Brunch With The Brits

Harry LIme could be the headliner but we also have Dad's Army Sceptred Isle and Mike gives a grave insult on the cricket pitch.  Sorry about the late show and have a good Memorial holiday.

This week on Brunch as we begin 262 it's not the shows it's the host's birthday and he reminisces fondly about a trip taken to Palm Springs.  Yes the host is forty now.  Oh yes and we have shows.  We start as always with Harry Lime and the Elusive Vermeer from May 16 of 1952.  Then we go to January 30 of 1996 and hear about Robert Wallpole's downfall.  In dad's ARmy the home guard are sent to guard a pow camp of Italian soldiers from May 13 of 1975 in Don't Fence Me In.  And we conclude with Mike Chapter 13 Mike gets his first chance in Reakin's first eleven at cricket.  You'll learn a lot about baseball's distant cousin.

This week whilst the host celebrates his fortieth you get an episode of Harry Lime called Viva La Chance from May 9 of 1952.  Harry's back in Paris for this crazy misadventure which will have you asking who really got conned?  In Dad's Army meanwhile Walker has birds for Mannering but it's where he puts them that has everyone guessing.  And Sergant Wilson has a little secret too.  On Sceptred Isle we'll learn about Rule Britania and a bottled ear and Mike finally gets his first chance at first class cricket for Reakin.  Enjoy.
