The BBC 'Greatest Briton' Award:- For fuller details please visit http://www.churchill-society-london.org.uk/lttrs.bbc.html
The editor of this page, when a toddler 70 years ago, had a set of these building blocks.
The BBC will not reveal how much money the 'Greatest Briton' programme made; or how much the above cost to make: or how the 'artist' (?) was selected, and why he had to have his staff - 'computer create' - his - 'ideas' - when such toys are commonplace.
Today these blocks are also used by psychiatrists in testing backward children's mental abilities.
_____________________ The installation in St Paul's Cathedral of the magnificant gates From the Daily Telegraph. St Paul's captures spirit of Churchill in steel By Caroline Davies (Filed: 30/11/2004)
The challenge was to capture the spirit of Sir Winston Churchill - not in words, nor in stone, but in steel. Yesterday, as St Paul's Cathedral unveiled a new memorial to Britain's wartime leader, they were confident they had achieved just that.
The eight-metre long Winston Churchill Memorial Screen, a bold but intricate set of gates forged in steel and bronze, stretches across the central axis of the Crypt. It cost £260,000 pounds (paid for anonymously) and took 10 craftsmen 7,000 hours to make and install.
