This is still the one and only film of Alfie Mullard, the Cockney culturalist, which has currently been seen 2222 times and has 10 thumbs up and 5 down, however some people really did like it and a few of my friends have been asking for more of Alfie Mullard. I was always going to do a series of him reading Shakespeares sonnets (or “songits” as he calls them) and then getting upset whenever he came across a word that he misunderstood as something rude, but I didn’t quite get to do it yet and that’s something that may well still happen one day.

Check out the insect buzzing across at one point in this – an Idiocerus vitreus, which we had a minor plague of that year.
