    It was a great series and brilliant book.
    They should do a follow up - or a new one with a gamie that's just starting out.

    Go on then, I'll take it for a tenner. Drop me a PM letting me know how you'd like me to get it to you.

    Ach! Would have had this if I had seen it sooner. I watched that series when I was wee and loved it. Got the series taped somewhere. Anyway, as you said the music made it for me and can be found easily on Grooveshark.com, youtube or Spotify etc. The band was called The Iron Horse and the album was The Voice of the Land in case anyone was interested in listening to it for free. Took me back a bit.

    ChrisWill - I've a copy, it was a good read, you are welcome to have it.
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.
