Today we had the sad news of Kate O’Mara’s passing. I remember her best from the 1972 TV series, The Brothers where she played Jane Maxwell, the tough female boss of an air freight business.
We watched this series with my mother and sister in the mid 1970’s in Finland. To me England seems very foreign in those days – it was so different from my life studying for a Baccalaureate in Helsinki.
Little did I realise then I would not only be moving to the UK a few years later, but also be running a family business a little like the Hammond family haulage firm, with my family about ten years later…life, eh?
