Some clips... tap dancers and geniuses...

Norman Norris, AKA 'Jumping Jack' and 'The Earl of Mustard,' was one of the old school buskers who performed round Leicester Square and beyond.  Yet, after initial confrontations with the new breed of guitar toting street musicians, he was quick to join them.  There is a special section in the book dedicated to him.  All three of us worked with him at various times: for me especially, as the youngest, he showed me much and I had a great affection for him, despite his craziness and relentless need for attention.  Here are two clips from the film 'The London Nobody Knows,' with Norman and Alan Young playing and talking.
