"I Have Heard the Mermaids Singing"

A Mermaid (1900) J W Waterhouse

Q: What could be a better way to spend half an hour or so of your time than listening to Janet Ellis as she investigates the power of the mermaid image and its origins?

A: Not much.

The question could have been just what could be better than half hour of Janet Ellis but I suppose that could be a wee bit onm the suggestive side.

Just stumbled across your blog and want to say thanks.

Did you see the lovely Janet on the recent Sweeney tribute show? The clip showed her in bed next to John Thaw wearing nothing other than a German Helmet!

I have the box set, have been working my way through it for the last few years and had neglected it of late.

I shall commence again with vigour.

Missed that one, curses!
