Horses and Belle — 4 Comments

  1. I too thought White Horses was set in France. In my head it was in the Camargue but no it’s Slovenia. The theme tune has been voted the greatest ever television them tune. I think you were forced to watch it because I wanted to see it because of the horses. I must ask Sarah.

  2. Ah Lipizzaners, the choice of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna . . beautiful things. I’ve never heard of White Horses but would have certainly watched it . . .she has a poor seat that girl and her horse is over the bit!

    The best children’s shows are on ABC (equivalent of the BBC) despite the odd awful cartoon, they have remarkable Aussie and English series that even I can tolerate. Round the Twist, The Worst Witch, BlueWater High . . of course in my time Skippy The Bush Kangaroo! I take it the school break has begun as our winter creeps in?

  3. The English summer break is from mid-July until the end of August – Oz is looking forward to spring before England reaches its summer.

    I used to love Skippy! “What’s that Skip? There’s been a car crash and you have applied first aid and alerted the emergency services”.

    Do you remember Boney?

  4. Haha indeed I do. A white NZ actor playing a black outback policeman! Hilarious. Pretty good view of life in the bush.
