About this deal

One of the lesser spotted teddy bears stalking through the vast forests of British children’s TV is Teddy Edward, a medal wearing and globetrotting teddy whose adventures are captured in Teddy Edward. Most of St Aubyn’s books include a thank you to the writer Francis Wyndham, who died in 2017 and was one of many quasi-paternal figures in his life. “I think inevitably someone like me who had an unsatisfactory relationship with their father will look for benign adults who do things normal fathers do,” he says. Other father figures included the director Mike Nichols and the artist Lucian Freud, and the quality that united them was their “unalloyed support and enthusiasm” for St Aubyn (his own father, of course, gave him neither). “Being admiring is always a sign of strength, whereas other people feel they’re losing something if they admire someone else,” he says. INSKEEP: NPR's Ron Elving is reviewing two giant biographies of the late Senator Ted Kennedy. Ron, thanks so much.

E.M.I 45 rpm record No.FP10022 from BBC Tales of Teddy Edward, narrated by Richard Baker 'At the Seaside' and 'A Rainy Day' Lt F. H. Sherwood RCNVR, who attended the same course as Young, was the first volunteer reserve officer of any Commonwealth nationality to command a submarine when he took command of HMS P556, a week before Young took command of P555.ELVING: Remarkably so. Ted Kennedy was built for the Senate. He was affable and even chummy with his colleagues across the aisle, including uber-Republicans such as Bob Dole of Kansas and Orrin Hatch of Utah. He was a master at insider negotiation and deal cutting, whomever he was dealing with. He would have the information when others didn't. He had command of the substance and the politics, incredible patience. He would talk to all sides, all interests, and he was tireless in pursuit of the best deal he could get. a b c d e f g h i j k l "Commander Edward Young". The Times. London. 31 January 2010 . Retrieved 5 April 2010. Why all this excitement about a teddy bear? Well first of all Teddy Edward is no ordinary bear with his medal which he won skiing, but it is a fact that teddy bears have been international characters ever since Teddy Roosevelt invented the teddy bear. Generations of children have had and loved teddy bears - there are even teddy bear clubs like 'The Good Bears of the World' of which Teddy Edward is a distinguished member - and there is really no sign that the modern child will ever desert them. An interesting development arising out of his travels is that Teddy Edward was invited to write of his Saharan travels in the travel issue of Harpers/Queen and he very much hopes to follow up with a description of his Everest trip.

The series was not an in-house production by the BBC and, instead, came from Q3 London who also produced Fingerbobs, Crystal Tipps and Alistair and Joe. Richard Baker was brought in following his previous children’s TV voice work on Mary, Mungo and Midge in 1969. Five Teddy Edward books were published in the early 1960's and over 250,000 books were sold. Enid Blyton praised them and said that Teddy Edward seemed to do all the things that every child would want their own teddy bears to do. Postcards also appeared at that time and have been on sale ever since.

He was super famous, in some ways scandalous. But I believe it's argued that he was more significant for the less famous things that he did. The boat was HMS Storm then being built by Cammell Laird on the River Mersey. On commissioning Storm joined Third Submarine Flotilla and her first patrol was to northern Norway. This was to be the only patrol in European waters as Young and Storm sailed to the Pacific in late December 1943 to become part of Fourth Submarine Flotilla at Trincomalee, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Arriving in the Far East in February 1944, Storm carried out four patrols and one special mission from Sri Lanka. During the first two patrols they sank a Japanese navy minesweeper as well as several merchant ships. After two patrols Storm landed an agent on the Japanese held island of Pulau Weh in northwest Sumatra. Four days later, Storm returned to collect the agent, during which time the Japanese had prepared an ambush and Storm came under concerted gunfire as the two-man special forces team rowed ashore to meet the agent. Young held Storm as close as possible to the shore to allow the two men to return to the boat. Once retrieved Young dived the submarine and made for home. One member of the crew had been wounded during the exchange of gunfire. [2]
