Don't Like Jamaica. I Love It. Sentiments once in a pop song, now firmly in the head of Phillip Schofield. Taking a break from children's television he finds himself up to his knees in children on the Caribbean island. Desmond's also on a sunshine island. On the Canary Island of Tenerife he meets hibernating senior citizens who have swapped daffs and crocuses in the snow for gladioli by the sea. And Mozart and Julie Andrews meet in the Austrian city of Salzburg. As Gillian Reynolds discovers, they complement rather than clash.
