What I learned from Only Connect tonight

The connection between Penguin and Wales
Spoiler: show
Some dictionaries suggest a derivation from Welsh pen, "head" and gwyn, "white",[10] including the Oxford English Dictionary, the American Heritage Dictionary,[11] the Century Dictionary[11] and Merriam-Webster,[12] on the basis that the name was originally applied to the great auk, either because it was found on White Head Island (Welsh: Pen Gwyn) in Newfoundland, or because it had white circles around its eyes (though the head was black).

50 Points Mick. :-D The lad from Hexham (as it turns out) was a presenter on "Drive in", on Thames Television and there he was showing of the Rover SD1 in his flared trousers following on from your 76 Princess post on the classics thread.

Yes, if you run through to the end of the video I posted on the PE Video Show, Shaw himself comes on and gives the lowdown on VW Passat and Austin Allegro pricing following Tony's report.
