Watership Down Trailer

The BBC are producing a “new adaptation of Watership Down [that] uses Richard Adams’ bestselling novel as its source to bring an innovative interpretation to the much loved classic”.
I’m not sure what that exactly means, but it looks like Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig and the others will be along.
It wouldn’t be the same without Art Garfunkel’s song, I wonder if it will be included or homaged somehow.
Here’s the trailer.

Snow In The Sahara

As we swelter away in Mount Gambier with the temperature making it to 41 degrees Celsius yesterday and it’s back up to 36 degrees today about midday, here’s a slightly surreal BBC video featuring the town of Ain Sefra, on the edge of the Sahara desert, where, as unlikely as it may seem, they had snow.
Snow and the Sahara.
Not usually thought of together.
