We knew some former Rhodesian farmers in one of our overseas postings. One was telling me that on the old family farm, back in the day, were some local retainers, Africans, that he was powerfully fond of. One was named AirportRunway and you’d say the whole name every time you called out to him. “Hey, AirportRunway, come here.” (as if “Hey Airport…” wouldn’t get his attention.)
Another field hand was named BBC news.
What follows here is something done by BBC news, that’s either the work of that favored Rhodesian farm hand, or it’s the work of the British Broadcasting Company.
Either way, this piece of film speaks to me in an eloquent way. Click it on, you’ll see.
