Before I completely take leave of the summer, I just wanted to say that I was lucky enough to attend the 're-premiere' of Zulu at the Odeon, Leicester Square, London, on 11 June. I was only saying earlier in the year how important the film was in encouraging my interest in Anglo-Zulu history, so I was delighted to have the chance to see it again on the big screen - with one or two exceptions, it hasn't been shown in cinemas since its last major release in the early '70s.

My apologies - it's been a bit of a hectic summer at home, not least because I have moved my study, an experience which has proved to me that everything my wife says about my pathological inability to organise my working space is true. Something which I had thought would take a few days actually ran into weeks, not least because of the prodigious amount of dust which needed to be brushed off nearly everything at the back of the shelves.
