    I have one of those tins that was my Gt Uncles who was killed out there. That programme started an interest in him and his time in SA that continues to this day, I've been out there to follow his route until his death just prior to Spion Kop and now plan to write it all up. As my story of his story started with that Blue Peter edition I can add a bit more accuracy to my tale.
    Slightly odd I know but in most other ways i'm perfectly normal!!

    Now you mention it I also recall something along those lines. I'm sure they had a tin with chocolate still in it because i recall one of the presenters (probably John Noakes!) trying it, not sure if the dog had a taste too>
