You've got to go back to 1956 when I was eighteen with a ginger beard, first year university students and we used to have rag day, when we used to get money for charities and so on. And we used to get up to all sorts of acts, I don't think they'd let you do it now. Imagine five hundred students on a ferry going across the river running from side to side, rushing across here like this and then going straight back to the other side at speed and getting it going. And the whole ferry started rocking, five or six feet either side. The crew were furious. Good fun.
