All Fall Down
Thirty years ago with a flash of purple on white, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean skated into history with straight 6's at the Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, with their now famous Bolero routine.
History almost repeated itself today as around 100 people turned up in the Old Market Square at lunchtime to recreate the final couple of movements of the ice dance, and without Ravel's music to dance to.
The whole thing was filmed by Notts TV, the counties new television station that starts broadcasting next month.
Amazingly enough, the real Torvill & Dean mage a guest appearance at the very end, with a very bemused look on their faces as they look at all the inert bodies lying on the granite floor.
They are in town for the next couple of days, as they are appearing in Dancing on Ice at the National Ice Centre.
