Poppyland is the story of theatre critic and travel writer Clement Scott arriving in north Norfolk in August, 1883, giving the area the name Poppyland and popularising it through his travel column in the Daily Telegraph. It is through his popularisation of the area that north Norfolk is as we know it today.
Actress Bryonie Pritchard, who has herself sung Scott's "Garden of Sleep" on stage, narrates the story, and Michael Strobel provides Scott's voice to bring his poems and prose to life. With music from Alistair Murphy, developed from Isidore de Lara's original Victorian theme, and film from Cromer, Overstrand, London and even Niagara Falls, the life of Clement Scott and 'Maid of the Mill' Louie Jermy can be enjoyed on screen.
The DVD menu proivdes the chance to hear Isidore de Laura's 'Garden of Sleep' song in its entirety.
