** spoiler alert ** Michael Palin reads Captain WE Johns' adventure.

We are so used to hearing about firearms that a good ol' knuckle-sandwich somehow seems more aggressive.

You can't beat Biggles - the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end just thinking of his adventures and I am with you as he flies north! W E Johns created a great character but I do wonder if today's generation of boys would read it.
