Len surprises Angela by arranging for them to travel on a vintage bus to the actual camp Angela stayed in, where she teaches him to make a bed with perfect hospital corners. They also eat the kinds of food she would have and Angela introduces an intrigued Len to a lettuce and sugar sandwich.

A visit to Mount Edgcumbe wouldn't be complete without a visit to the splendid country house. Here, Len surprises Angela once more by showing her a news item about the house she made for local news decades ago. They talk about Angela's varied career in broadcasting, as well as time presenting Come Dancing in the 1980s.
