was handed over to distinguished Bournemouth historian and tour guide John Walker. John is proud of this beautiful resort, which celebrates its bicentennial in 2010, and explains the history of significant sites such as the Royal Exeter Hotel, once home of the town`s founder Captain Lewis Tregonwell. You will also see St Peter`s Church, where Frankenstein author Mary Shelley is buried, enjoy a tribute to the town`s floral splendour, and of course visit the Pier, the Pavilion and the Bournemouth International Centre, which has been so important to the local economy since it opened in 1984. There is also time to call at Boscombe, Southbourne and the ancient town of Christchurch, famous for its splendid 11th century Priory and its stunning quay, before we finish our tour at Highcliffe, on the very edge of Hampshire.

Staying at the recently refurbished Elms Hotel on Papanui Road (their claim that "Nothing is too much trouble" we certainly found to be true!) was a pleasure.

Advantages: Wonderful view from spire, interesting decor, great central location near other sites, free Disadvantages: Quite busy
...Christchurch is my favourite city in New Zealand. It is modern and happening, whilst still retaining a very refined and serene atmosphere, with its willow-banked river creeping through the city centre, benches in small gardens for people to pass time on, and lovely old buildings.
The centrepiece of Christchurch would have to be its gothic-style cathedral. It is located in the attractively...
Advantages: Brilliant views. Disadvantages: Make sure weather is nice before you go. Expensive.
