Ross Poldark, duelling scar and all. The Library has Poldark on DVD, and Father Ted, and just watched the amazing doc Touching the Void (one of the great survival stories). And have also got out the new book Miracle in the Andes by Nando Parrado – the “Alive” story by one of the participants. Have read the Piers Paul Read long long ago, and seen the movie.
On a lighter note, have discovered a shop in Melbourne called Vinyl Solution that has the song on vinyl that I have a strong hankering to hear … A cha cha at the opera. Early 80s I pummelled this one on the jukebox in Te Anau.
