  1. Glad to have clarified the cricket situation for you (although I suspect I confused myself in the process).

    The ‘political incorectness’ of old pop culture like the Greyfriars stories is, I think, one of those things we just have to accept about the past – it was different and popular attitudes were different then. No matter how offensive some of the racial epithets they used or attitudes displayed might seem to us now, we cannot falsify the past. These stories are an artefact of their era and, as such, give us a fascinating insight into how much attitudes have changed.

    On the subject of the Greyfriars stories, whilst searching for something else entirely on, I stumbled across a page devoted to Billy Bunter-related recordings. I’m sure you are way ahead of me and have already listened to them, but if you haven’t, they are at Whilst the dramatisations are, I’m sure, still in copyright (I think they’re 1980s and 90s BBC productions), the bulk of the recordings are reminisences by Charles Hamilton (aka ‘Frank Richards’) himself, made prior to his death in 1961, so might well be in the public domain. Those I’ve listened to are pretty interesting.

  2. Thanks!! Somehow I had missed this completely. Am up to the 27th of 1380 ‘novels’ (theyre shorter than a real book), and fascinated by the material.
