On 5 May 1799. Midshipman David Clark , from Arbroath, Angus, died in Jamaica of 'the dreadful fever of this country'. His career in the RN had lasted four years.
For the first time his letters home are made public. They tell an extraordinary story of violence and comradeship; love of family and a willingness for adventure. Readings from the letters, together with other contemporary material and music, give one young man's impression of life in Nelson's navy at the end of the 18th century.

It's the heady days of 1962, and there's a serious omission from the curriculum of the eminently respectable Bryant House Academy for the daughters of the disgustingly rich. Curiously enough, there's a similar lack at the neighbouring Longcombe School for Young Gentlemen. To remedy this glaring omission, under cover of darkness, the Bryant House gym is transformed into the glorious Passion Flower Hotel, where the lucky Longcombe boys can gather to watch, learn, and - for only a little extra - feel.
