Windy, thanks for putting news of this forthcoming Kaleidoscope event on the forum. I am certainly interested in going to another one; the previous event was very enjoyable and interesting. I'll have to look in my diary to check I'm OK for that particular date.

I agree with you about the last Kaleidoscope event, and the agenda for this one looks equally as good, if not better. In particular the Steptoe & Son US Pilot and the Pete & Dud special are a couple of highlights for me.
You’ll need to register for the event like last time, Vienna.
