City of the Lost Children Book Cover

Have you seen the French film “City of Lost Children” from the mid-90s?

When I first saw small blurred photo of the Forts in an English newspaper in Morocco, straight away I thought about that film set around a small rusted oil rig where an old professor who has never dreamt kidnaps children to steal their dreams. Quite a beautiful film - Ricardo

Thought you might like to see a painting one of my little pupils has just finished. He's just turned 8 and its in oils think its quite fun - Ricardo

13/07/07 - I am excited by your Red Sands Project, & do not want to take up too much of your time when you are preparing for the event which is up & coming this month. Just to let you know I will be trying to tune in on AM. I will make a front page mention of your station on my website. I was amazed a couple of days ago when looking through my CD's etc, how many of your documentaries I have.

I wish you every success with Red Sands &d complement you on a really exciting web site as usual. An anorak with radio roots comes up trumps again & again. I am also amazed you have kept some of the old BASF tape guides etc - I was browsing your CD's & books and note that you have improved those pages as well. All the Best, Keith Knight the wireless waffler

09/07/07 - Many Congratulations to all Bob-a real achievement.
