And yes I do mean the old Beatles movie (film) from 1964.

There's a clip with Ringo walking along side the Thames when two scullers go
by. A few minutes later the camera swings to the river again and one sculler
has flipped the other in attendance.

Can anybody shed light on this? Carl may be! Which club, names of scullers,
boats etc. May be it was Carl!

I was only 6 years old at the time.

I've just seen a Video of 'Hannibal'; there's a shot of Lecter on a
bridge in Florence - beneath him two scullers go by.

I wondered; did the Director plan this, or was it just good luck ?

(off topic ... what a place to scull ! How do you keep your
concentration in the boat ?)

Although it's probably 30 years since I saw it, I remember that some
of the action took place around Strand-on-the-Green by the river in
Chiswick.  Local clubs at the time would be UL, Horseferry, Quintin,
Ibis, Tradesmen and MA.

Locals who might remember could be John Peters at Quintin or Tony
James at MA.

Ah, that brings back some happy memories. Firenze 1990. The Italian rowing
federation were celebrating an anniversary and invited all the countries in
the 1989 2+ World Champs finals to send a crew to race a sprint knock-out
regatta in Florence. Redgrave and Holmes weren't available so Adrian Cassidy
and I went with Ali Patterson coxing. Racing under the Pont de Vecchio
against the Abbagnales brothers was a special experience. It was co-incident
with Italia 90 the European football champioships, so at the receptions
there were huge TVs with the games playing. Very civilised.

There's a club just beneath the bridge,
if the water level is high enough there are
alway some rowers out there on the water.

Hmmm ... are you suggesting that I made up the story? i'm pretty confident -
it was the year after the junior worlds in Szeged 1989 and I think the
seniors were at Bled... I rowed with Adrian after the Easter trials through
to final trials when he got into the 8 for Tasmania. The worlds were very
late in 1990 - October I think - well into the first university term. GB 8
came 4th. i was asked to be in the spare pair and said no because i didn't
want to mess up college and university rowing. Or maybe i'm making it all
up.

Henning was referring to the fact that it was the World Cup (not
European Soccer Champs or World Champs) the same variety which will be
coming to South Africa in 2010, :)

Ah, the football! Yup, he and you were right. Sorry.
