Not much details as to how, or where, the accident took place. Sounds like he rear-ended a car, BUT was the car parked on the Loop Road (which is not unusual) or did it brake suddenly. Either way he was lucky and he knows it. Shame.

Interesting that folks are still out on the Park ‘this late’. I am sure it is lovely. I wish I could go up there. Miss it.

So, another non-fatal accident.

Alexandra Palace — the home of the first BBC TV studios. My U.K. ‘guardians’ lived directly beneath it, in Muswell Hill, 1969 – 1970, while I was attending Hill Hill. Know it well.


Wow. The Grand Ol’ Lady of Broadcasting — THE British Broadcasting Company (BBC). What a wonderful institution.

And we still watch the BBC — even if it is their superb, incomparable programs on PBS, ‘The Great British Bake Off‘ Seasons 1 -7 but an example.

We get Acorn TV (on our Roku). As such we have access to more BBC programming than most, e.g., the ‘Detectorists‘.

81-years ago. 17-years before I was born. I first got to see BBC TV in August 1967. It was 31-years old by then!
