Conan Doyle: "that'll be fairies at the bottom of the garden, then."

I remember seeing this on 'Arthur C. Clarke's World of Strange Powers' in the 1980s. Anyone remember that programme? I think the late Geoffrey Crawley was on it as well. Good on those two girls who had a laugh at everyone for 70 years. P. T. Barnum's axiom never had a clearer exemplification.


A. N. Wilson also wrote a couple of decent books on Jesus and Paul. These were written, I think, in his sceptic years, and before he re-found the old-time religion.
