Coming to the end of an all-too-short winter sojourn in Tenerife and finishing reading the several books that I brought with me, one of which is "And it's goodnight from him - the autobiography of the Two Ronnies", written by Ronnie Corbett. In it he makes mention of the mini-serial, "The Worm That Turns" that ran throughout series 8 of the Two Ronnies in 1980 and starred Diana Dors.
As I'm sure most of you will recall, it was set in a fururistic Britain (actually in the second decade of the 21st century) in a land governed by women. The chief of police was a woman, men's clubs were banned, gents only toilets were abolished and there was no longer a Big Ben.
Now of course we know that some of these things are too ridiculous to ever come true...
