Surely some of you watched it.
If you didn't, catch it on BBC IPlayer.

If I don't receive a response soon I shall
feel obliged to spill the beans as to why it is unmissable.

Oh, yes. Sorry, I watched it Tuesday evening. (Hasn't Neil aged?)

Please feel free to fetch the tin-opener, or whatever.

Needlessly to say I clicked on it anyway.
I've already said something to the effect that
Trimble (Walton on Thames) was no "Spring Chicken"
But their recovery from being 45 points down with
4 miiutes to go involved putting on 125 points
without reply.

I have mentioned "graduate" involvement previously
wrt rowing.
