There is a comforting sense of isolation here, a total delight to be immersed in. He had, he said, a 'terrible and inexcusable vice of not reading a proof until after I have published it'. Interiors were shot at Bray Studios in Berkshire. There's an unpleasant whiff of mortality in the idea of books that seemed important only a few years ago fading from view. For this was the sort of man I was. This kind of support can certainly make us additional Usa!

When Moon uncovers the lost grave, they also realize that the damned man in the painting is none other than the excommunicated ancestor of Miss Hebron. But Birkin refuses the offer. Birkin notices, as he walks back down the road, how he first smelled, then saw, the swathes of hay lying in the dusk. When Watkins, also a teacher, wanted to find to a suitable film to accompany the launch of his poetry book at the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford, A Month in the Country seemed the obvious choice and an opportunity to honour the man who had inspired him to keep writing. It's full of emotive, nostalgic intangibles that the Germans probably have an admirable long word for, I can't define and it would take a hell of a film to recreate.

Birkin is working at the top of his ladder, Moon has dug himself a hole to live in beneath his bell-tent. It's easy enough to catalogue A month in the country book Month In the Country's merits and I will shortly but there's an extra elusive something that I can only suggest you read the book to understand. Captivated, Watkins bought as many as he could and tried to encourage a bookshop in Bradford, where he lives, to stock them. Birkin's feelings for Alice are what might be expected, and there is a moment when he is very close to asking her Housman's question: 'What have you in your heart'. There's an excellent performance from a very young looking Kenneth Branagh, a useful bit of stammering from an equally fresh-faced Colin Firth and some pleasant shots of pastoral scenery and old trains gushing steam. Undeterred, Watkins contacted the agents of the cast and director, and eventually the online fan clubs "Friends of Firth" and "Ken Friends".

Oxgodby, Kathy Ellerbeck, Alice Keach, Moon, that season of calm weather — gone as though they'd never been. He settled not in his native Yorkshire but in Northamptonshire, where he had been a head teacher. There is a comforting sense of isolation A month in the country book, a total delight to be immersed in.

The strings attached to this legacy are that a medieval wall painting in the church which has been whitewashed over is uncovered and that the grave of Piers Hebron be discovered if possible.

Moon talks posh. But the moment when the year crosses into another season becomes indistinguishable from his passion, making itself clear as it does quite suddenly, for Alice Keach.
