The sketch in the lift
We referred to a comedy sketch by a couple of Scots about a voice activated lift – Robin posted this on Facebook. I thought it was jolly funny! See if you can spot the Braveheart reference…
Scores on the Doors

Wolf and David scores – and the Facebook Poll
Brilliant debate – for some of you the value of the film was in the anti war polemic and the accurate portrayal of the end point of it all – the Charge itself.

An interesting film for debate maybe, rather than an inspiration.
