Be Prepared

Written By Andy Rashleigh

With Ian McKellen as Robert Baden-Powell

One of the key figures of the early twentieth century, Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Scout movement, looks back upon a life embodying the spirit of Imperial adventure. From the balcony of his home he regrets, he gives thanks, he wonders if he has at last found something like harmony and peace.
