Subject: RE: BS: A tour of the British Isles in accents
Lynn, I remember 'Thunderbirds' (rather primitive animated puppet adventure series years ago) used a strange mid-Atlantic accent for all the characters except Lady Penelope, who spoke in a very posh way, and Parker, her cockney chauffeur. Anyone else remember Thunderbirds Are Go? I expect the mid-Atlantic accent was to make it saleable in the USA as well.
