Jim Davidson's Falklands Special. Marking the 20th Anniversary of the Falklands War.
Mission To transport Jim Davidson, 5 musicians, 4 dancers, singers, film crew and 5 tons of equipment 8,000 miles to the Falklands. Thursday 20th September Ascension Island - a volcanic rock 5 miles by 9 miles (small), Accommodation - a portacabin (very small) with 24 bunks (cramped) and us (battery hens). Saturday 22nd September Port Stanley - another portacabin. The concert is held in a Coastal (floating barracks). Our little concert party is tremendous... Wednesday 26th September Chopper to Byron Heights; the pilot nearly couldn't find the top in all the mist... Friday 28th September The inevitable helicopter to Goose Green, the most emotive concert we do. Jim's energy after so many long concerts is almost bionic... Saturday 29th September Back to Stanley - and home.
