Re: Name that tune

Well done Steve. :)

I am being a bit dim with regards to the ' Esso Blue ' reference, even though I'm ancient enough to remember the advert: Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom ... Esso Blue. :fsbgrin:

Re: Name that Film

Peter, if you look up Paddington Bear on Google all will be revealed.

I did check out certain details about the film before putting up my original post.

Here are a few of the main facts:

Distributed in the UK ( 2017 ) by Warner Bros, then worldwide ( United States 2018 ).

More clues:

2: Marmalade.

Another line:

There is one particular scene in the film where some people, myself included, had to dab their eyes with a tissue. :cry:
