Today's picture - Alan Whicker among Sardinian bandits
Sunday's remarkable episode of 'The Choir' which featured the American vocal group 'Tenores de Aterue' who developed a passion for the strange and beautiful vocal music of Sardinia triggered a search in the BBC picture archive for images of Sardinia. The caption for this very odd picture reads:
The 'Whicker's World' team in a lighter mood preparing to repel the bandits - Alan Whicker (third from right) and David C. Rea the producer (third from left). Alan Whicker follows the trail of the 'Bandits of Sardinia' in the latest 'Whicker's World' to be televised on BBC2, 24th February 1968.
