Awesomepedia! Video! The Cambridge Legend of the Bridge of Sighs!

The Cambridge Legend of the Bridge of Sighs

Why was an Austin Seven hung under the Bridge of Sighs in St John's College Cambridge in 1963? This video tells the story of the legendary car prank, from someone who was actually there - my father! It also tells the story of Brian Burrows, opera singer, tenor, and a daily inspiration to me and all. I made this video for my dad's birthday on May 4th, 2017.

Switch on captions in case you have difficulty hearing it all!

There are a lot of details I did not have time to go into in the video: My father has been a computer programmer and an English teacher, taking over after William Golding. As a child he was in the original performance of Noye's Fludde by Benjamin Britten, playing the lion. And that beard he had in Tom Jones at Drottningholm was totally real!
