I remember on that journey the seamier side of Teeside showed up, it is not all beautiful dales and moors in Yorkshire. Think we ended up in the seaside town of Hartlepool for icecreams. Matilda and Ben playing by the water's edge. Matilda took a tumble and the wave carried her into the sea, her father ran in to pull her out. I wrapped her in my cardigan and we made our way back to the car with a very miserable little girl.
But something to take us back to childhood and H.G.Wells. 'War of the Worlds' adaptation by the BBC - should be good.
