Yes. Six o clock one Saturday night, sitting on the floor in front of a fourteen inch black and white tele.

I remember watching the first Doctor Who episode. I’d been looking forward to it because a new TV series was an event in England in 1963 with only 2 channels, BBC and ITV, but President Kennedy had been assassinated the day before and all the regular TV programmes had been cancelled, so I thought that I’d have to wait through a whole horrible week of school before I could see the programme. It was such a reprieve when the music started, and I was intrigued from the start by the Doctor’s granddaughter Susan, a new girl in school, knowing so much more than her teachers. I remember her reading a history book, and saying something along the lines of, ‘But that isn’t how it happened at all.’

Aussietrekker, thanks for recommending Mary Rose Liverani’s book ‘The Winter Sparrows.’ It’s a fascinating read, just like your memoirs.
