Well Well, would love to see that hover-rangie thingie work.

What did catch my attention was the video on the right bottom, where the 70+ year old lady get a bit of a shock for not obeying the Police Man who stands about twice her hight. Hmmmmm, Not to sure about that one. :confused:

There was a good piece on the 1830 BBC1 South Today News program tracing the history and featuring John Gifford.

Well done John.

Cheers
