Aerial view taken 2000, photo courtesy Keith Poulton57 viewsInto my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those tin remembered roofs?
What bell, what kids are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain.
Hot dusty classrooms where I went
And cannot come again.

A film for April Fools88 viewsBlack Eagle - possibly the lamest film made in Malta (or anywhere), despite Van Damme's and Kosugi's best (or worst) efforts. Not made as a comedy but laughable in every way, redeemed only by the scenery (but of course no extras available from TH to save the day, 1988).
