Malcolm Saville on TV

Yesterday evening I switched on the television to watch my recording of Cricket on Five (I knew what would happen, groan) and the first word I heard was ‘Witchend’. Countryfile, which I never watch, was in Shropshire. There was quite a lot about Malcolm Saville, including an interview with his daughter Rosemary. They even showed a couple of book covers, including this one


which happens to be a favourite of mine. I’m rather annoyed that the listings didn’t mention Saville as one of the highlights of the programme. It’s available to watch on the iPlayer here. The Saville section will be about forty minutes into the programme, I think.
