Fans of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory will love www.stilldemanding.com, a site created by Virgin Holidays. Virgin has enlisted Julie Dawn Cole, who played the original Veruca Salt, and sent her off to South Africa to make some videos.
It's an innovative idea and we think it works really well. Although we might have suggested some additional activity around it - some podcasts, a Facebook page, put all the videos on YouTube...
Just as a footnote, while searching around for links to write this post I came across an article by Hank Williams (not this Hank Williams) who argues that by behaving just like dear Veruca, we are all responsible for the torrid state of the economy.
Ah well. Watch the videos on Virgin's site and they might just cheer you up.
