  1. Having just read the gripping piece in The Observer, I wanted to remain immersed in the magic and mystery of your quest, find out more about you, and commend your tenacity (with which I also identify!). It was gratifying that you succeeded in unearthing some sparkling footage of Joyce, which, in a sense, brings her back to life. It would have been great to have heard her voice, but presumably Kirk never found the tape? Look forward to seeing the film.
