Dominie Courtauld’s story

Charlie Courtauld is a charmingly eccentric producer of heavyweight political television. He’s also filmed his kids reading a story written by their grandmother, for her birthday tomorrow.

You can watch the story, in four parts, on YouTube: 1, 2, 3, 4. Charlie’s keen for as many people flung as far as possible should see the piece, and – if so moved – return a message to his mother on her birthday.

Leave a comment here and I’ll make sure it gets to Charlie.


  1. Ha, ha, ha, reminds me of Gilshill times 😀 Fantastic, even I can’t say crynathsamsismumsnums! This is exactly what YouTube and the like is for. Happy Birthday Granny

  2. Thank you so much for these comments. Charlie’s my husband and yes, he is a bit eccentric, and spent the whole of one weekend recording us all reading this, without any planning or rehearsal time!!!
    So thanks for noticing it and being so generous in your review!
