I'm not exactly sure what year this was made. So, I'll put it in the 90's folder. Nice short 26 minute docu drama. The quality of caps isn't great, but here they are.

When caps don't come out too clear or oversaturated, Evil Maddy begins applying filters.

DE, thank you for capping this little documentary which was also on my to-do list. I hope you'll get around to aged Paul looking distressed.

The poem printed below echoes through this short film.

Vitai Lampada

There's a breathless hush in the Close tonight -
Ten to make and the match to win -
A bumping pitch and a blinding light,
An hour to play and the last man in.
And it's not for the sake of the ribboned coat,
Or the selfish hope of a season's fame,
But his Captain's hand on his shoulder smote -
'Play up! play up! and play the game!'

The sand of the Desert is sodden red -
Red with the wreck of a square that broke; -
The Gatling's jammed and the Colonel's dead,
And the regiment's blind with dust and smoke.
The river of death has brimmed his banks,
And England's far, and Honour a name,
But the voice of a schoolboy rallies the ranks:
'Play up! play up! and play the game!'

This is the world that year by year,
While in her place the school is set,
Every one of her sons must hear,
And none that hears it dare forget.
This they all with joyful mind
Bear through life like a torch in flame,
And falling fling to the host behind -
'Play up! play up! and play the game!'

Sir Henry Newbolt


Sir Henry Newbolt, a childhood friend of Douglas Haig (later to command World War I’s British Expeditionary Force), wrote the above poem, which became popular early in World War I. Its equation of warfare with cricket, of valor with sportsmanship, represented an ideal of rugged bravery and an expectation that wars could follow game rules that many British officers followed. These expectations proved completely inadequate to the realities of trench warfare. The poem’s title, which means “The Torch of Life,” is taken from the Latin poem De rerum natura (On the Nature of Things) by Lucretius, where it refers to a torch handed off in a relay race.

Vitai Lampada is one of the selections included on the War Poems anthology. Now I have an excuse to listen to it this week and see if it is read by Paul.

BTW, Paul has a lovely profile, doesn't he?

Yes, Paul has beautiful profile. Classic!

Roman Gods would smote the heavens for such a profile.

I love his nose. Is that all right to say? Embarassed

Thanks for adding in the poem and background, Estelle.

I didn't cap the distressed older Henry Newbolt picture. Crying or Very sad

A beautiful profile, indeed! An artist's dream!
Everytime I see that exquisite profile I'm
reminded of the following lines from the song
"Isn't It Romantic?":

"I know your profile and I know the way you kiss.
Just the thing I miss on a night like this."

I would also say that he has a very romantic profile!
Very Happy

Catherine

More discovered treasure!! Surprised

Maddy, where did you find this?? Shocked I'm going to venture a guess and say it's from the mid to late nineties, from the way he looks there. Not trying to be an expert--just felt like guessing.

Paul's profile is beautiful--there was a whole thread on it and his classic statuary worthy features a while back, in fact. His nose is very manly, yet refined--and yes, Maddy, it's alright to say! Laughing It's what we're here for! Smile

Thanks much for sniffing this one out and capping it for us! He's lovely in any era, isn't he? *sigh*

Oh yes, the classic statuary features.... Cool

Are you sure you didn't find it somewhere else? I don't think I have ever seen this. Question

Hey, Gaby, a while ago I sent DE copies of the DVDs I'd made from some videos including Breathless Hush, Who Killed Cabot, and a crocodile documentary narrated by Paul. I originally got the videotapes from former PMEBer Mia Huber. I can send these DVDs your way, too, if you like. Smile

Heehee, setting the record straight, for what it's worth.

Does anyone know if there is a list with the docudramas or other productions ( I mean other than films) Paul is in? As a narrator or otherwise? I am reading all these threads and I see all new titles, well, for me they are new. IMDB gives some names, but I don't think that list is complete.
I would like to have such a list, so I know what to look for when I study my weekly TV-guide Very Happy

I would love to see them. You are the greatest enabler, I am forever in your debt.
