Senator William J Tadlock:
The first of two programmes written and presented by HRH The Prince Edward
Prince Edward attempts to discover whether his father's Award Scheme really does help to encourage the full development of the individual.
The large West Indian in the green frock and the ginger wig certainly thought it did, as did the lady jockey, two young reprobates from Liverpool and the man who was worried that it might be treason if he drowned the Queen's youngest son.
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh himself wasn't entirely sure what the scheme had set out to achieve, but, after 30 years and millions of successful participants, he wasn't too concerned about its health.
