Storyline

After Bea and Tom have visited their grandparents' graves Tom notices, from an old clipping, that grandfather William competed in the 'Austerity Games, the London Olympics of 1948. They also discover that great aunt Vera left her flat to Mildred Budgens, who, despite Pete's innocent surmise, was more than a friend. Tom and Pete visit Mildred, who gives them souvenirs of the Austerity Games before Tom meets William's contemporaries, who tell him that William was not a very good athlete, any more than Pete when he tries his hand at boxing. Meanwhile Bea and her dummy Monkey do a disastrous gig at a Greek wedding whilst Tom learns that he has American ancestry on his grandfather's side. Written by don @ minifie-1
