Very good. Good to hear the Tavistock references! I am slightly too young to have enjoyed Python at it's peak. :wink: However is my memory playing tricks on me but was there a similar Python sequence of a European tour, that included a running joke that Tavistock was always seen on the local road signs? (e.g "Berlin 15km, Tavistock 1500km")
