Tolpuddle Martyrs.

I have just finished watching a film, which was made in 1986, called 'Comrades', and is based on the Tolpuddle Martyrs. Even though I had recorded it, I could not stop watching it. It was one of the best films I have seen in ages. I don't know how I could have missed it 20 odd years ago.
If you come across it and you have time, watch it. England at it's worst. Corrupt Landowners, Magistrates, Politicians, Church Ministers etc.
I know it's a dramatisation based on fact, but it hits home.

For those who know nothing about the subject, read this.
