[edit] Information

Clive James sends a postcard.

[edit] Chapter 1. Sydney

The Aussie revisits his home town after 30 years away and finds it has flourished in his absence, turning into one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. He admires the new skyscrapers competing with the famous Harbour Bridge and Opera House on the city's skyline, samples the region's wines, and reminisces about his youth as a surf-hero.

[edit] Chapter 2. London

The Aussie recalls his experiences of London life in the early 1960s. In between his visits to some of London's tourist sites, such as the National Gallery - "still the best free show in town" - James trades anecdotes with some of his famous friends. Victoria Wood explains how she once shared a bed with him without him knowing. Terence Donovan fondly recalls the sense of freedom in the sixties and the effect that miniskirts had on his driving. Peter Cook evokes a cutting edge side of the capital as he talks about The Establishment, the satirical nightclub he started in Soho and where the legendary Lenny Bruce would perform from time to time. And Michael Caine explains why he won't eat a doughnut with a hole in it to this day!
