does anybody remember the tv show from the 70's or 80's where an expert did
something then the three teams try it ...and make a mess? ....... one week
there was bricklaying and the bricklayer used plasticiser and the three
teams obviously had none and made a right mess....always remember that
...bit unfair I thought......
No it was not, and in any case you do not need plasticizer if you get the
mix right according to a now deceased friend.
Most people make it either runny or like treacle in one case it does not
stay where its put and in the other it clumps.
There was a show hosted by John Pertwee called can do no can do that went

generation game but were trying to come up with ideas of a similar nature.

Point of order, Mr Gaff. It's Jon Pertwee, not John. Apart from knowing
about The Navy Lark and Doctor Who, I went to school with his nephew and
consequently learned to to spell Jon, Roland, Michael and Bill fairly
early on in life.
Indeeed. Bill was a great friend, Once he had to appear on stage at the
Imperial War Museum and insisted that I was responsible for the stage
lighting. "Last time I was on that stage, there wss more light on the
audience than on the stage." And so began an interesting collaboration.
The IWM made me their Honorary Stage Lighting advisor. And some interesting
people appeared on that stage. Joanna Lumley, Joy Adamson & Freddy Trueman
to name but a few.
