Fancy Remembering That

I dreamed I was in a class that was learning about the Duke of Marlborough. The lecturer ran out of things to say and the silence was embarrassing us all so I piped up and said, "40 years ago the BBC aired a drama series abut the Duke starring John Neville and Susan Hampshire." The odd thing is I was quite right.

In my experience it's unusual to be able to access one's memory banks in a dream and come up with that sort of accurate information- complete with names and approximate dates.

The series was called The First Churchills. It aired in 1969 and was the first programme to feature on Masterpiece Theatre- PBS' long-running showcase for British costume drama.
