The star was a fellow named James Newill whose details can easily be tracked on the internet.
A month or two ago I was listening to Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony (The Pathetique) 3rd Movement on the radio. This splendid music suddenly evoked memories of the Renfrew films I'd seen as a kid. Although I can't check it out, I got to believe that I was re-hearing the rousing introduction music to the Renfrew films. It seemed to interact with my sub-conscious mind to such an extent that I was certain the Tchaikovsky symphony was used in those films.
Can anyone confirm this for me or, alternatively, debunk this impression?
