A YouTube video with millions of views can be mislabelled, it really doesn’t matter! There’s a video with 1.8 million views (July 2018) sure to keep rising to several million, of the UB40 song (originally Neil Diamond) Red Red Wine. The title is Bob Marley – Red Red Wine.

A tendency to look in a book written about a place (while you’re actually in the place) rather than look at and observe the place.
The notion of middle aged women being invisible in media is part of a much wider and complex web of phenomena.
