Despite the loss of the Americal colonies and the king’s personal difficulties culminating in madness, the reign of George III is notable for the scale and variety of developments which characterised it. ‘Farmer George’ witnessed great changes in agriculture and a country being transformed by mail coaches, roads, canals and an accelerating industrial revolution. A protracted war with France witnessed the country’s most outstanding period of naval history and the decisive defeat of France at Waterloo. The art of Gainsborough, Wright of Derby and others crown a remarkable period in English history.

As a film-maker, I travel the world but few places offer such repose, intellectual stimulation and comfort. I can't wait to come back. My hat is most certainly off to all the hard-working team at Dillington. Their commitment to high quality service and programme innovation is truly remarkable. I thoroughly recommend it! Phil Grabsky
