Last Night's Viewing: Up in Flames: Mr Reeves and the Riots, BBC1<br />Living with the Amish, Channel 4
Friday 16 December 2011

"Jawohl," replied Maurice, who, at 80, may harbour some faded wartime prejudices about the old enemy. This time, though, the Germans hadn't come to Croydon to bomb it but to interview Mr Reeves about his furniture shop, which had been comprehensively blitzed by aggressors far closer to home during the recent riots. Mr Reeves, as well as trying to resuscitate the business from premises down the road, was also being kept busy talking about his experiences to foreign news crews. And, rather touchingly, he turned out in the end to have very few prejudices.
