Ken Begg, July 2016

As one of Robert Drewe’s fellow travellers on Malcolm Fraser’s 1976 visit to China, I enjoyed his journey back in time (June) – with one exception. The song I sang to the redoubtable Mr Shen may well have been droll, but was it a Wayne Newton number? Never! The song was ‘Bei mir bist du schön’. And the words? My own.
