Great little film Mike. I like the streets with the stalls set out. Similar to what we've seen in drawings of the medieval BullRing. Think there's also the old St. Paul's in there too, but of course it was also destroyed. Wish students/historians would make more of these sorts of reconstructions. Young people in schools would, I'm sure, enjoy the history of their localities much more. And who knows, maybe it would also encourage more efforts to safeguard our historic buildings. Viv.
