Travels inspired by the Wombles

It's Christmas!

No, not yet. But the annual battle for 'Christmas No. 1' - which normally leaves me and, perhaps, many other people, cold - has a different flavour this year.
Everyone's favourite Wimbledon residents are bringing out 'The W Factor', a compilation of 20 remastered tracks. For those who didn't know, or have forgotten, the Wombles' musical oeuvre covers much more than Wombling Merry Christmas. The new album covers classical (Minuetto Allegretto), Bond themes (To Wimbledon with Love) and country and western (Nashville Wombles). It's all very entertaining, and a reminder of what a clever man that Mike Batt is.
I look forward to saying on Christmas Day, in the style of a certain Norwegian football commentator:
'Simon Cowell! Louis Walsh! Dermot O'Leary! Your boys took a HELL of a beating!'
