Better This World

Set amid arrests and subsequent trials surrounding the 2008 Republican National Convention, this portrait of two young activists caught in the web of an opportunistic mentor and a desperate justice system poignantly describes both the problems of power and the power of forgiveness and love.


Shot in June 2002 at JB’s in Dudley, the spiritual home of the band, us Ned’s fans have had a patient 16 month wait for this DVD to be released.
It was truly worth the wait though, this is a great DVD that captures an excellent performance by the Ned’s. Although not the original line up, this does not detract. Since 2000, Mat Cheslin & Rat have been replaced by ex-Groundswell members Andy King and Martin Warlow respectively. They both played a blinder at this show, especially Martin who has the unenviable task of filling Rat’s boots.
Shot in widescreen,the concert is captured well on the DVD and the special features are ok too.
