How old is Jer these days? She must be nearing 85/90 I'd say?

She's still such a bright and engaging little bird.  It was a pleasure to watch.

Sad to hear her at the end... she had some wonderful pics of Freddie in her home. Really strange to think that these are simply just family photos to her. Her accent is still really thick, got me wondering too... what languages Freddie spoke apart from English?

Would he have spoken African?

I mean - he was born in Zanzibar, so...surely he must speak it?

Hmmm...

he had such a strong English accent though, you would never have believed he was from a foreign background.

Did he speak African?

Probably in the same way he spoke Swiss.

And also this additional video report from the BBC - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZDGMVmZBSw&NR=1

Unfortunately, the audio is out of sync, but it's nice to see anyway.

Thanks for the info, guys! This is a kind of those rare reports when we find out something new about Freddie, his "early days". Just wonderful. And we are plunged into that warm home atmosphere of young Freddie which he loved too much - usually most people don't know how he actually lolved that warm home peace...
