  1. That was a very good potted guide to Lewes, Richard. You’d clearly researched the history well & your bouncy delivery style would appeal hugely to younger viewers I imagine, as well as adults. Have you asked the Tourist Board if it would stream it as a video there, and/or sell as a dvd? Maybe you can do an app as a walking guide. I think the CoC were planning something.
    The major omission was shots of Bonfire of course which is a timing issue. By way of accuracy, I also query some of your pronunciations eg Keere St, Lewesians. And Bill S says ‘West Sussex’ & he meant ‘East Sussex’ as that is where Lewes lies.
    All the best, Jane
