Synopsis
In her book The King of the Norfolk Poachers Charlotte Paton described the results of her search for Frederick Rolfe’s real life, comparing it with the account published in Lilias Rider Haggard’s book I Walked by Night. In this companion DVD Charlotte shows how she went about her search and interviews people associated with Rolfe and his world. There are also memorable scenes of poaching skills.
