A wonderful invention, the VCR!

In this version, Gibson's dog 'Nig.ger' doesn't have a name at all - hence the odd continuity thanks to the hacked about scenes.

I am outraged that the TV companies have capitulated to PC in a Classic movie. You can't change the name. We all know what it is and so should the populace. Perhaps HRH has a point about PC - where valid and important memories and matters of historic interest are being desecrated for the sake of a bunch of hypocrites.

What about the BLACK ONLY AWARDS? What about a 'proposed' ban on WHITE male MP's (according to todays Mail on Sunday). The world has gone 'kin mad.

I watch that movie several times a year. Brilliant stuff!

But if you listen carefully, and speak the morse-ish tongue, the real name was still there.......

(I may stay on this forum for a while, people are being rude to me on the Mil Forum )

You just have to understand the twin concepts of irony, and most importantly banter (a UK Mil tradition) and you'll be fine!

Actually Wycombe old chap, my parenthetical remarks above were ... err ... ironic. And my banter (for which 30+ years RAF service has trained me) is on the mil forum (Home to Duty thread inter alia) for your inspection........

But I thank you for your kind and helpful thoughts.

Went for a looksee and return suitably amused.

Thank God for the Mil Forum, almost feel myself back in the light blue (and sometimes green!) again....all the fun without the things that weren't
