I first posted the following to sgm and omitted sending it to shm. The
programe was on Channel 4 TV tonight, following another about the true
nature of the crime against the Little Princes in the Tower.
Sadly, we lost the satellite, so I missed much of the programmes. (Drat.)
Anyone else catch them?
