No, Brum.

In my student days, I'm pretty sure that the HNC wasn't open, and that there wasn't yet a University of Huddersfield!

 

It was Huddersfield Poly then.

Pictures attached. 
60ft Peter Nicholls, 1989 build. 
 

Spent the day cleaning as it’s not been used for a year or two. Started my ‘to do’ list including but not limited to;

- New stove

- Alde boiler service

- Bathroom refit 

- Rear cabin refit 

- a million smaller jobs 

 

Back tomorrow to continue the clean!

Was that a remake? I seem to remember the song "Dry Bones" as being much earlier, not really 1970s music?

Maybe something by Dr Feelgood might be more appropriate?

I'd suggest Rock'n'Roll Suicide by David Bowie, or of course Paranoid by Black Sabbath, especially for a medical student intending to specialize in psychiatry.

Sticking with David Bowie, maybe "Sound and Vision" could have been about hearing and eyesight problems? "I will sit right down, waiting for the gift of sound and vision"

Fair point, but "Bad Medicine" was Bon Jovi in the 1980's ...

 

I did deliberately pick the 1969 version of Dry Bones and not the 1840s version! :D

It was a scene from that iconic series The Prisoner. Shot at Portmeirion.

Did they really shoot him - I never saw that in the TV series.

They tried, but he climbed inside a big white balloon (he couldn’t find his Lotus 7) and avoided them...

In the recent episode, which was filmed on 31st October I think, they go through the Figure of Three locks.

  Yes back in October, their Vlogs are about 4 month behind their actual current travel time/location, they are not in the area now as LadyG might of thought and no one will be passing through the Figure of Three locks for at least 12 to 18 month after last week's flooding, no boats will be getting to Huddersfield from that direction.
