Ten films in which Alan Whicker talks to Brits who have gone to live in the USA.
6: Some Americans Think God was a 17th-century Englishman ...
The Rev Hugh Hildesley is rector at the socially-desirable Church of Heavenly Rest on New York's Fifth Avenue. For years he was an auctioneer at Sotheby's, USA. He is full of praise for the role ordained women play in America: 'the sooner Britain catches up, the better'. Other successful Brits living in New York include Shirley Lord, a Vogue editor: 'you learn not to be a shrinking violet'; the actor Jim Dale; Philip Kingsley, a multi-millionaire trichologist - for, by happy chance, eight out of ten Americans have dandruff; and David Lloyd-Jacob , who has borrowed to start a business and now pays interest of 10,000 dollars a day: 'More than anywhere else in the world, New York tests you. There is a sense of lurking danger, but we love it.'
