George Clarke (Amazing Spaces) returns in The Restoration Man with a whole range of new families and brand new restoration projects. All 16 episodes from the second series feature in this 4 DVD disc set. Each episode features a family taking on the emotional and financial rollercoaster of restoring an old building - many of which are literally falling down or are listed with planning restrictions. In 2011 the 'Heritage at Risk Register' had a staggering 5,828 entries. However thanks to restoration projects this statistic is over half of what it was ten years ago. But restoring old buildings isn't for the faint hearted and throughout the filming of the series George is on hand to offer advice and support to these restoration warriors wherever he can. Projects include the restoration of a water tower in Cheshire, Victorian brickworks in Oxfordshire, and a Yorkshire steam train water tower. Each building has a unique story to tell, so George tries to uncover the architectural and historical significance of building.

Desperately wanting to get away from home for the summer, Dori Hammond, talks her father into sending her to a summer riding school. However, she quickly learns that this is not a traditional riding school, and its unusual training methods are cause for alarm. However, having signed the required contract, she and the other students are obliged to submit to a rigorous training regimen. Unbeknownst to them, they’ll be methodically transformed into human ponies. Headmistress Wright and Headmaster Boswick employ mechanical horses, strict restraint, suspensions, impalement, and the resources of the farm's deepest cellars. Their female students quickly learn what a horse's life is really like and that misconduct will lead to severe punishment. Riding, as the girls discover, is more than taking a pony around the ring. As Head Master Boswick says, "You can't learn to ride until you've been ridden." Though the girls may resist the humiliating treatment, they often experience an overwhelming sexual satisfaction in the pleasure and pain they are forced to suffer. Not all the students are at the school voluntarily. Many are spoiled and unruly young women sent there by their wealthy parents. One unlucky German girl, Lucy, is kidnapped on an overnight train and sent to the school, the abduction arranged for by her Dutch boyfriend. Dori and her fellow students are subjected to discipline and training from both the male and female staff. For those who resist, there is the dairy barn where the girls are turned into human cows. And for those incorrigible young females who fail in equine training and in the dairy barn, there is the lowly squalor of the Hog Farm, where they are good for nothing but sexual sport. For Dori and the others, it becomes clear long before the end of the story that their lives will be transformed forever, in ways they never imagined. In addition to details scenes of human pony training, the inventive story includes graphic des 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Reid.

Following the horrors of Kristallnacht in November of 1938, frightened parents were forced to find refuge for their children, far from the escalating anti-Jewish violence. A courageous group of Belgian women organized a desperate and highly dangerous rescue mission to usher nearly 1,000 children out of Germany and Austria. Of these children, 93 were placed on a freight train, traveling through the night away from their families and into the relative safety of Vichy France. The children along with their protectors spent a harsh winter in an abandoned barn with little food before eventually finding shelter in the isolated Château de la Hille in southern France. While several of the youngest children were safely routed to the United States, those who remained continued to be hunted by Nazi soldiers until finally smuggled illegally across the Swiss Alps to safe houses. Remarkably, all but 11 of the original 93 children survived the war due to the unrelenting efforts of their protectors and their own resilience. As one of the La Hille children, Reed recalls traveling from abandoned convents to stately homes in the foothills of the Pyrenees, always scrambling to keep one step ahead of the Nazis. 1.
