Yes, if Prunella Scales had read CC a few months ago she would most likely have forgotten it now. Instead she relied on long-term memory of reading AR as a child, which I found quite genuine. The programme is not meant to be accurate reportage of a "the Norfolk Broads today" type, but is a film of a gentle cruise, mainly playing on the affectionate and whimsical relationship of the couple. It is really part of the "slow television" fashion at the moment. I found it peaceful and somehow Ransomean. We do hear about some modern hullabaloos being apprehended!
