Merry Christmas all

Thanks for that, Kev. I've loaded it up on the laptop to view at my leisure tomorrow. I used to love Jack Hargreaves and very much look forward to watching this.

And a Merry Xmas to you too, chap :thumbsup:

I can remember watching out of town and loving it when I guess I was 5 or 6, that and Bagpuss got me into collecting I think.
