"The construction of a refinery on Kent’s Isle of Grain as seen through the eyes of those it affects and those who are responsible for it being there, all told in a predominantly positive light."

My second building-an-oil-refinery film in a week after The Shetland Experience. I'll try not to make a habit of them ...

Fine by me , but no need at all for you not to identify what you can now , its just a bit of amusement for me, nothing to take seriously :)

Why do all these vehicle have 2-star rating?
I guess it is rather overrated...

Easy - 3* if they're significant onscreen and/or featured in commentary, 2* if they're part of the action and do something which is the focus of the shot, 1* if they're just there in the background with no emphasis. :??:

"part of the action", well indeed if they do something related to the documentary's subject... but that stills seem so many vehicles with a "role"
