That was something of a surprise as my previous experience of Wintergatan has been:



Which though quite different has similar elements.
The video of the group started at 7' 18". Wound it back to the start and had to kill it - can't abide whistlers.

This little quiz 10 questions comes up with a ranking based on how many you get right and in what time.

6/10 for me and 290th on the rankings list....

Can you do worse/better or exactly the same!

Yes I think we've had our fun....first pic is Young Americans one of my favourite Bowie Tracks, second one "Fame" ie the kids from fame the TV show, so yes David Bowie songs is the link.

Second one is Test Card F. Used to be a very popular programme on BBC2 in its infancy....

The last few years I was at Royal Ascot they had a couple of new bars; Equus and Fashion. I made the suggestion that the latter bar used the David Bowie song "Fashion" as their signature tune, if they were allowed to do so.

.......and now the shipping forecast.

Whilst listening to the shipping forecast earlier, I got to thinking - What other countries have a nationally broadcast, freely accessible shipping forecast that covers all the seas around their land ? I'm not sure there's a definitive answer to it. Anyone know any better ?

And a question for 'top of the head' answers : There are normally 4 broadcasts a day, when was the last time they were temporarily reduced to 3 times a day ?

and my TOH the 3-day week back in the 1970's

and if there is a shipping forecast like "ours" I might suspect somewhere like Australia/ New Zealand or India
