News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

St George (The Advert - 1996)

This 90 second advert was filmed partly in Kent (at St. Margarets at Cliffe) and was for Blackcurrant Tango. It won several awards and was voted one of the top 100 adverts ever made. The advert only aired ten times on prime-time national TV. It was criticized (and I've heard, banned) because of fears that it would stoke up hatred of foreigners.

Have a look at it and comment....
