ESTHER RANTZEN reports on A Weekend in Dorset
This is the story of a sunny weekend this summer. It is also a love story - almost a 1970 version of Romeo and Juliet.
A family live in a cottage near the New Forest. They have two daughters: Fiona, the older, lives trendily in London. Jan, the younger, is in love with a boy who is not approved of by her parents. They are comfortably off -he is a garage mechanic. It could happen in any family.
The end of the story is unexpected-perhaps because it happened in 1970, or perhaps because it is a true story, it doesn'end quite like Romeo and Juliet. It begins one Friday night, with Jan packing up to leave home.
