I found a small book with this title ion the local Oxfam. It was first
published in 1975 (my copy is a 1976 reprint). There are a few (almost
unreadable) maps at the front and the text divides into two parts: the
front section those characters who are active in TA at the time of
publication and the second , smaller, part is of those who have
departed, either by the intervention of the Grim Reaper or have moved
out of the area.
The descriptions of the characters are a bit unexpected. I will give one
David Archer: "At sixteen young David Archer does not want to follow the
family tradition of going into farming. He is at boarding school [. . .]
pave the way for a career in politics."
The Archers Encyclopedia says " As a child, he had quickly shown an
aptitude for farming."
Now although these two statements are not totally irreconcilable it does
seem a bit odd don't it?
