Anniversaries

The 70th anniversary of the outbreak of WW2 went by without a great deal of fuss. There were news stories featuring the memories of child evacuees and the BBC is headlining a lightweight drama series about Land Army girls. I guess it's hard to get the tone right when you're commemorating the outbreak of the most terrible war in human history. 

Meanwhile the Beatles are everywhere. This is mainly because of the issue of the remastered versions of their albums, but also I suppose because we're in the season of the 40th anniversary of their break-up. I've no complaints. I love the Beatles.
