    Default The Sailing Dutchman - another interesting video

    I've got no connection to this man - honest!

    He seems very good with historical events relating to the IJsselmeer/N Holland.

    The music is not to my taste - turn it down if you want - no voiceover, everything captioned in English.

    IMO quite moving.

    Interesting. I'd like to have known more about the museum and where it is, which probably flashed by at some point.

    Poor old Brahms doesn't get a mention for his music. I prefer music which is not standard repertoire, but it did give a sense of distance in time to the film. There is a connection with the Beethoven at the beginning, since it was the beginning of this that was used by the BBC as it's calling signal during the war.

    I may have sailed over those bombs several times, eek!
    Far away is near at hand in images of elsewhere
