Good entertainment
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.

Thinking beck to watching Lawrence of Arabia and the derailing of a train then. They used the explosives as the train passed so the blast effect would also derail it.
