Alexander McCall Smith is a storyteller par excellence and the master of the serial novel form. Not content with the runaway success of the 44 Scotland Street novels he has established a second series, Corduroy Mansions, of which The Dog Who Came in from the Cold is the second volume. McCall Smith treats his characters as old friends, dropping in for a chat with them and to see what they’re up to. On this visit the residents of Corduroy Mansions, the charmingly crumbly mansion block in London’s Pimlico, are as full of stories and news as ever. Barbara Ragg, fearless literary agent, succumbs to romance and the charms of the Scottish Highlands whilst her colleague and rival Rupert Porter tracks a mysterious author through the halls of Fortnum & Mason. Dee, vitamin evangelist and retailer, hits upon a miracle cure with her Sudoku remedy while the loveable Terence Moongrove, exponent of sacred dance, is saved from financial ruin through timely intervention by The Green Man. And Freddie de la Hay, that most urbane and long-suffering Pimlico terrier, is enlisted as a secret agent by MI6 to spy upon suspect Russian businessmen. McCall Smith creates a vivid and fast-moving world in which minor miracles occur when city-dwellers break the habit of a lifetime and talk to their neighbours. And their dogs. 1. Language: English.

The protagonist of the film is General Douglas MacArthur (Laurence Olivier), who led the United States surprise amphibious landing at Incheon in 1950. Inchon begins with a depiction of North Korean soldiers moving past the 38th parallel north into South Korea in June 1950. Barbara Hallsworth (Jacqueline Bisset) heads for Seoul after hearing of the invasion. Her husband, U.S. Major Frank Hallsworth (Ben Gazzara), is involved in a love affair with a young Korean woman (Karen Kahn) in Seoul.

The U.S. succeeds in driving out the North Korean forces, and the last scene in the story shows MacArthur reciting the Lord's Prayer.

Yarralumla is a large inner south suburb of Canberra, the capital city of Australia. Located approximately 3.5 kilometres (2 miles) south-west of the city, Yarralumla extends along the south-west bank of Lake Burley Griffin. Europeans first settled the area in 1828, and it was named Yarralumla in 1834 from the indigenous Ngunnawal people''s name for the area. (It is also spelt "Yarrowlumla" on some 19th century documents.) Frederick Campbell, grandson of Robert Campbell who built nearby "Duntroon", completed the construction of a large, gabled, brick house on his property in 1891 that now serves as the site of Government House, the official residence of the Governor-General of Australia. Campbell''s house replaced an elegant, Georgian-style, stone homestead. Among the old Yarralumla homestead''s most notable occupants were Sir Terence Aubrey Murray, who owned Yarralumla sheep station from 1837 to 1859, and Augustus Onslow Manby Gibbes, who owned the property from 1859 to 1881.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Distant Voices, Still Lives is a 1988 British film directed and written by Terence Davies. It evokes working-class family life in Liverpool during the 1940s and early 1950s, paying particular attention to the role of popular music, Hollywood cinema, light entertainment, and the public house within this tight-knit community. The film is made up of two separate films, shot two years apart but with the same cast and crew. The first section, 'Distant Voices', chronicles the early life of a working-class Catholic family living under a domineering patriarchal regime. The second section, 'Still Lives', sees the children grown up and emerging into a brighter 1950s Britain, only a few years from rock 'n' roll and The Beatles, yet somehow still a lifetime away. In 2007 the British Film Institute re-printed and distributed the film across some of Britain's most high-profile Independent Cinemas, prompting the The Guardian newspaper to describe Distant Voices, Still Lives as 'Britain's forgotten cinematic masterpiece"
