The love theme by Ralph Vaughan Williams was later used in his 6th Symphony (1947).
When the maid brings water to the 3 people shearing sheep, she brings out 3 mugs but when she places them down there are only 2 and one of the men, who has not been served, brings his mug back.
Opening credits prologue: " The world, according to the best geographers, is divided into Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Romney Marsh".
The Marsh lies where Kent ends and Sussex begins.
A place apart, which man has slowly won, acre by acre, from the sea. A flat land, flat as the sea-bed it once was, and a Marsh only in name, for man has transformed bog and reeds into pasture. An austere land of windswept distances and scattered communities. Lonely now, but lonelier still in 1905.
