Another half hour docu drama that questions...what happened to John Cabot? (1461-1498).

An Italian explorer in the service of England, claimed to have discovered the North American coast on his first voyage. The fate of his second voyage is unknown. England based its claim to North America on Cabot's discovery.--From New York Public Library American History Desk Reference.

The rich Grand Banks fishing grounds were getting lots of attention at this time, and in this film, The Bristol fishermen are worried that another country may lay claim to those fishing grounds. When Cabot does not return from his last voyage, a Royal inquiry ensues. There is speculation as to whether he was murdered.

Paul is featured as Presenter and recedes to the shadows when dramatization of the historic characters occurs in the scenes. Again, quality of caps not great based on original.

Evil Maddy gets to see Paul with a globe, wearing a long black cloak again.

Paul never seems quite so sexy as when he's doing something 'instructional'--is it shades of Patrick Vine perhaps? He has this whole arrogant, self-assured, all-knowing thing going on when he does.

I don't know how much information I'd actually pick up listening to him, though, having a hard time getting beyond 'the voice'. That aside, I think Paul would've made a great teacher--a university instructor more precisely. And now we're back to Maddy's prof in rumpled corduroy! Very Happy

*sigh* Thanks again for the caps, Maddy, you've been busy. Appreciate it. Smile

Only Paul could make "arrogant", sexy! Very Happy I doubt
I'd pay much attention either! I'd be too busy drooling!
And I'd probably have "Love You" written on my
eyelids ala "Raiders of the Lost Ark"! Laughing Laughing

Why am I hearing The Police's "Don't Stand So Close To Me" as I read this? Twisted Evil

Or alternately, this:


Did you say (that) i've got a lot to learn
Well don't think I'm trying not to learn
Since this is the perfect spot to learn
Teach me tonight

Starting with the abc of it
Getting right down to the xyz of it
Help me solve the mystery of it
Teach me tonight

The sky's a blackboard high above you
And if a shooting star goes by
I'll use that star to write "I love you"
A thousand times across the sky

One thing isn't very clear my love
Teachers shouldn't stand so near my love
Graduation's almost here my love
You'd better teach me tonight

I've played loves scenes in a flick or two
And I've also met a chick or two
But I still can learn a trick or two
Hey teach me tonight

I who thought I knew the score of it
Kind of think I should know much more of it
Off the wall, the bed, the floor of it
Hey teach me tonight

The midnight hours come slowly creeping
When there's no one there but you
There must be more to life than sleeping
Single in a bed for two

What I need most is post graduate
What I feel is hard to articulate
If you want me to matriculate
You'd better teach me tonight

What do you get for lessons?
Teach me - come on and teach me - teach me tonight

I would have paid more attention in school if my teacher looked like him! drool

I know, where was he in eighth grade, when I was snoozing with my head on the desk during the Lewis & Clark and Ponce de León documentaries?? Laughing

Wasn't there even something about tittering in the back of the room when Rime of the Ancient Mariner was used as an educational tool in British secondary schools?

See, it's not just me. Surprised

There's a streak of Professor Higgins to him that almost wants bringing out in a film. The "I'm in control, and this is how it is, my dear." And then, he's surprised when he finds out it's not. LOL!

I would have been too busy looking at him rather than absorbing what he was teaching.... Wink

Exactly my thought, Catherine. And I'd hand in my written assignments personally and go to every of his consultations. BTW, if he'd give an additonal tutorial, you can be sure I'm there too in the front row. Mr. Green Just in case I'm drifting to dream land he can come straight up to me and scold me. Oops, seems I'm already in dream land. Rolling Eyes
