My web site – John Barber – features many of my published articles, links to published books, my blogs on Hertford and The Best of British and more. I noticed that there are numerous references to film and books so the following pages serve to highlight these and offer a review. There are few if any recent films so it’s a good place for those who like a bit of nostalgia.
It all started with this feature published by the Hertfordshire Mercury on December 7 2007.
