But Emily Loved Him

After yesterday's pronouncement that 5 year olds may be taught about the birds and the bees, comes news that they may get to discover the cat.

Without getting too sentimental and becoming a TV talking head reminiscing about remembering Captain Pugwash, I did feel a tinge of excitement at the news. Off I went to Youtube to discover why I failed - many years ago - to answer the perennial quiz question about the colour of Bagpuss. This is where I wax lyrically about only having a black and white TV and no scalectrix but I don't wish to labour my deprived upbringing (young people today with their Wii, ipods and immunisations).
