Somebody offer me some comfort, please. It's that Mozart time of year again, and we have been watching some of the film Amadeus. Could you believe that three of my year 8 classes believed that: They had electric lighting and cars in the 18th Century - so why were they using candles? Someone was wandering around filming the Emperor of Austria and his court and Mozart with a hand held video camera and that is how we got the film Mozart is still alive Salieri disappeared for 250 years and is now back A piano and a harpsichord are the same thing (despite my just having shown them that they weren't) Mozart was blind (the actual question was "Was he blind all his life or just the first bit?") Mozart was deaf (the actual question was "Wasn't he the deaf one wot wrote da-da-da daa?") I give up. Shallow end of the gene pool? I'm beginning to think they aren't even in the water.
