RE: Quiet desparation
Imagine a German produced WW2 sitcom (complete with Nazi and Gestapo characters) becoming a prime time hit both in Britain and the US.
The Poms did it with 'Allo Allo' the Yanks with 'Hogans Heroes', both hugely popular in Germany.
Perhaps 'The cross eyed Kamikaze' from Japanese television (with subtitles of course).
Gill's book will be a huge seller - in the UK only of course.
Its pitiful truth may prove too boring for most of the rest of the world to bother.
But I just may - eventually, - just for a laugh.
Now there's a funny desparate thought.
