# I remember the name but nothing more
so it might have been just before my time.

Stig of the Dump, I remember reading the book of it when I was young but I think I just missed the telly series. Which is a pity because it would have been brilliant.

# I loved Fantastic Mr Fox
I particularly loved the diagram of his tunnels digging into the three cellars.

I might watch the film anyway, and then spend about 20 minutes reading the book...

# The tunnels drawing...
Yes I used to spend ages looking at that picture.

Must buy this book again I think...

# we had to read Z for Zachariah at school
and watch the dodgy 1984 produced film... it was about a valley in Wales surviving a nuclear holocaust because it had its own micro climate. The lead was a teenage girl, then this bloke in a radiation suit comes in with a rifle and tries to rape her. Another one of those feel good nuclear films of the 80s, needed a soundtrack by Limahl to cheer it up really.

# It's all we have.
Since WW2 and more lately, Footy in 1966,
England has errrrrrr......eeeeeerrrrrrmmmmm.

Fond memories is all we have.

Nostalgia for children's things is at
the top of the warm fuzzy memory list.
