Do any of you watch Call The Midwife? We do and last night's episode (Sunday 25th Feb; episode 6, series 7) was the one we had been waiting for. Sister Monica Joan's eyesight had been getting worse and it turned out she had cataracts. She made a bit of a fuss but Fred finally got her to have the operation which was more complex in 1963 than it is now. After the operation she was given a new pair of glasses to wear and she was delighted with them as she could see again. We know what other viewers don't; they are an early NHS frame from Dead Men's Spex! It is always exciting to see our glasses in TV programmes and films.
