    This was the BBC’s brilliant version of Last of the Mohicans in 1971. It was filmed in a Scottish glen and my husband and I were innocently driving along when we came across a very realistic ‘fort’. Then we saw the canoe on the river and several ‘Mohicans ‘ in full Indian dress standing around in front of ordinary British caravans, drinking tea and smoking. Pity it was before the days of selfies!

    Two of my favourites - one from either side of the pond.





    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    It's a myth that everyone in Britain is a loveable middle-class eccentric? - How disheartening to hear.

    Well somebody has to, so it might as well be me.



    I believe the first series theme had vocals but my memory doesn't stretch that far back (I was only four years old in 1960).

    This is what funk sounds like when it is played by white guys and this is why white guys probably shouldn't play funk.
