Question 28 answer

Mike Batt (born Southampton 2/2/1950, trivia fans). His birth details are not needed for the full mark. As for why, well, to add to the money he made writing all the songs for The Wombles (can it be true that they were top selling records?) might be one answer, but I'll accept that he wrote the song for the film Watership Down. I read the book twice, and noticed that whereas in the book no rabbits from the group that sets out to find a new warren die before the end, the film changes things and has lesser characters being butchered left right and centre. Great book, but I'm sure it has done much harm in convincing people, who are now adults, that rabbits are like humans with different shaped bodies.
