I searched and searched. I even contacted a company in Saskatchewan which specialised in locating hard-to-find videos and DVDs, and they admitted defeat. At last, thanks to the kindness of an alert reader, I have got hold of it and watched it for the first time in 45 years.
I searched for 10 seconds. Perhaps Hitchens means he couldn’t find a reel copy for his 16mm projector

Yes, but you live in the real world, and didn’t spend hours in the library compiling a list of potential sources, and then send each of them a hand written later by snail-mail

He talks about the Queen dying, and references those scary modern phenomena of the death of Princess Diana and people liking rock music and sports.

Got to be a pisstake. Got to be.

Mr McDandy has prompted me to reread the article, it is indeed utter bollocks.
All that research into marijuana has finally caught up with him

Don’t think its weed he’s on. The Ukrainian army was nothing of the sort a few months ago. Many are battle hardened from Afghanistan and Iraq banking favours with the Yanks.
Isn't the Ukrainian army amazing? A few months ago it was just a few overweight, undertrained geezers with ancient weapons.

Like me, all keen observers of "Mr. Hitchens" knows that every word he utters or publishes is deadly serious and that in public, at least, he carefully nurtures his reputation for lacking a sense of humour. So, when Hitchens says that in the 1960s Jagger and Richards and Lennon and McCartney contributed to the destruction of the middle class values, morality and society to which he wishes Britain could return but knows is forever lost, you better believe he means it. Similarly, when he says the British turned their backs on Christianity to worship at the altar of footballers from Best to Beckham and beyond, he'll point to the reams of meticulous research presented in his own work to prove this fact.

As someone pointed out to me a while back, never automatically assume that someone whom lacks a sense of humour = intelligent.

Quite the opposite, usually.

Hitchens reminds me, if anyone, of Adrian Mole. Socially conservative and convinced he's a genius because he knows a few long words and looks down on what he sees as common pursuits.

His most bizarre claim on this subject was the divorce epidemic was the fault of dangerous counter culture figure Englebert Humperdinck*
