Hi folks,

The first, set in wartime Britain, is Paul Gallico’s classic tale of heroism “The Snow Goose”.

The second, a great episode of “Mr. President” as we find out which President liked taking walks in the swamps surrounding Washington DC at night to “lose” his bodyguards… and who faced a murderous armed intruder in the Oval Office.
