We Have Watched Many Animal Programmes Lately,

many of them featuring Gnus,

and their annual migration across the Serengeti which every time I watch them reminded me of the Gnu song, recorded by two once household names in the UK Flanders and Swann, it was made in the days of radio and black and white television in the mid 1950s, the song is about a Gnu in a zoo and in a bedroom, great fun in those innocent days of early broadcasting, having listened to I'm A Gnu I just had to listen to more Flanders and Swann songs that I had not heard for years, in fact some of them I listen to with my father and grandfather in Plumstead, how time flies!
