Where do you find them, David?


Good to hear from you David (it's been a bit quiet, comment-wise, this last week). The short answer, of course, is YouTube. But you have to dig below the surface.

Andrew Kingham

Hasn't it been a comment-free few days? Everybody away? Or have they all got too much work and poorly children, like me?


Andrew: It's the end of term and the first week of the (so called - in England at least) summer holiday, so I imagine that it's all of those things.

Unless, of course, they've all caught the very, very rare helvetica.

Brad Brooks

I had that Helvetica once.

I got better.

Seriously though, is that from "Look Around You?"


You could well be right Brad. Does anyone else know?


Yes it is from the first series of Look Around You. One of THE funniest programs to come out of the bbc.
