Kent, to me, means lazy summer days with the hot sun beating down on the hazy hop fields, or glorious spring with cherry and apple blossom lining the roads and filling the orchards, or even bitter winter, with the snow drifts clogging the lanes and grey flint churches standing high above the gale like ships breasting a stormy sea.
You'll gather from the above that Kent was where my wife and I lived when we were first married and it is remembered through a romantic mist. Still, young love aside, it is a beautiful county and crammed with history.
Alas, in those far off days I didn't have a video camera and now it is a day's journey from where we live, so we don't have as many films about it as we would like or it deserves. Still, I hope you will be as fascinated by the subject of the first film as I was and am.
The next film remembers one of the quirkier monuments I encountered in Chatham - a Royal Naval officer remembered because he discovered a way across a land without any water!
Lots of people talk about D-Day and the Normandy Beaches, but what about D-Day and Deal beach?
And then there was the peaceful invasion when another Roman landed in Kent and brought far more lasting change in his wake.
