That was a really fun way to do a pure infodump and a half!

I did have to stop for a moment and take a breather then start again, because that script is SO out of format for anything after the 1990's or so - the "if we can afford it," or "can we get stock footage" type lines in a current script would get the whole thing binned.

Then, during me breather I remembered certain scripts I have from the 1940's to 1980's, and that type of commentary WAS allowed in scripts back then (boy, some of Harlan Ellison's scripts... Or Douglas Adams...).

Thus, with my anal retentive brain reassured that this script format was plausible, I could relax and enjoy a pure chapter of background information.

Besides - I LIKE lore!

Really enjoyed that Simon. However, for a week when you’re meant to be taking it easy, it did seem like a lot of work 😁

Happy birthday, have a great time off and hope you finally manage to shake the lurgy 👍🏼

Thanks, Daniel! I think I'm nearly there with this dang lurgy. You know that thing where you come out the other side of a migraine or cold/flu and it's only THEN that you realise quite how foggy you'd been previously? That's happened, so I think that's a good sign. :)
