The song was featured on the BBC TV series "Not the Nine O'Clock
News". There were two albums of sketches and songs from the series
released and "Oh England" may well be on one of them, but they are
probably hard to find even in GB. I believe they were called "Hedgehog
Sandwich" and "The Memory Kinda Lingers" or something like that. I'll
try and check for sure some time.

The soundtrack was definitely released in GB because a friend of mine
has it.  I do not think it was released in the US.

Sorry, I meant Wembley Arena not Wembley Stadium. The latter has a
capacity of 100,000 for football matches; probably more for concerts
like Live Aid when they use the pitch as well. The Arena is much
smaller - I don't know the capacity off hand - plus its indoors so the
acoustics would be an order of magnitude better; similarly visuals.
The Arena is where people like Witney Houston play when they come over

Watch out for XTC to self-destruct in the near future then :-)

Certainly has.

	Be seeing you.
