Wow! Thank you, Jock -- marvellous. I'm greatly looking forward to watching that. Now, if we could only find John Macnab....

I remember the BBC's doing a TV series on -- was it Dick Hannay, or others of Buchan's characters? Back in the 70s or 80s perhaps? I don't think it could have been thought to be all that popular, because it didn't seem to last for more than a few episodes. It always started with a short clip of Hannay-or-whoever standing in heathland, lighting a pipe, and flicking the match into a burn where you watched it float away. But at this distance in time I can't tell you anything much more about it, I'm afraid. Does it ring a bell?
