Ferrets down your trousers? That’s Life! | Television

I enjoyed your article on That’s Life! (‘Esther, the singing dog won’t sing!’ Rantzen and team on the joy of That’s Life!, 31 May). I worked on the programme as a film editor. One of the “stunts” we filmed was a chap who put two ferrets down his trousers, held by cycle clips. These pranks were often copied by viewers at home. The production office got a letter from a man who had risked replicating our film item. It was written on hospital notepaper.

My mother refused to let me join the Brownies (Letters, 30 May). She said she couldn’t afford the uniform. Working in Leeds two decades later, I bought a Brownie uniform at a jumble sale. I wore it with jeans and relished all the wonderful badges. I’m still working on my housekeeping skills.

You describe cats as “sensitive, intelligent and expressive animals” (Kitty confidential: 13 secret signals all cat owners need to know – from a quivering tail to aeroplane ears, 1 June). As we say in Glasgow, “Aye, right”. I am curious: when was the last time anyone saw a cat sniffing for explosives, guiding a visually impaired person, or chasing down a criminal?

A Scottish friend buying extortionate G&Ts at a London bar remarked: “These English measures, it’s no’ worth dirtying the glasses” (Letters, 31 May). It’s become a regular quotation.
