>The Climb

>Back home after a couple of days away. The recording of the radio play went well – great performances from Paul Clarkson and John Flitcroft. It was a fun production with John pedalling away on a static bike while Paul jogged back and fore to simulate riding with him. Thanks to all involved (Paul, John, Peter, Rosie, Michael, Cath and Christina). Now they’ll edit a rough-cut of key passages and record the music in time with them. I’m looking forward to hearing Soweto’s music. The full edit should be available mid-June. And did I mention that it’s broadcast on JULY 4TH.

P’s son J is home from two years abroad. We’ve moved house of course, but he still found us. It’s good to have him around again.

The picture on the left is from the 1964 Tour de France. Jacques Anquetil (5 time winner) goes shoulder to shoulder with Raymond Poulidor (‘the eternal second’) on the Puy de Dôme. Poulidor eventually broke away to win the stage, but Anquetil took the race. Anquetil is the only TdF winner to admit to doping before today.
