A film for April Fools91 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).

The entrance to the Pit 200590 viewsI took this photo when we went back on the 2005 reunion visit. It was then the Castille Wine Vaults. It was closed at the time but I managed to get in and take some photos which will follow on from this one. Ivan, (author of a previous photo) I hope they are of interest. 1 commentsmikew

Aerial view taken 2000, photo courtesy Keith Poulton80 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.
