I'm not sure that it helps with the whole Left Bank Two theme tune debate, but my grandad was the security guard who appeared just before the Gallery on Hartbeat - I think he fell asleep or something.

According to this story, "Some 10,000 years ago, the red squirrel had Britain to itself but in 1892 a pair of American grey squirrels were released into the wild." So what was the predominant squirrel colour between 7991BC and (shortly after) 1892?
Caroline, Stuttgart, Germany

Mike (Monday's letters): all very well and good, but how do you suggest they take off?

Another headline with so much promise that just fails to deliver.
