This is a 7 part story.
If you like Ken Loach’s 1969 film ‘Kes’ – you’ll have fun.
If you don’t like ‘Kes’, I’ll see you next week.
Or just stick around and by the end of the week – you probably will like it.
Man In Field Makes Us Laugh
OK let’s set the tone for the week. Let’s see whose ‘in’.
Because only a Kes fan will find this video funny, I think.
Man in field.
Runs towards camera wearing red tracksuit.
A tune made most famous by Monty Python plays in the background.
Is he improvising and just doing what the hell he wants? Probably.
Why is it funny? Because I had a PE teacher like this.
(We all had a PE teacher like this).
(And by the end of the week I’ll have explained how I went from watching Kes wide-eyed and open-mouthed in 1978 aged 10, to wandering around HMV in Newcastle in 2017 aged 49, alongside David Bradley (Billy Casper), buying every copy of Kes in the shop).
