Weekend Video 1

Today's video needs an introduction. It dates from 1962 and features a singer called Claude Francois singing catchy rubbish!

But in the seventies in my Paris we found Clo-Clo, as he was called, something of a kitsch icon. That was certainly the case in 1976. That was the summer when my accommodation in Saint-Tropez overlooked the tiny La Ponche beach (third house from the left, next to the steps, top floor).

And after I had downloaded the video clip I spotted hints that it had indeed been filmed in La Ponche, the very oldest part of what was once a sleepy fishing village.
