Just unfinished business. Largely because the Turkish government tore up
the Treaty of Sèvres (I had to look that one up – one of the many
useless things I was supposed to memorise in school history was the
various peace treaties that supposedly ended the Great War, and the only
one I have ever been able to remember was the one signed in the Chamber of
Horrors at Versailles). The unpleasantness between 1939 and 1945 was
merely a major flare-up in my estimation.

me was just a prefix in organic chemistry alongside cis- and iso-),
wicked, and many others?

I lost track of it after William Hartnell moved on to other things.

Proper actor he was. That voice could reach the back of the Stalls
without any effort.

I've not checked recently but in the past I've found Doctor Who
episodes have appeared on dailymotion.com pretty soon after broadcast.
Beware the ones that pretend to be episodes but are really long
adverts for streaming services. Watching on DailyMotion is not in
breach of TV Licencing conditions so they can't touch you for it. It
is a breach of copyright, though an attitude of "come and get me if
you think you're hard enough" should get you though.

My mother often said that at RADA they taught her to project her voice
as if she were speaking personally to two little old ladies sitting in
the back of the stalls. "Because in Rep, on a matinee, that's probably
all you'll be peforming for."

I got roped into a small amount of acting at school - still not sure why
- but the ring leader arranged that we did rehearsal on the school stage
and one of our classmates sat at the back and was able to confirm that
he could hear most of what we said (it seemed a large hall at the time
but if it is still there (doubtful)) and subsequently we were rather
glad he did because the competition had clearly not undertaken this
simple precaution and as we sat through the other playlets it became
clear that we could not hear some of it even in the middle of the hall
because no-one was projecting.

We even won the prize! Which was to perform in front of a proper
audience in the same hall.

Did you want to? I am reminded of the old joke in the 1970s, when Radio
Prague (I was a "short-wave listener") used to do an essay competition,
first prize being a week in the wonderful people's republic (actually,
maybe it wasn't Prague; I don't think Czechoslovakia was ever that). The
joke was that the second prize was two weeks there ...

What has happened since 1979, I suspect, is that the spotting of mistakes has
become entirely associated with mean-spiritedness, snobbishness and
judgementalism. But...can be...funny and interesting.

What has happened since 1979, I suspect, is that the spotting of mistakes has
become entirely associated with mean-spiritedness, snobbishness and
judgementalism. But...can be...funny and interesting.

I learned to project my voice as a Flight Sergeant on the ATC Parade

Wow, I had to read quite carefully into that - it's apparently come back
into use as meaning China, actually proudly or disdainfully depending on
context. Some people must be _very_ sensitive if they object to a
character in Doctor Who being called the Celestial Toymaker!

In the early 17th Century the Ligurian Coast was subject to frequent
attacks from the Saracens. The villagers in Taggia saw the ships
approaching one day so the priest, Father Benedict, had the idea to
light fires in the squares and streets of the village to make the
pirates believe that it had already been sacked. And it worked: from the
sea the city appeared to them in flames and they left. Every February
12th Taggia remembers this event.

On the middle weekend fires are lit again, circles of logs are built and
filled with olive tree cuttings and ignited even in the narrow alleyways
- it would never be allowed to happen in the UK. Homemade fireworks are
also deployed "i furgari" that are as big as your arm and fire huge jets
of flame. <https://youtu.be/X5mY_3imZGU>

On the last weekend of the February there is a procession on the Sunday
afternoon of villagers in 17C costume and in the morning the different
rione (hamlets) stage a play about some aspect of life at the time of
the saint. Each play is about 15 minutes long and is repeated several
times - 8 was the most for me - in the streets. Marks are awarded for
the script and acting and the authenticity - no modern haircuts or
jewellery allowed !

I first got involved in 2008 when Gianna, an Aussie-Italian friend in
the village asked if I could take the place of someone who had dropped
out to play the part of Lord Barry, a courtier come to buy the local
wine. I went for an addition and learned afterwards that Umberto, the
director, hugged and kissed Gianna after I looked down my nose and
recited "King Charles LOVES moscatello wine. It is ALWAYS on his table"
and said I was perfect for the role of a fat, pompous Englishman. It was
great fun, especially the bit where I dropped grapes down the
winemaker's wife's cleavage. I just had to stroll about with a beautiful
young lady on my arm and had 2 short lines. The only long speech I had
was read from a scroll, so nothing to remember and all in English.

The next year I was asked back and waife took part too. We went to the
first read through and just had minor roles and only a couple of words
to say when we saw the pirate ships "I turchi, i turchi !" The whole
room fell about laughing at my terrible pronunciation and at least 10
minutes of every rehearsal was spent trying to get me to say that u
properly. LOL Unfortunately that year it drizzled all morning and poor
Vib spent most of the play hiding under a sheet which got soggier and
soggier as the day went on and swore never again.

More plays followed, usually with small parts, but one where I played
the ghost of Hamlet's father - I really put the Ham in that (video
available if you are interested). Then came this play set during the
Battle of Bajardo during the struggle between the Duchy of Savoy and the
Republic of Genoa.

My dreadful accent was excused by my being an English sailor who had
fought with Frobisher and Drake and was now a PTSD suffering village
drunk. More type-casting ! There were a lot of laughs in the audience
from my mangling of the more difficult words that I think Umberto had
put in the script deliberately for me.

The most interesting play we did though was a version of A Midsummer
Night's Dream, part in Italian and part in English. As the only native
English speaking man I had the roles of both Bottom and Oberon, and Vib
was Helen. Luckily it was a cutdown text and we had scripts for most of
it so not too difficult to remember and great fun again. It was set in
the garden of the wonderfully atmospheric Bicknell Museum in Sanremo
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicknell_Museum#/media/File:Museo_Bicknell_facciata.jpg>

I also had the pleasure of performing with my granddaughter who played
Cobwed, but was a bit overwhelmed by the occasion at 3yo and did much
better at one of the San Benedetto plays a year later. It's a real shame
we have no video of MSND but I do have a video of that last performance
with her which will be worth a fortune when she's a famous performer.
