Nothing to do with PNG (except that it shows it's the grassroots that toil and suffer the world over), but Robson's new series on the history of northern industrial England has just started on SBS.

'How The North Was Built' is lovely and would be a great educational resource for history teaching. Robson is humble, gently amusing and historically detailed.

And I take back my comment about him over-acting. Maybe he just gets excited about fishing.

And yes, Robson could have gone fly-fishing for trout in the highlands.

I was sitting on the beach at the Coconut Bar on Los Negros in Manus the week before last with John Wilshere, the ex-Kumuls captain and Matt Brugh from the famous Goroka family having a quiet SP.

Nine year old Michelle and her little brother Will Smith and his dog Spotty had just brought us a new round when out of the calm water about 100 metres offshore a sailfish about a metre and a half long rose out of the water, winked at us, and then slid back into the sea.

Where else could that possibly happen?
