You're right, Peter. I, too found it peaceful and Ransomean, a splendid word - it deserves a place in the OED straight away - which instantly sums up all we like about his descriptions of people and places. Our local canal, the Basingstoke, is five minutes' walk away, and whenever I walk the dog along the tow path in the Spring I think of scenes from CC.

The slow television programmes are very good. The other evening I watched the two hour canal boat chug along the Kennet & Avon, and felt totally relaxed after a somewhat hectic day. The first time I saw it I thought it was a pity AR had not set something on a narrow boat. Malcolm Saville redressed the balance, and now the Wests have almost combined the two.
