Wood Brothers: The Early Years

When there’s a re-schedule on BBC2 that effects a program you love, you start by looking in obvious places for explanations.  When you can’t find satisfactory answers there you might tear your hair out a bit and then start a long period of introspection. During this period of personal reflection that followed the surprising interruption to the broadcast of the On Hannibal’s Trail series I’ve been looking into Wood Brothers’ past for clues.  Did something happen a long time ago that pre-ordained a rocky road ahead?  This picture turned up in a box of photos dated 1981.  It’s taken in the Spanish port of Marbella by Tom, a friend of our grandparents.  It really has nothing to do with Hannibal except it shares a Spanish location and brings back fond memories!
