England wants your Gold
Nov 10, 2015

‘You incline to put me on a pedestal, which I don’t like. I prefer to be what I am – a poor errant soul forever seeking and seldom finding – a pilgrim of the world and of life.’…. Jan Smuts.

This one hour drama-documentary, with its dramatized cameo scenes in which his look-alike grandson takes on the role of Jan Smuts, battle re-enactments, historical archival footage, comments from historians, political analysts, and South African political struggle heroes, looks back on his life and the circumstances that shaped it in search of some answers.

Honest & True
Title / Company: FR

“There is something so honest, so true… authentic about

CALL THE STATIONMASTER. There’s also something marvellously

Catholic about it: the lust for life, the experimentation with relationships,

the growing exercise of conscience and the sense of spiritual pilgrimage.

by Caroline Smart on The Flawed Genius of Jan Smuts
Amazing work!!
Title / Company: Editor of Art Smart

With his extensive experience in television and the power of the camera to capture nuances of images, Herrington describes situations and characters well. If England Wants Your Gold is anything to go by, the forthcoming two novels should make the basis of a good three-part television series.

Wonderful piece of work
Title / Company: HPSCA Reg Counsellor

Congratulations on a wonderful piece of work. I think it did a fine job in trying to portray such and enigmatic and great man. It is such a shame that that a figure of his stature is virtually forgotten and misunderstood in his own country!

Just wanted to congratulate you on an excellent documentary on the Oubaas, I very much enjoyed watching it today. JC certainly looks a lot like his grandfather, doesn’t he!
