I'd forgotten about this.  Their website has nothing (though it is a bit strange, under Music they list Danger Man).

A pity.  It is not a major work but it has charm.  It would be great as an extra with the original Elgar.

Great news.
I loved this when it was first shown on the South Bank Show.
It has the same magic as Ken's first Elgar film; this time in full colour.
I remember the bright greens, blues and reds expressing an innocent love of nature and life and Elgar's music taking us beyond to a transcendence of even this joyous vision.
Hope it happens and can't wait.
