Well, the Spammer is indeed gone. Hooray!

Another older Television series I seem to have missed so far.
I stumbled over "Seal Morning" on YouTube some weeks ago, which I 
remembered from TV back then:

And had a look what other things Holly Aird did, then found this as 
a used DVD set, being out of print for some time.

Nice nature shots, nice Railway shots, and a cute little Elspeth 
who seems to grasp better than all the adults how this Africa 
thing is supposed to work. ;-)

Might also be worthwile to put on the reading list
